Engineers widely use topology optimization during the initial process of product development to obtain a first possible geometry design. The state-of-the-art method is iterative calculation, which requires both time and computational power. This paper proposes an AI-assisted design method for topology optimization, which does not require any optimized data. The presented AI-assisted design procedure generates geometries that are similar to those of conventional topology optimizers, but require only a fraction of the computational effort.

Keywords: topology optimisation, AI-assisted design, computational design methods, design evaluation, design to x (DtX)
