Case Study: Design for Metal Additive Manufacturing Part 2: Topology Optimization and Build Preparation
The aim of this case study (second part of a third part case study series) is to structurally optimize the component through topology optimization while ensuring a satisfactory safety margin. Furthermore, the component shall be prepared for additive manufacturing, meaning an optimal build orientation should be determined, and support structures together with machine files shall be created.
