Generative design helps to quickly find near-optimal designs
for 3-axis and 5-axis techniques
Generative design creates innovative geometries with few constraints, which are perfectly suited to additive manufacturing techniques. While additive manufacturing holds great promise, many manufacturers still rely on subtractive production methods and it is not practical to make these novel designs using their existing facilities. To make these designs suitable for subtractive manufacturing methods, engineers must translate these designs into new shapes, which takes time and kills innovation.
Using next-generation generative design, engineers can explore different production outcomes for multiple manufacturing methods, including additive and subtractive techniques. They can evaluate both 3-axis and 5-axis techniques, avoiding geometry gaps and cloning these generative models to further optimize workflows.
Next-generation generative design allows engineers to identify designs that are feasible from a production standpoint. Thanks to automation, they can explore all valid geometric options under specific manufacturing constraints and find a near-optimal design quickly, to expedite the development and deployment of next-generation products.
