Nautilus Subsea are always looking at new posibilities, also how we make things. Topology optimization and generative design are tools that Nautilus have experience with, which can be utilised for all manufacturing methods.
Topology optimization and generative design are mathematical models which can serve as a great tool for optimizing structures based on stiffness and mass.
The optimization routines can be restricted to:
In addition, within AM there are many challanges related to printing of metal. Nautilus Subsea has the capability to perform process AM simulations with ANSYS. This reduce the risk by printing sucess the first time.
