Topology optimization of injection molded car pedal ribs
Published on May 28, 2021
Key Software Capabilities
- Topology optimization
- Field Optimization
Engineers developing injection molding products can benefit from applying advanced engineering techniques to save weight and cut manufacturing costs. For example, you can combine topology optimization and latticing to quickly explore different ribbing strategies and patterns and select the optimal.
In this nTop Live, Alejandro Lopez, Application Engineer at nTop, guides you through his process of designing lightweight ribs for an injection molded car pedal. He shows you how to use cutting-edge design techniques to generate design variations and incorporate this workflow into your existing engineering process.
Watch and learn how to:
- Explore different ribbing patterns that are driven by topology optimization results
- Run a static analysis in nTop and calculate weight savings for a quick evaluation
- Export your final design to CATIA for downstream operations and detailed analysis
