A manufacturer has designed a fuel pod in NX. The fuel pod has a hemispherical and conical end, and a cylindrical midsection.

To minimize material costs, the manufacturer wants to minimize the surface area of the fuel pod while maintaining the existing volume.

This application:
  • pulls the current dimensions of the fuel pod (radius of the hemispherical end, length of the cylindrical midsection, and height of the conical end) from the NX CAD model,
  • calculates the current volume of the fuel pod,
  • optimizes the dimensions to minimize the surface area while maintaining the existing volume,
  • and pushes the optimized dimensions back into the NX CAD model.
