Fancy geometry right? You have probably already noticed that the legs of Ascento have an organic and exotic looking design, especially in our previous prototype. This is not because our engineers decided to go full creative and free shape the parts, this is the result of topology optimization.
By specifying where our loads and supports are located the topology optimization software searches for the most efficient design. This is a great tool to use with 3D printing since any arbitrary shape can be produced.
Our leg parts have been designed using traditional CAD modeling but inspired by the results of topology optimization, reducing material, mass and overall costs.
