Topology (or Shape) Optimization in Autodesk Fusion 360 allows you to quickly simulate an improved model based on a given load and constraints.
This guide will teach basic Finite Element Analysis (FEA) theory, the various meshing options, available load and constraint options, and how to create results presentations (including images, animations, and HTML reports).
To optimize energy use in mechanical designs, reduce the unwanted friction forces when parts move against each other. Learn how to reduce friction with good use of materials, lubrication, wheels, and more.
To use fewer resources and treat the surrounding environment in a better manner, designers and engineers must use their expertise, along with advanced tools, to reduce the impact of our actions and consumption. One of these tools is computer simulation. Here you will learn the basics of how and when to use simulation for sustainable design.
Stress analysis can help predict if, when, and where things will break. You can use it to test if your design will be durable.

An ultra-light airplane manufacturer, Air Creation, identified their steering pedals for FEA optimization. They were able to reduce mass, embodied energy, even the cost of the part.
