Generative Design is a radical departure from conventional design practices and is by definition the creation of shapes decided by a set of rules, or in other words, software algorithms.
In essence the 3D CAD designer is no longer the primary creator, taking the position of a “problem framer” specifying up front design goals such as design space, constraints and keep out areas. The computer software then decides where material should be removed. Constraints define, then decide the structural results by generating an optimized part that look eerily similar to creations found in nature. The potential benefits are striking. This class will teach you how to get started with Topology Optimization.

Mechanical Engineering and 3D Design
John Devitry a Research Fellow at the Center of Space Engineering - Utah State University 2015 - 2019. From 2004 – 2015 John taught the introductory classes for Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at USU while also working as the CAD Administrator at Space Dynamics Laboratory – the research arm of USU.
Over the years John has developed a unique and compelling approach to teaching mechanical engineering and 3D design, introducing the concept of Conceptual Design Blending as a way to facilitate creative thinking with engineering graphics students.
Earlier is his career John worked for 3D Systems, promoting rapid prototyping and rapid tooling technologies visiting hundreds of leading design and manufacturing companies around the world. He holds 3 patents developing the product from concept to market, selling the patent rights to independent investors. John enjoys writing and has published 3 articles in BYU Studies. Education: 1986 – 1990 Brigham Young University Provo, UT. Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering
absolutely, it should be much more technical
i feel i'm learning a new thing
yes feels so good till now , as I came to know the basics and this was presented beautifully
The course is awesome
Excelente elección. Gracias por compartir.
This course was much more extensive and useful. Having done something similar for an internship at Siemens PLM documenting examples of topology optimization within NX, this course makes me look back and see how much more I could have achieved. It was a great learning experience and it is a great tool to visualize Mechanical Engineering concepts outside of extensive technical jargon. This tool integrated with classroom learning can help students immensely.
I got an understanding of what 3D generative modeling can do when designing parts.
