    Generative design is changing the way that designers and engineers bring new products to market by generating and exploring hundreds or thousands of higher-performing options based on functional and manufacturing requirements. The benefits of generative design, however, are not exclusive to additive manufacturing technology, and can be used along with traditional manufacturing technologies like 2-axis cutting and 2.5-, 3-, and 5-axis computer numerical control (CNC). Made in Space is “the space-based manufacturing company” specializing in using the unique properties of the space environment to develop solutions to commercial, industrial, research, and defense challenges. Made in Space famously produced an on-board additive manufacturing facility on the International Space Station. Join Autodesk and Made in Space for an overview of taking a generative design project from project conceptualization through to design exploration of different manufacturing and material options, to producing the final component.
