Expanding Generative Design Through Concept Design Engineering

In Concept Design, Generative Design can be used to powerful ends. Engineers can apply it to explore a wide range of design alternatives early when requirements are the most flexible.

Engineers have less time today to design increasingly complex products. The product lifecycle is shortening, and competition is challenging. Furthermore, design errors can have serious implications, both for your design and your wider company. Generative design is part of the solution, enabling your team to increase their bandwidth in order to meet these challenges. Download the eBook from Lifecycle Insights analyst Chad Jackson to learn more about how facet modeling combined with generative design gives engineers and designers an unstoppable edge.

Exploring Generative Design Through Topology Optimization

Generative Design leverages capabilities like Topology Optimization, which runs structural simulations and removes material not carrying loads. However, this is only one of the approaches that Generative Design leverages. It can also mimic behaviors seen in nature, such as replicating the growth of bacteria colonies or the evolution of bone structures to optimize weight-to-strength ratios. These approaches are used to explore the design space of a new product. Interestingly, Generative Design can produce designs that a human engineer might never have considered, opening whole new possibilities in design.
