Simple Steps to Use ECLIBSETM

ECLIBSETM is a cloud-based generative design platform that helps you to generate lightweight and functional lattice & solid structures within a few steps, including specifying the designable / non-designable domains, load cases, material properties and the optimization model.

Step 1. Import geometries

Import one or more STL files to define the design domain and non-design domain. Please ensure the non-design domains overlap with the design domain.

View the imported STL models by highlighting, show/hide, rotation, translation, zooming, color change, cross-section view and default view.

Step 2. Load cases

Define the load cases, each of which includes one or more boundary and loading conditions.

Step 3. Material properties

Specify the material properties, including the material name, density, Young’s modulus, Poisson’s ratio and yielding stress.

Step 4. Design responses

Define the design responses, e.g. the weighted compliance and volume ratio. A weight (0.0 ~ 1.0) for each load case should be specified.

Step 5. Optimization

Specify the objective function & constraints with the design responses defined in Step 4.

Choose the resolution (Coarse / Fine), which corresponds to the level of structural details in the final optimized design. If there are small or thin geometric features in the structure, the 'Fine' resolution is recommended.

Submit the optimization job.

Once the optimization job finishes, ECLIBSE™ will send out a notification message in the GUI to the user to View and Download the optimized design in STL format.
