Generative Design for Part Consolidation
Designing a product is only part of the process. Now, can that product be manufactured? In many cases the end product is made up of an assembly of different pieces to simplify manufacturing. With generative design and additive manufacturing, we can now take a different approach to the process of designing and producing complex products by ultimately reducing the number of parts and steps in an assembly while optimizing a design for strength and weight reduction.
After this lesson, you'll be able to:
- Inspect a multi-component assembly.
- Identify manufacturing methods.
- Practice how to reverse engineer for design intent.
- Create a Generative Design Outcome
- Revise a design for production.

Instructor guide Generative Design for Part Consolidation Instructor's guide
Review and Analyze a Complex Assembly Cover the exploration of a complex design created as an assembly of multiple components to identify improvements and compile information to build a generative design.
Set up a Generative Study Set up an unrestricted generative design study for multiple materials.
Select and Post Process an Outcome to Finalize a Design Focus on the post process tools needed after a generative outcome is created.
Beneficial Knowledge for Working with Generative Designs Cover additional tools that benefit Generative Designs, but don’t apply to every case.
Practice exercises Practice exercises to measure skills on the topics covered in this course.
