TOPOLOGY OPTIMIZATION

Just an old experiment I did using ToPy in Houdini. ToPy is written by William Hunter and it is the Python implementation and 3D extension of Ole Sigmund’s famous 99 line topology optimization code in Matlab. Since ToPy is written entirely in Python, it’s easy to use in Houdini. Preparing and converting the input and output files worked pretty flawless by using the Python VTK library.
