Currently across the DoD and commercial sector, a part “optimized” for strength, stiffness, and weight is achieved using a tedious, multi-step process. Typically, optimization is conducted through a series of iterative design/engineering analyses, yet in some instances topology optimization is used. What the existing FEA software lacks is the ability to enforce constraints associated with subtractive manufacturing, which are primarily tool access and tool path among others. Creare’s Topological Optimization Software (TOS) package will interface with existing FEA software, enforce the necessary subtractive manufacturing constraints, and output CAM ready CAD files for CNC machining.
