Development of a New Lightweight Aluminum Profile for a Glass BalustradeThe design of architectural components such as a balustrade can be challenging, since the design does not only have to look good, it also has to meet several safety requirements and standards. In addition, all designs have to be developed within the shortest time possible. To meet these challenges the engineers, architects and designers at Faraone are always looking for solutions that can reduce their design and testing cycles.
What Can We Learn from Nature for Modern Architecture Structures?Eric Rusinol, an Architect from The Sagrada Família Foundation, gives us some insight into the project to finish Antoni Gaudí's iconic Cathedral in Barcelona, touching on the teams use of optimization and concept generations technologies from Altair.

The Design Revolution Offered by Combining Additive Manufacturing with Simulation Driven DesignTopology optimization is a computer based calculation procedure which can design mechanically stressed component structures in such a way that the highest possible rigidity can be achieved with minimal material usage. Only those parts of a component which are essential for the required flux of force and necessary stability are generated. This results in complex structures which can only be built partially or not at all using conventional production processes. At this point the advantages of additive manufacturing come into focus.
