Engineering design software company nTop (formerly known as nTopology), headquartered in New York City, USA, has announced the latest release of its nTop 4 Additive Manufacturing software. The major update is reported to build upon nTop’s core technologies, and introduces new capabilities across four key themes: design, integration, scaling, and adoption.

Co-founder and CEO, Bradley Rothenberg, stated, “At nTop, we have always believed that design is at the core of solving the world’s hardest engineering problems. nTop 4 marks the next stage of our journey enabling engineers to deliver highly engineered AM parts for products to reach new levels of performance.”

The new update includes:

Field Optimization

Field Optimization is a new generative design technology that reportedly helps engineers navigate the design parameters introduced by complex engineering problems, in hopes to accelerate decision-making and improve part performance.

Field Optimization layers a multi-scale and multi-objective optimisation engine on top of nTop’s core technology, resulting in a design tool that is said to be both extremely powerful and easy to implement.

Implicit Interop

As AM parts increase in complexity, legacy design file sizes become a roadblock. Implicit Interop works to eliminate data exchange bottlenecks, enabling data transfer between nTop, manufacturing, CAD, and CAE software in files sizing in the megabytes.

nTop Automate

nTop Automate reportedly enables users to multiply the impact of engineering resources by executing nTop workflows through a programmatic environment. In addition to the Windows deployment, nTop 4 introduces nTop Automate for Linux, which allows engineers to unlock more economical cloud computing or use available on-premise high-performance computing (HPC) resources.

nTop Accelerate

New to nTop 4 is nTop Accelerate, a range of one-to-one training services, custom workshops, and design sprints. nTop also continues to invest in onboarding programs, such as nTop Learn, nTop’s online learning centre.
