Topology optimization and generative design are mathematical models which can serve as a great tool for optimizing structures based on stiffness and mass.

The optimization routines can be restricted to:

  • Additive manufacturing (3D-printing)
  • Milling (3-axis or 5-axis)
  • Turning
  • Cutting

In addition, within AM there are many challanges related to printing of metal. Nautilus Subsea has the capability to perform process AM simulations with ANSYS. This reduce the risk by printing sucess the first time.
