What is Generative Design?
Generative design is a design exploration process. Designers or engineers input design goals into the generative design software, along with parameters such as performance or spatial requirements, materials, manufacturing methods, and cost constraints. The software explores all the possible permutations of a solution, quickly generating design alternatives. It tests and learns from each iteration what works and what doesn’t.
Generative Design for Product Design and Manufacturing
Helps you explore more CAD-ready design options that are optimized for cost, material, and production method.
Generative Design for Architecture, Engineering & Construction
Helps you explore solutions by rapidly testing, analyzing, and evaluating iterations for building design challenges.
