    With the recent advent of high-performance desktop computing and (nearly) infinite cloud computing, optimization techniques are entering mainstream design processes every day. There are so many offerings in this space—where do you start!? This industry talk aims to shed some light on the topic by taking a close look at the various Autodesk offerings in topology optimization, lattice and skin optimization, generative design (topology synthesis), and optimization for additive manufacturing. Attendees will get a firsthand look at actual production processes in use today that utilize these design optimizations, and they’ll learn the larger business impact that can be realized through optimized geometry.

    Key Learnings

    • Learn how to identify the current Autodesk offerings for lightweight design creation
    • Understand the difference between topology optimization and Generative Design
    • Learn how to select the appropriate optimization technique for various projects
    • Discover nondesign business drivers that can be impacted through optimized design
