 PDF Key takeaways: Siemens PLM Software expands topology optimization in its NX 12 release. Siemens topology optimization relies on the Parasolid geometric kernel’s ability to support planar mesh geometry seamlessly together with precise geometry to enable a generative design workflow. Siemens PLM Software moves generative design technology forward by enhancing topology optimization within its most recent software release of their flagship CAD solution, NX 12. Traditional design methods rely on a “model then analyze” iterative cycle. The designer first creates a proposed geometric model of the product then follows with a post-mortem analysis to determine how well that product model meets design goals. Based on analysis results, the model geometry is then adjusted by the designer seeking to make improvements and the analysis rerun to confirm. The iteration continues until the designer is satisfied with the results. Siemens PLM Software recognizes that generative design methods are driving change in many product industries.
