In the world of 3D printing world, topology optimisation is the tool used to design the most oddly shaped components. Until very recently, TO was available only through expensive software programs intended for professional application. With the growing impact of the open-source and maker movements, some of these tools are now more accessible.
Topology optimisation determines the most-efficient material layout to meet precise performance requirements of any given component by taking into consideration space restrictions, load conditions and stress & pressure of the material. Topology optimisation today is opted by almost all leading manufacturers to enhance production capacity.
