An example of part consolidation using nTop Platform to design a lightweight manifold for additive manufacturing.

nTopology has updated its nTop Platform 2.0 computational-modeling software.

The software now includes support for its application-specific ‘Toolkits’, which can help automate engineering workflows.

nTopology says that it is also partnering with additive manufacturing (AM) companies such as EOS to deliver new capabilities to the industry. The additive manufacturing toolkit can reportedly help oosition, orient and prepare parts for AM from a set of common build platforms, add lattice support structures more easily and quickly, slice parts avoiding error-prone STL files, and export manufacturing data directly to machines.
