ReOPTIC is a research project funded by Vinnova within LIGHTer, which deals with geometry OPTImization of Cast components for weight efficient structures.

The purpose of this research project is to find new methodologies to consider casting requirements already in the topology optimization process. The aim is to enable design of lighter components in a more time efficient way by utilizing the design freedom of casting together with the numerical topology optimization techniques. The expected result is an improved methodology for topology optimization of cast components for automotive and aerospace applications.
