Generative design

Generative design software

Take complete control of your generative design workflows to design processes, not just parts.

How do we define generative design?

At its core generative design is a methodology that uses goal-driven computational approaches to create a design that meets your engineering requirements. Traditionally this has meant feeding limited parameters into a “black box” algorithm and receiving results that require extensive remodeling and post-processing. Here at nTop, we’re evolving the definition of generative design by allowing engineers to manage the entire process. nTop gives engineers the power to capture custom logic and unique design requirements for complete control over both the geometry you produce and the optimization workflow needed to create it.

Why use nTop for generative design?

Full-flight qualification for F-16 aircraft AM spare part in just 30 days

nTop, Origin, and Stress Engineering Services used nTop to redesign a family of F-16 aircraft hydraulic tube clamps for AM as participants in an advanced engineering competition. They used a design-optimize-build-test approach with cutting-edge design and simulation, and the final part was 2x stiffer and manufacturable on demand.

Is your software ready for additive manufacturing?

Traditional software isn’t built to take full advantage of new opportunities for engineers. Maximize the benefits of additive manufacturing with the best generative design tools available.
