    Solid Body or Surface Body

    For modeling it does not make a difference. 3D modeling will produce a bigger Finite Element model and therefore take more memory for solving analysis or optimization.

    Design Violations

    Hello, Here are a few tips to help you with your model: We recommend that you do not apply loads and supports directly on design space but separate your part in 2 regions (design space and non-design space) and apply your loads on non-design space You should run an analysis of your original design and check the safety factor on this one. If your safety factor on the original part is already below your objective safety factor then optimization will likely fail. Thanks, Matthieu

    Optimization Error

    Please see this topic.
  10. Hello, Your space issue is very specific, please continue the discussion with the support team through email.
  11. Hi David, You need to split your design space in different parts. You can then assign a different draw direction to each of your sub-design space :

    Factor of Safety lower than required

    The high stress happens outside of the design space. Those high stresses are typically taken care of at a later stage of design by more advanced optimization techniques such as shape optimization.

    Factor of Safety lower than required

    Please share your model with design space.
