ProTop Professional 1-tokenis a standalone topology optimization software that takes as input FNF, INP, GEO, and DAT files, generated by PTC Creo, Simulia Abaqus, SolidWorks Simulation, or Siemens NX.
ProTop Professional features Advanced design options by efficient shell and lattice configurators with full 3D solid models and it's fully interactive with excellent results and smoothing tools for direct 3D print.
What's New in Version 6.2
Reference node targeting in stress topology optimization; various reference node response values of individual load cases can now be used for targeting in topology optimization.
Improved response fields display; only selected volume regions and individual displacement components can be displayed now.
Updated mesh refinement tool.
Based on custom finite elements, developed in-house especially for topology optimization
FEA - highly parallelized code, high performance sparse solver
Optimizer - a hybrid evolutionary/level-set optimizer, highly parallelized code
Shell (envelope) and lattice structure generation from solid parts
Semi-contact and semi-plastic finite elements
Easy modeling of pin joints, bolt/rivet fastening, and similar contact situations
Simple and easy to use user interface; fully interactive optimization process
Structure: statically loaded, linearly elastic isotropic material
Objectives: minimum strain energy; maximum lowest eigenfrequency
Targeting: volume part, stress, displacement
Technological constraints: YES
Multiple load cases: YES
Smoothing and simplification tools for resulting surface mesh: YES
