What is generative design software?

Generative design is a 3D CAD capability that uses AI to autonomously create optimal designs from a set of system design requirements. Engineers can interactively specify their requirements and goals, including preferred materials and manufacturing processes—and the generative engine will automatically produce a manufacture-ready design as a starting point or as a final solution. As a result, engineers can interact with the technology to create superior designs and drive product innovation more quickly.

Generative Design for Traditional Manufacturing

Think generative design is only for additive manufacturing? Think again! Generative design can be applied to parts that are machined, cast or forged. You can use generative design to optimize legacy parts, using your existing manufacturing process.
