Designing lighter, stronger products with generative design

Generative design is a modern engineering approach that accelerates the creation of lighter components perfectly suited for manufacturing, supplementing powerful design tools with topology optimization.

With generative design tools in today’s CAD applications, you’re able to define your materials, design space, constraints and targets, and a geometric solution is automatically calculated for you. The resulting shapes are ready for immediate manufacturing – no rebuilding, additional surfacing, or third-party tools required. It’s pretty fantastic.

Watch our on-demand generative design webinar to see these capabilities in action, and learn how you can effectively design lighter components, resulting in material savings, lower shipping costs, and more.

Software solutions for generative design feature powerful capabilities that enable you to design lighter, stronger, and more cost-effectively. These include the ability to automatically compute a reduced-mass geometric solution that maintains structural integrity using Efficient Topology Optimization for CAD parts. You’re also able to produce advanced parts ready for 3D printing and manufacture with a fraction of the effort. And you can continually evolve your designs using the latest convergent modeling technology.

The bottom line

Here’s the bottom line: generative design is where the product design discipline is headed. Now it’s time to simply get on board. The most immediate benefits of adopting generative design include:

  • Optimized designs
  • Lighter components
  • Lower material and shipping costs
  • Parts ready for 3D printing

And there are certainly many more reasons why to consider shifting to this approach.

Watch our on-demand generative design webinar to learn more about how generative design can help you transform your approach to product development to create stronger, lighter products at unprecedented speed.
