Is possible to use SOL 200 for topology optimization?

[ Edited ]

Hi all,

 

Is possible to use NX Nastran SOL 200 for optimizing the topology of a part? for a static case SOL 101 and later launch a second case with SOL 200. I want to recude the stress and volume too. How can be customised the SOL 200 on NX CAE window?

 

Thanks, Igor.

Hi Igor,

Sol200 id not supporting topology optimization.
Do you have any manufacturing constraints that have to be considered?

Hi Boris,

 

I want to reduce volume and optimise stress, I know some sheet metal parts that can have a volumen reduction.

 

On the other hand, I have seen some FEMAP with NX Nastran videos with topology optimization. Is Femap using a different solver engine or plus other optimisation solver? Attached a video.
