nTop Live: Variable Shelling based on Simulation Results for Lightweighting
Using the results of FE simulations, you can control the thickness of a shelling operation. This way you can remove material only where stresses are lower and further reduce the weight of your high-performance aerospace or automotive structural components.
In this nTop Live, Chase Allan, Solutions Engineer at nTopology, shows you how to apply a shell with variable thickness to a bracket in nTop Platform. He creates a reusable workflow that uses a CAD file and simulation data as inputs and exports the shelled geometry as a STEP file.
Watch and learn how to:
- Apply a variable shelling operation to any CAD part
- Verifying the performance of the shelled geometry
- Export shelled geometry back to CAD as a STEP file
