Generative Design in Autodesk® Revit® is a new feature now available through the AEC Collection with Revit 2021. Now you can quickly generate design alternatives based on your goals, constraints, and inputs to give you higher performing options for data-driven decision making.
Generative design is used to
provide practitioners the ability to quickly explore, optimize, and
make informed decisions to complex design problems. Think of
generative design software as an assistant that helps with creating,
testing, and evaluating options.
How Stamhuis used generative design to deliver a variety of design options at speed
Netherlands-based retail builders Stamhuis were facing a difficult challenge... In retail, the longer your store is closed, the more customers you lose. For the first foray into generative design, Stamhuis took a recent design of a liquor store and put generative design to the test.
How we are collaborating with
the industry to bring generative design
Autodesk came together with
customers and researchers this summer at our Technology Center in
Toronto. Our objective? To explore the potential applications of
generative design for the architecture, engineering, and
construction (AEC) industry.
Get started with Generative
Design in Revit, available in Revit 2021 to all users with a
subscription to AEC Collections, as well as EBA customers.
Assign users through Autodesk Account and then access the
feature through the Manage tab in Revit. Single-product
subscribers running Revit 2021 can access and build on the code
through Dynamo for Revit and use it to create custom design
studies using Revit data and geometry.
