Hi,

Ameba v1.0.2 is now available for download .

Ameba is a type of single-celled organism capable of changing its shape in different environments.

Based on the Bi-directional Evolutionary Structural Optimization (BESO) technique originally proposed by Professor Yi-Min (Mike) Xie, his team at XIE Technologies has developed a topology optimization software tool called Ameba. The user may, according to design requirements, apply different loading and boundary conditions to the initial design domain. During the computational process by the software, the design domain will evolve, similar to an ameba, into various shapes, and eventually reach an organic form that is structurally efficient.

The team at XIE Technologies is committed to providing an advanced, easily-to-use topology optimization tool, to enable you to enhance your creative designs and accelerate your product development.

( Backward Compatibility is not currently supported, please download the latest version)

If you have any problem or suggestion, please report them here or send us an email to ameba@xieym.com.

This is a commercial plug-in. Ameba licenses can be purchased via our website. If you have a pro/edu license, you will get more elements for computing.

Thanks,

XIE Technologies

How robust are optimized topologies? If a load changes slightly, how much does the corresponding topology change - or fail?

Hi,
When there is only one load, if the load size changes, the topological structure will remain unchanged. And then if the load direction changes, the topological structure will change correspondingly. When there are multiple loads, if the ratio or directions of loads change, the topological structure will change.
Regards,
Albert

Wow. WOW! Great work Albert. I can’t wait to experiment.

Now cloud computing is already supported in any country! I hope you have fun with Ameba!
