Altair’s OptiStruct Allows for Topology Optimization and 3D Printing of Lattice Structures

Altair will give a presentation at the 3DDE Conference! Altair has twenty years in the business of optimizing strength in structure and design for just about every major industry. With their newest solution, OptiStruct, Altair is specializing in 3D printed lattice structures – something which has not been available for most of their clientele … until the advent of 3D printing technology and further innovation propelled everyone into a new design age — with spectacular new tools. This will be added to their HyperWorks suite of engineering software.

OptiStruct gives a multitude of global companies the affordability to assess and create structures possessing the required characteristics necessary in terms of strength and reliability. With the combination of 3D printing, Altair can offer design of lattice structures and composites, helping clients in many industries to stay innovative, sharp, and ahead of the competition.

The OptiStruct solution, included in Altair HyperWork engineering software, is award-winning, and aids in optimization for Topology, Topography and Size.

3D printing has come into play in optimizing structures due to its ability to allow for objects with complicated shapes that are also hollow. The lattice structures that can be created allow for assessment of Tension, Compression, Shear, Flexion, Torsion and Fatigue life. … (read more)
