nTop Live: Conformal Isogrid Ribbing on Low Bypass Turbofan Engine Casing
Isogrids are triangular ribs used in aerospace to stiffen lightweight structures. Designing isogrid ribs that conform to a surface in traditional CAD can be challenging, especially when the geometry has a large curvature.
In this nTop Live, Evan Pilz, Application Engineer at nTopology, goes through the steps you need to follow to add conformal isogrid ribs on the casing of a turbine engine using the least amount of effort in nTop Platform.
Watch and learn how to:
- Apply conformal isogrid ribbing to any surface in nTop Platform
- Create multiple design iterations 10x faster to identify the optimal solution
- Automate your workflows and reuse them in different parts to save time
