This paper aims to propose a new structural topology optimization method using a dual-level point-wise density approximant and the meshless Galerkin weak-forms, totally based on a set of arbitrarily scattered field nodes in the design domain. One benchmark numerical example is employed to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed design method.
