Key Software Capabilities
- Generative design
There are many different ways to manipulate the model view in nTop. The software is equipped with tools and utilities that enable you to be more productive and avoid the infamous “CAD goggles” trap (*).
In this nTop Live, Yuki Okada, Technical Marketing Engineer at nTop, gives you tips and tricks to quickly manipulate model views to speed up your workflow. He goes over the basics of the view cube, camera settings and rotational styles, and explains how to effectively use the display grid and ruler, the named views and the GPU acceleration feature.
(*) “CAD goggles”: When you zoom in so far in your design software that you lose a sense of scale and end up designing parts and features that are too small to manufacture.
Watch and learn how to:
- Manipulate the basic model view in nTop
- Use efficiently the different camera settings, controls, and tools
- Enable GPU acceleration to visualize design changes at unmatched speeds
