Topology Optimization Software

Create structures with minimal mass and maximal stiffness.

Schedule a Demo

Topology optimization is a technology for developing optimized structures considering design parameters like expected loads, available design space, materials, and cost. Embedded early in the design process, it enables the creation of designs with minimal mass and maximal stiffness.

Topology Optimization Benefits

First Time Right

Create optimal designs early in the design process and significantly reduce costs associated with design failure.

Exceed Performance Targets

Maximize performance by designing parts and assemblies that can withstand all real-world conditions and loads. These designs are often stronger, lighter weight, and require less material.

Design for Manufacturability

Find the best distribution of material given an optimization goal and a set of constraints designed for traditional or advanced manufacturing.

Topology Optimization for Any Manufacturing Method

Altair’s industry leading topology optimization tools include shape optimization that focuses on multiple manufacturing processes. These topology optimization tools are built to consider and adhere to the rules and specs of multiple different manufacturing methods. Some of these rules include: symmetry patterns, draw direction, cavity avoidance, overhand angles, and more.
