Below is a list of short tutorials that should help getting started more quickly.

NOTE. These tutorials are work in progress since they are being renewed for version 5. Please check occasionally for new material.

Getting started

  • Duration: 00:01:29
  • Open and import a preexisting FEM model (FNF file) of a simple bracket
  • Start and run a new optimization session
  • Export the resulting surface mesh
  • Duration: 00:02:51
  • Material region types are explained and illustrated
  • Duration: 00:04:41
  • A combined shell-lattice configuration is enforced on a solid part
  • A few optimization cycles are run to illustrate the behavior
  • Duration: 00:03:04
  • A surface of an optimized lattice structure is created
  • The surface is smoothed by engaging various tools
  • The smoothed surface is exported to a STL file
  • Duration: 00:06:17
  • Conventional maximum stiffness optimization is run
  • A modal eigenfrequency analysis load case is added
  • Combined stiffness and eigenfrequency maximization is run
  • Duration: 00:03:30
  • Manual LC management during runtime
  • Automatic LC management during runtime
