Generative Design for Additive Manufacturing
Expand your skillset to stay at forefront of industry trends. Dive into the common applications of generative design—additive manufacturing or 3D printing, as it’s also known. Learn the basics of geometry creation and get a deeper understanding of generative design, its parameters, and how to work with results specifically aimed at making a 3D printed metal part. Understand the generative workflow by exploring Fusion 360 tools and combining them with the creative process of turning an idea into a 3D model. Learn how to apply the generative design thinking process to define a study.
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.

What is Generative Design? With generative design it is important to understand the mindset needed to set up a generative design study and control the areas where it can and can’t explore.
Defining a Generative Setup Expand into a generative design study utilizing the preserve and obstacle regions created in the prior week to explore the various options and settings which will drive our generative outcomes.
Working with Generative Design Outcomes Explore the process of viewing outcomes, selecting an appropriate iteration, and creating a design that can be further manipulated in Fusion 360.
Post Process a Generative Design for Additive Manufacturing Explore how to work with a generative design outcome in Fusion 360.
Course challenge Challenge assignments are ungraded and provide you an opportunity to demonstrate your skills and innovate your own solution.
