NEW YORK–The latest version of nTopology’s computational-modeling software, nTop Platform 2.0, enables engineers to simultaneously consider geometry, performance, and manufacturability within a single, reusable workflow, according to nTopology. The version includes support for prepackaged, application-specific nTop Toolkits, allowing engineers to quickly learn and use its most powerful capabilities right out of the box, nToplogy said in a news release.

The nTop Platform was developed to solve engineering problems where geometry is a bottleneck. It can handle complexity and iteration with speed and ease. The prepackaged Toolkits and authoring capabilities can both be used to automate engineering workflows, delivering efficiencies and scaling an organization’s best talent across the enterprise. With nTop Platform, teams can automate tasks that take hours, days, or weeks with traditional design tools because of the ability to build reusable workflows, the company said.

“We are excited to release 2.0 of nTop Platform,” said Bradley Rothenberg, CEO of nTopology, a developer of engineering software for advanced manufacturing. “nTop Toolkits enable the best engineering workflows to spread wide throughout industries, making the most advanced modeling technology accessible to any design engineer.”

nTopology is also partnering with industry leaders in additive manufacturing hardware to deliver new capabilities to their users. “The flexibility and high performance of nTopology software and its ability to package-up customer workflows helps us and our customers to create advanced Digital Foam,” said Fabian Krauss, Global Business Development Manager at EOS. “We use it in projects to create 3D-printed products with architected materials properties tailored exactly to customer needs. It unlocks the true potential of generative design in additive manufacturing for Digital Foam and for many other applications.”

In addition to the new prepackaged Toolkits nTop Platform’s authoring capabilities allow a company’s most advanced engineers to create their own proprietary toolkits, enabling secure knowledge transfer across the organization, the company said.
