21. A designer is setting up a study to run a shelf bracket through generative design. The designer is simply looking for an abstract output from the solver and therefore has only selected Unrestricted as the manufacturing method. The designer has discretized 7 planar mass locations along the length of the support region of the bracket. The wall mounted side of the bracket contains only preserves at the bolt locations. The designer wishes to streamline the process of applying variable loads to the discretized masses that will all act at one time. Both the direction and magnitude will change, but the load type will always be a force vector. Which of the following methods will allow the designer to quickly create the loads for each of the discretized masses?

23. After solving their generative design study, a designer is parsing through the outcomes to identify a potential candidate for export. The part was designed to be a single brace that replaces a multi-component assembly of parts on a robot’s motor mount. The study was set up for additive and unrestricted manufacturing with ABS plastic and Nylon 6 as the material choices. The part was optimized to maximize stiffness given a factor of safety of 3 and a mass target 75% that of the original components. The designer selects a converged additive output for ABS plastic that meets all the criteria, but hesitates to export the design. The output contains a few thin struts that cannot be manufactured on their machine, and there are a few odd protrusions on the preserve geometries. The designer is on a tight deadline and needs to submit the final design for manufacturing in 5 hours. Which of the following should the designer do?

24. A designer has set up a generative design study for a phone stand that will be additively manufactured using ABS plastic. The study setup accounts for the load cases associated with key positions of the phone within the stand, but no external forces from the environment. The designer has solved the study and is currently determining which outcome to export such that it can immediately be submitted to a 3D print utility. The properties of the outcomes vary only in the factor of safety and the mass. The designer is not concerned about the cost of the material required. Which of the following choices should the designer make?
