Generative Design for Manufacturing Applications

Course | Skill builder
Explore generative design workflows that drive additive manufacturing, part consolidation, performance, weight reduction, and fluid flow

Overview

Generative design helps designers and engineers generate hundreds of valid design outcomes that satisfy design requirements. This advanced computation delivers outcomes that work in the real world. Let's explore generative design workflows that drive additive manufacturing, part consolidation, performance, weight reduction, and fluid flow.

After completing this course, you'll be able to:

  • Understand the generative design workflow.
  • Identify differences in study setup for a specific workflow.
  • Define generative design studies for several applications.
  • Create and review 3D models from generative design outcomes.
  • Validate designs with linear static stress simulations.
