What is Generative Design?

Generative design, also known as topology optimization, is a process that determines the most efficient shape based on defined material, constraints and stresses. It takes modeling from computer-aided to computer-driven – with resulting forms that look very much like nature.

What’s unique about generative design?

With traditional design, you typically create multiple concepts, then evaluate and optimize one or more, based on your design goals. With generative design, you start with your design goals, and algorithms automatically generate optimized design options for achieving them. You can create multiple iterations of designs, identifying options to meet various goals (i.e. weight reduction). The process often results in organic forms similar to those seen in nature.

Unlock the power of generative design in Solid Edge

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, and also create highly customized designs well-suited for casting or high-resolution 3D printing. Solid Edge is unique in that it results in “ready-to-print” surface quality.

In this eBook, you’ll learn about:

  • Step-by-step how to create an optimized shape
  • Manufacturing options for your designs creating using this method
  • Powerful design capabilities in Solid Edge that you can take advantage of quickly and easily
