From STL back to CAD in seconds!
Topology optimization analysis in ANSYS Discovery Live
The reverse engineering step between the topology optimized part and the validation of the resulting geometry can be time consuming and frustrating for the engineer that’s performing the art of STL repairing. Due to blunt shapes one may need to smooth faces and allow for curvature to make the upcoming geometry manageable.
This example illustrates a topology optimization performed in ANSYS Discovery Live version 2019R2 followed by a geometry conversion from STL (generated format for the geometry from the topology optimization) back to CAD.
