1.
A designer ran a generative design study for a wall-mounted tether bracket. The intent for this study was to produce a readily manufacturable, lightweight, and load-satisfying design. The fluctuating loads encountered by the design were accounted for in a series of defined load cases. The material and manufacturing method is up to the designer’s discretion, but there is an approaching deadline within which the designer must produce the manufactured part. Which of the following outcomes is an optimal candidate to be exported as a design for the given parameters?

3. A designer imports a bracket assembly into a clamp assembly and joins it to the end of the clamp. Which of the following workflows would allow the designer to remove the selected bolt from both this assembly and the original bracket assembly?

4. A designer is applying loads to the shaft of a rotating arm for a generative design study. The study is to be run with a 3-axis CNC, a 2-axis cutter, and unrestricted manufacturing configured. The arm will be made with 1060 steel. The load cases must account for the variable loads at key angles throughout its 210° rotational path. The base of the arm will be fixed in both non-rotational axes. Which of the following workflows will allow the designer to define all necessary load cases in the most time-efficient manner possible?

5.
A designer is preparing a generative design study for a component that is to be optimized for mass reduction. The component will be manufactured out of a material that has a Yield Strength of 275 MPa and an Ultimate Tensile Strength of 310 MPa. The designer wishes to limit the maximum stress on the component to be 100 MPa. What value should be put in the annotated box?

15. A designer has run a generative design study and is currently exploring the outcomes. The designer ran the study for Ti-6Al-4V and 1045 Steel for unrestricted and additive outcomes with the goal to minimize the mass. The applied load cases are extremely accurate as they are extracted from years of measurements on the existing device. The deviation of the expected loads from the assigned values is negligible. The goal of this single part is to be a lightweight, easy-to-manufacture, and inexpensive replacement for the existing assembly of multiple components. Which of the following filter and Scatter Plot configurations will make this selection easy?
