OSSmooth CAD model

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am new to HyperWorks and I am conducting topology optimisation. I am happy with my results and I am trying to get them as CAD. The result has 2 thicknesses, the base thickness I assigned and the maximum thickness, there are no void elements. I am using OSSmooth and when I get the STEP file, it is only exporting the regions with maximum thickness and not the base thickness. How would I export the component with both thicknesses?

I hope what I am asking makes sense. 


Thank you in advance.

After Optimization I think you would be interested in the optimized thickness (results) which can be exported as CAD.

 

In case you are having a model with more than one components and you are focusing on optimization of one component, then after analysis it would be appropriate to replace that single component with the optimized component and then try to export it (as CAD). So that you can get an optimized model/CAD.

If you really want both the thicknesses to be present in a single model, then you can do it by merging the components (optimized component onto the base component) and then export it but it would defeat the purpose of optimization. 

 

Thank You

Hi Prasanna, 

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

Could you please guide me on how to merge the optimized component with base component? Assuming the thickness of the base component will only be added to the optimised component on void regions with no material.

 

Thank you.
