The generative design process explores manufacturing-ready outcomes earlier in your production process, optimized for cost, material, and different manufacturing techniques, so you can get to market faster.
Generative design in Fusion 360 gives you the ability to select multiple manufacturing methods to quickly explore numerous solutions for your design and engineering challenges.
Improve design freedom and bring your innovations to the front. Build better quality products in less time while reducing material waste.
Take advantage of your shop-floor production capabilities by improving consistency across your 2.5-axis, 3-axis, or 5-axis machines.
Enable complex shapes, intricate sections, and greater mechanical properties while combining additive, subtractive, and generative design for reduced production costs.
Optimize the effectiveness of your high-volume injection molding with generative design, achieving a higher production rate with reduced cycle times.
See what the Harvard Business Review has to say about:
Helping manufacturers do more, better, and with less.
Quickly identify solutions to minimize mass and material use while maintaining performance standards, meeting design goals, and respecting engineering constraints.
Evaluate multiple manufacturing methods using generative design and discover solutions to improve and optimize product durability and eliminate areas of weakness.
Explore a range of design solutions that allow you to consolidate multiple components into solid parts, reducing assembly costs and simplifying your supply chain.
Meet your sustainability goals by using generative design to lightweight your products, creating less production waste and helping you select more sustainable materials.
