Hi @Sanjay_B,

It's a add-on. You need to download it from SPLM Download Server.

To download go to "NX > Full Products > NX12 > Windows (64-bit) > Add-Ons > Topology Optimization"

It was until NX 12.0.1 an add-on.
In NX 12.0.2 it's in the installation. Take a look into your NX 12 folder if there is already a subfolder "Topology_optimization".
When you have different NX installations maybe you need to set the path in a startscript
set NX_TOPOLOGY_OPTIZATION_DIR=%UGII_BASE_DIR%\TOPOLOGY_OPTIMIZATION
and yes: there is a Typo (not from me :-)

There is no need for additional DL. I have in this dir ~86MB.

Do you have a license (sc_des_topol_opt)?

Then RMB for additional ribbon.

Open or create a new .sim file and you will be able to see it.

You should not have to create a new .sim file. Top Op is a designer tool and should appear in Modelling

Ok so I spoke with the Product Manager for Top OP and the recommendation is that you download it from GTAC and install as per the instructions inlcuded in the download. It is a licensed product so you will need a license file with it in too.

 

Hope that helps
