Topology Optimization Results into Solidworks

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I've been using Optistruct topology optimization for a project I'm working on and I am satisfied with the results of the optimization. I'm now trying to make a CAD model of the part to simplify the geometry and make it more practical (adding surfaces for bolts to sit on and getting rid of the rough surface created by the mesh and OSSmooth). I'm using Solidworks as my CAD tool and can't seem to find anything about the most efficient ways of doing this. Does anybody have any advice?

 

Thanks!

Hi,

 

You can use OSSmooth to export the optimized part to different CAD formats.

 

Another way is to export the optimized shape  from HV as .stl.

Hi Prakash,

 

I've used OSSmooth to export a geometry before, but its not very smooth and creates a very complex geometry when loaded into SolidWorks that is filled with surface errors. Is there any simple way I could use the optimized geometry as a guide for drawing a cleaner part in SolidWorks?

 

Thanks!
