Generative design is a broad and holistic design methodology that includes all goal-driven and computational approaches to engineering where software is used to generate geometry based on a set of logical operations and user-defined rules.
In other words, generative design is a set of digital tools that augment your capabilities as an engineer and designer. These tools address the main engineering need to explore efficiently and effectively the entire available design space, enabling you to converge quickly to the best possible solution that meets all design requirements — both technical and non-technical.
Generative Design is a holistic methodology that augments the capabilities of engineers with digital tools, enabling them to innovate faster. In this 20+ page guide, we explain how you can use nTop Platform as a powerful Generative Design toolbox that gives you complete control over every aspect of your design workflows.
Generative Design is getting a lot of attention — but what is it exactly? Here is why the current Generative Design concepts fall short and how nTop’s alternative approach enables you to unlock its full potential today.
In this webinar, Yamaichi Special Steel explains how they combined the advanced capabilities of nTop Platform with their own custom software (Cognitive Additive & OptiBot) to create a generative design workflow tailored to their needs.
Smart algorithms won’t just lead to better products—they could redefine how product development is done.
This article focuses on the application of Generative Design to mechanical engineering. Note that Generative Design also refers to the autonomous generation of electrical schematics based on diagrams, as well as placing components and routing traces through circuit boards that are based on diagrams.
In this speaker series, experts in the field of Design for Additive Manufacturing will discuss applications for metal 3D printing and the constant trade off between engineering requirements and design for the manufacturing process.
Ian Symington, NAFEMS Technical Officer, reached out to members of the NAFEMS Vendor Network nafe.ms/vendor to get their thoughts on Generative Design.
This report will document the design process of a Fuel Cooled Oil Cooler (FCOC) from initial design in CAD, process steps in nTop Platform, and final Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis steps in ANSYS CFX. This document should serve as a reference for nTopology users to perform similar simulations on their own designs.
nTop engineers designed, analyzed and printed a fuel-cooled oil cooler using nTop Platform, ANSYS CFX and a new additive aluminum alloy developed by HRL Laboratories. This blog takes you from start to finish in the series that began in late 2019.
