This industry talk will provide attendees with an inside look at how Innovation Forge is utilizing Generative Design to break barriers in engineering problem solving. Often times, there are additional engineering criteria other than mass and mechanical loading which must be included in the overall development of a design. Aesthetic qualities, surface area, flow characteristics (both internal and external), and manufacturing methods are just some of the additional criteria that will be explored in this course. Attendees will be presented with tips and tricks to achieve the best results for the given design requirements and follow through multiple real-world examples of how Autodesk Generative Design is able to contribute to a much larger design process. To round out the session, attendees will be presented with areas of research to further aid in problem setup and generation.
- Understand where AGD resides in the product development spectrum
- Understand how to develop complex input geometry and loading to maximize the design potential
- Learn what happens after the Generate process completes and how to further develop/analyze design candidates
- Learn how to develop a set of tools for evaluating design based on non-AGD criteria
Michał Musioł is a mechanical engineer based in Cracow (Poland). He has been working on the development of Autodesk Generative Design in Autodesk as a Senior Quality Assurance Analyst since the beginning of the project. In his professional career, Michał worked as an R&D engineer in Automotive and Oil & Gas industries. He is experienced in new product development, optimization of existing equipment, tests witnessing and design verification using classical mechanics methods. Michal graduated from the University of Science and technology in Cracow in the field of Mechanics and Machine Construction. In his spare time, he enjoys long distance running.
Kenny Cornett is a design and manufacturing consultant based in northeast Tennessee. He is the founder and owner of Innovation Forge, a specialty design consultancy focused on digital design and manufacturing tools. Kenny has been using Autodesk tools for design and engineering for over 20 years, starting with AutoCAD R12. For his design education, Kenny attended the University of Tennessee and Tennessee Tech for engineering and currently studies industrial design at Academy of Art University. In addition to being a long-time power user, Kenny is also a member of the Autodesk Expert Elite, Autodesk Developer Network, Autodesk Services Marketplace Provider, Autodesk Pier 9 Innovator in Residence, and former application engineer from the Autodesk sales channel.
