Designing "for 3D printing" requires specific skills in the field. Traditional CAD design is often not enough, or needs some tricks useful for the right finalization of the design.
We must learn to prevent errors in the printing phase, paying attention to surfaces, angles and overhangs and design details.
An in-depth knowledge of additive manufacturing technologies reduces time and costs, even in the early stages of design.
What is generative design?
Generative design mimics nature’s evolutionary approach to design. Designers or engineers input design goals into generative design software, along with parameters such as materials, manufacturing methods, and cost constraints. Unlike topology optimization, the software explores all the possible permutations of a solution, quickly generating design alternatives. It tests and learns from each iteration what works and what doesn’t.
Quickly generate high-performing design alternatives—many that you’d never think of on your own—from a single idea. With generative design, there is no single solution; instead, there are potentially thousands of great solutions. You choose the design that best fits your needs.
Benefits of generative design
Explore a wider range of design options
In the time you can create one idea, a computer can generate thousands, along with the data to prove which designs perform best.
Make impossible designs possible
Generative design lets you create optimized complex shapes and internal lattices. Some of these forms are impossible to make with traditional manufacturing methods. Instead, they're built using new additive manufacturing methods.
Optimize for materials and manufacturing methods
Set goals and parameters, and the software will create high-performing design options based on those constraints. The software resolves conflicting design constraints so you can focus on innovating.
