Generative Design for the Additive Manufacturing Process

Jennifer Milne  (Product Manager, Formlabs)

Location: 209B

Date: Wednesday, February 12

Time: 4:05 pm - 5:00 pm

Track: 3D Printing Innovation Summit: Choosing the Right Tools & Materials to Support Your Design Strategy

The way everyday items are made is being reimagined through a process called generative design, which enables engineers to create thousands of design options by simply defining their design problems. As with any new technology, however, there's often some confusion about what exactly the technology is, and what it isn't. This session will examine real-world applications for generative design. Topics covered include:

• The advantages of generative design
• Cost savings
• Acceleration of the design process
• Accessing software-based design
• Does generative design eliminate the need for human involvement?
