Design advancements are exciting and offer solutions previously unthought-of to complex problems. But we can’t forget the manufacturing processes needed to fabricate and eventually implement that new and optimized design. This class will focus on the emerging Generative Design technology in Fusion 360, and multiple ways to manufacture those designs, capitalizing on additive manufacturing, subtractive manufacturing, and a combination of both. The goal will be to explore design and manufacturing workflows to bring this emerging technology into the fold for potential users with varying levels of manufacturing capability. This class will address the workflow from initial generation to final part, focusing on the best practices found along the way.
- Discover the steps involved, from generating a design to moving on to an additive or subtractive manufacturing process
- Discover how the generative design process could apply to your manufacturing process
- Discover the pros and cons of the additive manufacturing process as it relates to generative design
- Discover the pros and cons of the subtractive manufacturing process as it relates to generative design
Matt Lemay is currently an Enterprise Solutions Lead for Advanced Manufacturing. The Enterprise Solutions Lead team is a new group in Customer Success Services, targeted at offering comprehensive and flexible solutions that help Enterprise customers master the FoMT.Matt is a Mechanical Engineer with experience in composites manufacturing (Laser Projection Technologies), as well as additive manufacturing for patient specific surgical implants (ConforMIS). Since joining Autodesk, Matt's role has been aiding Enterprise Manufacturers in adopting Additive Manufacturing technology, through developing services that address the technical knowledge gap. As an Enterprise Business Agreement (EBA) entitlement, customer's can understand their Additive Manufacturing readiness through the Enterprise 3D Printing Maturity Assessment; as well as evangelize new technical mindsets internally through the Additive Manufacturing Fundamental Concepts (learning management system) and the Introduction to Generative Design (learning management system)Outside of professional engagements, Matt is active through the Autodesk Pro-Bono program and has volunteered on advanced manufacturing projects including: Patient Specific Maxillofacial Implant Design (Mexico), and 3D Printed Prosthetics (Uganda)
