Introduction to Generative Design for Manufacturing


Course overview

Generative design is a new workflow that generates high-performing design alternatives with optimized geometry that is often far removed from a traditional design. Learn how to set up, generate, and explore design outcomes and post-process generative designs. Explore the basics of Fusion assemblies and geometry creation, with a focus on obstacle geometry. Set up a generative design study and learn advanced T-spline tools to post-process a generative output. With the rapid expansion of various types of manufacturing—from additive, subtractive, and even hybrid approaches—the generative design workflow gives you the power to explore every avenue of a design.

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

  • Explain generative design technology.
  • Create basic assemblies.
  • Use generative design.
  • Explore generative design outcomes.
  • Finalize advanced designs.
  • Edit sculpted bodies using T-splines.
