There are at this moment not a lot of movies for this.
The Topology toolbar is working to go from left to right and fill in everything that is needed for your simulation.

So follow these steps:
1. Select your design space.
2. add material
3. add geometry rules (keep in, keep out, mechanical constrains for simulation)
4. add simulation rules (apply here forces of pressures)
5. Start simulation.

 

 

(view in My Videos)

also if you can to the startup folder that's in the download you will also find a help file of the tool.

Are you running Windows 7? That might be an issue.
I have the same problem, see: https://community.plm.automation.siemens.com/t5/NX-Design-Forum/NX-Topology-Opt-for-Designers/m-p/44...

Hi @fsedlace,

 

Topology Optimization currently only works if the language (UGII_LANG and/or regional settings) is set to English.  Based on your dialog your session is set to Czech, which is not currently supported.  Refer to PR 8971214.

 

Regards, Ben

 

EDIT:

 

Based on @LarsMEriksson comment (and hence IR 9033689), please make sure you have downloaded the latest version of Topology Optimization for NX 12 from the FTP server:
NX 12.0.0 Update 01 - NX30556 Topology Optimization for Designers.zip

Thank you for quick reply!

I have UGII_LANG set to English but my system (WIN10) is in Czech Smiley Sad.

 

Thank you!
