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.

A great course with excellent resources.
Good job, very resourceful
Resourceful material and great flow.
superb!!!!
Generative design completely changes the way we create. In a way, It emulates how nature design things.
Great intro to generative design
An excellent and detailed look at generative design. Take note, The time of 2hrs and 45mins just means how much content there is. This took me many many hours to complete but is worth it.
Good Introduction to generative design.
Great intro course!
