Generative Design: Shifting the paradigm in 3D metal printing

Generative Design employs computational algorithms along with artificial intelligence and machine learning to mimic nature’s evolutionary processes. It offers new high-performance design iterations that optimise a product’s mechanical performance. Engineers can also explore design possibilities according to part constraints and requirements to deliver a first-time-right additive manufacturing solution.

Generative Design: Making the Impossible a Reality

While engineers and designers can provide the best starting points, design exploration can quickly build on those parameters and generate the most effective and refined alternatives that we may never have thought possible. The engineering simulation community is now embracing this technology more than ever before.

Topology Optimization Additive Manufacturing Constraints in nTop Platform

In the recent nTop Platform 2.24 update, we introduced the topology optimization overhang constraint for Additive Manufacturing. In this blog post, we take a deeper look at the unique capabilities of this new feature and how it allows you to create optimization workflows that are different from every other solution currently in the market.

Generative Design Powered by Embedded Intelligence: The Next Design Frontier?

The more that systems thinking becomes an integral part of how design processes are performed, the more our engineers will examine critically the interaction of the various subsystems and components inherent to an overall system, rather than in an isolated manner. This webinar will look at how model-based design and model-based development can work alongside generative design, powered by pervasive simulation for the entire product team. Is this the next major step that is needed in our industry to design, validate and support our products with advanced integrated systems that have been increasing exponentially in complexity?

Generative Design Positioning Paper

The vision for Generative Design is that it could enable a significant paradigm shift in the design processes used today by enabling designs to be computer-generated based on a proper specification of rules, requirements, and constraints. This overturns the current practice of design, where designs must first be created so they can be evaluated against their performance requirements.

Initial Thoughts Regarding Topology Optimization in Support of Generative Design

Generative Design is the use of algorithmic methods to quickly and automatically, or iteratively, transform requirements, constraints, uncertainties, and design space to create/drive viable designs or outcomes. Requirements, constraints, and uncertainties may include factors from multiple areas including: design, performance, manufacturing, usability, aesthetics, ergonomics, and cost.

Generative Design Assessment Autodesk Fusion 360 Generative Design Workflow

This paper provides an assessment of the Generative Design workflow in Autodesk Fusion 360.
