Aim of the presented work is to introduce a method which is being coded. It works in conjunction with an open-source finite element solver CalculiX. One of the topology optimization methods - The Bidirectional Evolutionary Structural Optimization method (BESO) was chosen due to its simplicity, which is used in the way of python code standing above FE solver. Two test examples are presented. First demonstrates ability to achieve results similar to compliance based topology optimization on short beam leading to solid-void structure. Second example shows possibility to switch among different materials with regard to their allowable stresses.
