Generative Design for Additive Manufacturing
This course introduces you to one of the more common applications of generative design: Additive Manufacturing or 3D printing as it’s also known. In this course, we explore the basics of geometry creation and the mindset shift needed to build a generative design—a deeper understanding of generative design, its parameters, and how to work with the results specifically aimed at making a 3D printed metal part. We develop insightful understanding of the generative workflow by exploring Autodesk® Fusion 360™ tools and combining them with the creative process of taking an idea to a 3D model. We'll learn how to focus on where a design is and isn’t and apply the generative design thinking process to define a study as we take a deeper dive into Fusion 360.
After this course, you'll be able to:
- Explain the CAD design process as applied to generative design.
- Summarize the mindset for generative design.
- Demonstrate knowledge and skills in more advanced Fusion 360 CAD workflows.
