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.

Two errors: 1) The Generative Design Loads and Costraints Lesson erroneously uses structural constraints when structural loads is required. 2) the Steel and Titanium materials cannot be used in the generative solution, at least in the latest version of Fusion 360.
There is no Generative design workspace in my Fusion software. Can someone help me.
Easier to understand the concept of generative design and course is really helpful to amateur designers.
