Optimization software Autodesk Within is now commercially available, enabling users to design parts better suited to additive manufacturing. The software features Autodesk’s optimization engine and Nastron FEA package. It is capable of automatically verifying and optimizing lattice and skin elements in components.

Parts designed with the software can be optimized to be lightweight with a favorable volume reduction coefficient; robust to meet defined load requirements; flexible with a known displacement that can be tuned; and functional based on various design features including lattice topology, lattice unit size, variable density lattice and skins, and smooth meshing.
