Engineering software company nTopology Inc., headquartered in New York City, USA, has launched the latest version of its computational-modelling software, nTop Platform 2.0, which the company states, is the only engineering software that enables engineers to simultaneously consider geometry, performance and manufacturability within a single, reusable workflow.

The latest update is said to include support for pre-packaged, application-specific nTop Toolkits, letting engineers quickly learn and use its most powerful capabilities. Bradley Rothenberg, CEO of nTopology commented, “We are excited to release 2.0 of nTop Platform, nTop Toolkits enable the best engineering workflows to spread wide throughout industries, making the most advanced modelling technology accessible to any design engineer.”

According nTopology, the nTop Platform was developed to solve engineering problems where geometry is a bottleneck. It can handle complexity and iteration with speed and ease and the prepackaged Toolkits and authoring capabilities can both be used to automate engineering workflows. With nTop Platform, teams can automate tasks that take hours, days or weeks with traditional design tools because of the ability to build reusable workflows.

nTopology reports that it is also partnering with industry leaders in Additive Manufacturing hardware to deliver new capabilities to their users. Fabian Krauss, Global Business Development Manager at EOS explained, “The flexibility and high performance of nTopology software and its ability to package-up customer workflows helps us and our customers to create advanced Digital Foam.”

Krauss added, “We use it in projects to create 3D-printed products with architected materials properties tailored exactly to customer needs. It unlocks the true potential of generative design in Additive Manufacturing for Digital Foam and for many other applications.”

The latest nTop Platform features the following capabilities and benefits:

Lightweighting Toolkit

  • Quickly and easily reduce the weight and maximise the performance of parts
  • Shell parts in seconds no matter how complex the geometry
  • Apply variable wall thickness to shelled parts


Architected Materials Toolkit

  • Engineer functional materials that perform at any scale – hundreds of unit cells, or hundreds of billions
  • Design with multifunctional requirements from the start. Structural, thermal, acoustics, or aesthetics; all with total control at any length scale
  • Optimise unit cells to create unique material properties to perfectly suit the application. Increase surface area while reducing weight. Turn geometric complexity into a competitive advantage


Design Analysis Toolkit

  • Use fully integrated simulation capabilities to seamlessly analyse parts in a single, connected workflow
  • Drive geometric parameters directly from simulation results to achieve high-performance parts that meet functional requirements
  • Integrate with the simulation tools an organization already uses, including ANSYS, Abaqus, and Nastran


Topology Optimisation Toolkit

  • Discover new and innovative designs early in the product development cycle
  • Apply multiple loading conditions and optimise for a variety of performance criteria including stress, displacement, stiffness, and weight
  • Use automated geometry reconstruction tools to quickly generate instantly editable geometry


Additive Manufacturing Toolkit

  • Position, orient and prepare parts for Additive Manufacturing from a set of common build platforms
  • Add lattice support structures easily and quickly
  • Slice parts avoiding error prone STL files and export manufacturing data directly to machines
