Project Lab - Topology Optimization of Arbor Press Frame using Altair Inspire

What is this project about?

The objective of this project is to re-design the frame of the press using as little material as possible.

For a reliable design, the forces acting in the frame (the joints) need to be known. Hereto, we set-up and runĀ  a motion (kinematic) analysis with Inspire Motion (which is inlcuded in Inspire). Once we know the forces, a toplogy optimization is carried out with Inspire.
