Harnessing the power of topology studies in SOLIDWORKS Simulation: Part 2

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Topology studies, available in SOLIDWORKS Simulation, are a highly effective way for design engineers to create lightweight, optimized parts. Topology studies can be used to explore a variety of design iterations to satisfy an optimization goal, subject to a set of geometric constraints. Topology studies start with a maximum design space which represents the maximum allowable size for the component. The topology optimization then seeks a new distribution of material, within the boundaries of the maximum allowable geometry, considering all the […]

Stratasys 3D Printing: FDM Part Curling – Lifting From the Tray

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

FDM Part Curling – Lifting From the Tray   From time to time, we see parts lifting off the build tray during printing.  There are two main causes. Both of which are related to air flow. If parts are positioned together tightly and air flow can’t move through the parts efficiently, it can cause parts to lift up. A  We also see part lifting in large flat parts. Printing in a SPARSE FILL will help with part curling. You can […]
