Generative Design for Industrial Applications
The foundation of engineering design is exploration and iteration. Design is rarely a perfectly linear and straightforward process. In this course, we explore a design for a traditional manufacturing method and use generative design to create the perfect iteration of it. From that point, we'll reverse engineer the generative design and recreate it for a traditional manufacturing method and explore the option of fabricating the generative version to weigh the pros and cons of each.
After this lesson, you'll be able to:
- Describe the reverse engineering design process and workflow in Fusion 360.
- Summarize the trends that are influencing the design industry.
- Demonstrate knowledge and skills in more advanced Fusion 360 CAD and generative design skills.

Instructor guide Generative Design for Industrial Applications Instructor's guide
Working with an Initial Design Take a design and identifying an optimal manufacturing method as well as the addition and creation of features for a specific manufacturing method.
Defining a Generative Setup and Reviewing Outcomes Overview the final setup of a generative design study, solving it and the creation of a generative design outcome.
Reverse Engineering a Generative Design Using the generative design to make informed decisions about a design path and ultimately creating a new generative inspired design.
Reviewing and Refining a Design Compare the three simulation study results and capture any pertinent design data that needs to be adjusted for a final design.
