5 ways to optimize your design

Gauge optimization, size and shape, and shell optimization, can be used to improve an existing design without altering its overall architecture. 3D topology optimization can be used when a significant re-design is desired because it identifies the optimal load paths of a structure and recommend material reduction. The material layout produced in the 3D topology is then interpreted into a concept design which is dimensioned and fine-tuned with the gauge, size, and shape approaches resulting in a final structure. Do you want to learn how to execute all the techniques mentioned? Step-by-step tutorials are available now for download!

SimLab – Create Rib

How to create rib option in Simlab. Product: SimLab Product Version: SimLab 14.0 or above Topic Objective Create rib option in Simlab. Topic Details This is used to create ribs in the meshed body (both 2D and 3D). A transparent box/plane is created first and adjusted to suit the shape of the rib. The Rib will be in similar shape as that of the transparent box/plane. So, it is necessary to define the box/plane correctly. The box/plane should cover all the faces that need rib.
