Generative design mimics nature’s evolutionary approach to design. Engineers input design goals into generative design software, along with parameters such as materials, manufacturing methods and cost constraints. Unlike topology optimization, 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 session explains this exciting new design tool.
