Key Software Capabilities
- Lattice structures
Filters are used in many applications to remove contaminants from a fluid or granular mixture. Whether these contaminants are rust or dirt in a fuel line, molten steel before casting, or just coffee grinds in your morning brew, the general objectives and mechanisms are the same: to block particles of size while minimizing disruption of the flow that carries them.
In this nTop Live, Yuki Okada, Technical Marketing Engineer at nTop, shows you how to create a workflow to design multiple iterations of a surface filter. His reusable workflow applies fully controllable perforating patterns of different shapes to any surface filter geometry.
Watch and learn how to:
- Create a reusable workflow to apply perforation patterns in nTop
- Use Field-Driven Design to control essential design parameters
- Apply custom perforation patterns on any filter geometry
