We present a level set based method for optimal design of compliant mechanisms. The focus of the investigation is on how to preserve the structural connectivity in the optimization process of the level set method. By introducing an extra constraint using the connected components labeling technique, the structural connectivity of the design is well maintained during the topology optimization process.
