Introduction to Generative Design

In this course, we’ll set up, generate, and explore generative design outcomes and post process generative designs. Generative design is a new workflow that generates high-performing design alternatives with optimized geometry that's often times far removed from a traditional design. We’ll explore the basics of Autodesk® Fusion 360™ assemblies and geometry creation with a focus on obstacle geometry. We'll set up a generative design study and develop knowledge of advanced T-spline tools to post process a generative output. With the rapid expansion of various types of manufacturing—from additive, subtractive, and even hybrid approaches—the generative design workflow will give you the power to explore every avenue of a design.

After completing this course, you'll be able to

  • Explain generative design technology.
  • Create basic assemblies. 
  • Utilize generative design.
  • Explore generative design outcomes.
  • Finalize advanced designs.
  • Edit sculpted bodies using T-splines.
