Q&A

Browse some of the questions we received during the live webinar.

  • Q: Is Generative Design available for education?

    A. (Updated) to learn more about Generative Design for students, go here.

  • Q. What types of load conditions does Generative Design account for?

    A. Generative Design offers solutions for linear static loading conditions.

  • Q. How many cloud credits does it take to run a project?

    A. 25 cloud credits to generate outcomes, 100 cloud credits to download an outcome

  • Q. How much does one cloud credit cost?

    A. About $1 (depending on your contract)

  • Q: Can the generative design account for redundancy? That is, if a load path fails, there needs to be redundancy in the part to allow the load to find another path.

    A. The many results that you’ll get will show you that you might have a 'load problem'. It won't change the load position or correct itself automatically. Plus, if the conditions are "unrealistic", you will get a message early in the process.
