What is Generative Design?

Generative design in Solid Edge integrates advanced topology optimization within the Solid Edge 3D modeling toolkit, helping designers to create lighter components, minimize material waste in downstream manufacturing. Generative design produces an organic, reduced-mass geometric solution of a specific material optimized within a defined space, accounting for permissible loads and constraints.

These highly customized designs are well-suited for casting or high-resolution 3D printing, or they can be modified for traditional manufacturing. Generative design in Solid Edge is unique in that it results in “ready-to-print” surface quality.

In this eBook, you’ll learn:

  • What generative design is, and how it is different
  • The step-by-step process for creating an optimized shape
  • Manufacturing options for generative designs
  • How Solid Edge supports this cutting edge technology
