    Evolved Structures, a technology based on generative design and digital manufacturing, has the potential to revolutionize spaceflight system components. This presentation explores "prompt engineering" for guiding generative design artificial intelligence (AI) using textual and geometric information to create parts that meet functional, structural, and manufacturing requirements. By integrating essential design elements, engineers can maximize AI-driven optimization for innovative, high-performance spaceflight systems that are cost-effective and efficient to produce. The presentation will also showcase examples of fabricated hardware developed using this approach, which are slated for integration in future NASA missions.
