Geometric Parameter Optimization of a Bracket

Application ID: 90011

This tutorial minimizes the mass of a bracket that is synchronized from Solid Edge® via the LiveLink™ interface.

There are limits both for the lowest natural frequency, and for the maximum stress in a static load case. The size and position for a number of geometrical features is changed to optimize the mass, while several geometrical constraints are enforced to maintain the design intent.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
