Watch this webinar to learn how to create a design optimization workflow using the CATIA software suite and nTop.
This demonstration will first show you how to lightweight a part in nTop by optimizing lattice design, performing the meshing, and creating a finite element model.
Then we will import the nTop results into Abaqus to generate the global stress response, perform non-linear structural analysis using Tosca, run a fatigue strength analysis and determine the target structural response.
Finally, we will create a parameterized template to run a Design of Experiments using 3DEXPERIENCE Process Composer. This capability is enabled by nTop’s unbreakable geometry, which allows us to navigate a wide range of design variations without model failure.
Watch this webinar and learn how to:
- Integrate nTop with 3DEXPERIENCE Process Composer to automatically move data across design and simulation platforms
- Understand and optimize the lattice lightweighting process using nTop
- Integrate finite element simulation, non-parametric optimization, and durability analysis in an iterative loop for a Design of Experiments and optimization.
