nTopology Releases New Version of Computational-Modeling Software

nTopology, provider of generative, manual and simulation-based design tools, launched the latest version of their computational-modeling software, nTop Platform 2.0. This software package allows engineers to simultaneously consider geometry, performance and manufacturability within one single, reusable workflow. This release includes support for prepackaged, application-specific nTop Toolkits, letting engineers quickly learn and use its most powerful capabilities right out of the box.

For orthopedic OEMs, nTop Platform supports repeatability of processes and workflows in implant design, ensuring compliance to regulatory standards and allowing engineers to efficiently explore more design iterations of hip, knee and spine devices.

nTop Platform is designed to handle complexity and iteration with speed. Prepackaged Toolkits and authoring capabilities can be used to automate reusable engineering workflows to deliver efficiencies and allow teams to automate tasks that take hours, days or weeks with traditional design tools.

“We are excited to release 2.0 of nTop Platform,” said Bradley Rothenberg, CEO. “nTop Toolkits enable the best engineering workflows to spread wide throughout industries, making the most advanced modeling technology accessible to any design engineer.”

In addition to the new prepackaged Toolkits, nTop Platform's authoring capabilities allow advanced engineers to create their own proprietary toolkits, to secure knowledge transfer across an organization.

Prepackaged Toolkits include:

Architected Materials Toolkit

  • Engineer functional materials that perform at any scale—hundreds of unit cells, or hundreds of billions.
  • Design with multifunctional requirements from the start with total control at any length scale.
  • Optimize unit cells to create unique material properties to perfectly suit the application. Increase surface area while reducing weight. Turn geometric complexity into a competitive advantage.

Design Analysis Toolkit

  • Use fully-integrated simulation capabilities to seamlessly analyze parts in a single, connected workflow.
  • Drive geometric parameters directly from simulation results to achieve high-performance parts that meet functional requirements.
  • Integrate with the simulation tools an organization already uses, including ANSYS, Abaqus and Nastran.

Topology Optimization Toolkit

  • Discover new and innovative designs early in the product development cycle.
  • Apply multiple loading conditions and optimize for a variety of performance criteria including stress, displacement, stiffness and weight.
  • Use automated geometry reconstruction tools to quickly generate instantly editable geometry.

Additive Manufacturing Toolkit

  • Position, orient and prepare parts for additive manufacturing from a set of common build platforms.
  • Add lattice support structures easily and quickly.
  • Slice parts avoiding error-prone STL files and export manufacturing data directly to machines.
