Generative computer-aided design is typically compared to how nature creates. When a tree grows, it will naturally find the strongest footing and the best path toward sunlight. The tree doesn’t grow unnecessary limbs; it is efficient in the way it expands outward. Generative design operates in the same way. Engineers designate their material and the constraint design points, and the generative CAD software automatically creates a part that meets the strength and load criteria in the most efficient design possible. The next step for generative design is to introduce AI and automation to the process. Colin Swearingen is a design solution consultant for Dassault Systemes. He discusses how generative design is being used by engineers today and how the tool is evolving into cognitive augmented design.
