Generative design habit 7: Design for right first time

Getting it right first time is not only important in physical manufacturing, but also in simulation as it is leaner and more efficient. Generative Design guarantees a highly fluent process, where the user can intervene and adapt the optimization model to find at least one final, optimal structure. These are characterized by organic shapes which …
