Workflow for Topology Optimization
When you use Creo Topology Optimization to analyze and optimize your model, you complete various activities in a certain order. The workflow that you develop depends on your design process, optimization goals, and your model. A typical workflow is described below.
1. Set up the model to apply real-world conditions, or use the setup from legacy models, other users, and so on.
Volume and surface regions
2. Set up definitions for optimization.
Structural, modal, and thermal analyses
Topology regions, including fabrication constraints
Design objectives
Design constraints
3. Create a mesh.
4. Set up the topology optimization study.
Design objectives
Design constraints
Topology regions
5. Run the topology optimization study. This could be time-consuming.
6. Explore the results of the study.
7. Construct a new model with optimized geometry based on the results.
