Generative Design in Manufacturing
Course | Outcomes and capabilities
Generative design is a design exploration process. Designers or engineers input design goals into the generative design software, along with parameters such as performance or spatial requirements, materials, manufacturing methods, and cost constraints. The software explores all the possible permutations of a solution, quickly generating design alternatives. It tests and learns from each iteration what works and what doesn’t. This course will guide you through the foundational concepts required to perform an analysis. You'll start with a closer look at what generative design is, then progress through model preparation, design space, constraint and conditions and finally explore results generated.
