Generative design: additional mass or force in modal study

Generative design: additional mass or force in modal study

1. Describe your environment: What is your industry? What is your role in your organization? Describe your stakeholders.
Space industry. Team lead of mechanical group


2. What version of Creo Parametric are you currently running?
9.0.2.0

3. Describe the problem you are trying to solve. Please include detailed documentation such as screenshots, images or video.

Running a modal study in the Generative design module to maximize the fundamental frequency there is no option for adding an additional mass, such as a point mass. For example for a bracket supporting something I would like to add the mass of that something, connect it to the supporting surface(es) to get the optimization to work toward an overall frequency. Otherwise I must optimize for a guessed high frequency and then in Simulate add the additional mass, hoping that I meet the desired overall minium frequency.


4. What is the use case for your organization?
All bracket designs

5. What business value would your suggestion represent for your organization?
Less wasted time
