Recently, the industrial machinery paradigm has undergone a significant evolution. Today’s machines are no longer primarily a mechanical piece of equipment, with the electrical design and software development in their own separate silos.
To improve on the design of your machines, multi-disciplinary design optimization and Generative Design can help with design ideas that a human engineer might never have even been thinking of! By simply defining a set of constraints, our generative design software will provide alternative, improved designs using algorithms created from topology optimization, opening a whole world of new possibilities in creativity!
Power to the engineer – with collaborative design optimization, generative design, and facet modeling!
In this eBook you will learn how to use Generative Design in a collaborative design optimization environment that presents you many more design alternatives you were able to produce on your own, and you will find out the numerous applications of this technology in Concept Design and Detailed Design.
Furthermore, it will show you how to use Parametric, Direct, and Facet Modeling interchangeably in our integrated software solution, avoiding the significant friction in the digital workflow that comes with the use of CAD applications alongside specialty CAD-like applications often used to enable Generative Design.
And as there is no need to move 3D data, Mesh Geometry, or boundary representation, between different software applications, you don’t have to waste your time fixing geometry. You can focus on design, instead.
Explore a wide range of design alternatives early when requirements are the most flexible with collaborative design.
Engineers can leverage a collaborative design process to very quickly develop new products based upon meeting design constraints. Generative design It is an iterative process that produces fast results the engineer can refine via constraint variation to narrow in on the best design to meet the requirements. As companies face increasing pressure to deliver products to market faster, generative design is now a necessity in product development. Engineers, constrained by time limits, frequently choose the first feasible design rather than the optimal one. It is imperative for companies to adopt tools that empower engineers to find the best design to meet requirements sooner in the development process in order to stay competitive.
Generative design in the development process
At a high-level, Generative Design is relatively simple. It is a capability of CAD applications that autonomously generates several design alternatives given a set number of constraints. This can be done without an engineer’s guidance or interaction, freeing them up for other tasks.
