      Ansys Discovery Topology Optimization Weight Reduction

      Ansys Discovery features best-in-class Topology Optimization Tool, which helps you compute an optimal structural design for a selected region in your model with specific design goals and constraints. It is a physics driven optimization tool that is based on a set of loads and boundary conditions.

      Currently, you can use optimization to either maximize the strength of your topology, minimize the response to free vibration, or balance strength and frequency. You can also target a specified frequency or optimize to minimize volume or stress.
      You can apply manufacturing constraints which will generate designs suitable to your preferred manufacturing process which will help you further.

      This knowledge material will guide you on how to setup simulation for minimizing the volume with various constraints. Ansys Discovery further allows you to run a validation simulation on the optimized part faceted geometry.
