This paper incorporates the homogenization theory into non-penalized Smooth-Edged Material Distribution for Optimizing Topology (SEMDOT) algorithm to conduct the design of cellular structures with the maximum shear modulus. The parametric study and comparison with existing results obtained by BESO are carried out. The numerical examples in 2D and 3D demonstrate the effectiveness of non-penalized SEMDOT in generating smooth cellular structures with the maximum shear modulus. Compared to BESO, SEMDOT can achieve comparable results and smoother boundaries. Smooth boundaries obtained by SEMDOT can facilitate the manufacturing of obtained cellular structures in 3D or 4D printing.
