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 …


Generative design habit 6: Design for manufacturability

Despite the design freedom of AM, there are many things to take into account when designing a part for this technology. Manufacturing parts accurately requires certain design aspects. If they are not properly considered, there is a high risk of errors during manufacturing, which can be costly, as each production run in AM is quite …


Generative design habit 5: Design for sustainability

Preserving nature’s resources is one of the big issues of our time. So, in every level of product design, we aim for less material consumption and lower emissions throughout the complete product’s lifecycle. When the product is more lightweight these goals can be achieved. Generative Design can be of huge support for this, as its …


Series on Generative Design – What is Generative Design?

Generative Design at a Glance Part geometries optimized for their requirements are of high interest in product design. Historically, while this could be achieved after several weeks of work with topology optimization, nowadays Generative Design, which is a more versatile tool, offers powerful features for optimization in a much shorter time-frame. This is driven by …


MSC Apex makes hexahedral meshes practical and cuts the entire workflow time in half

Lacking a productive tool for taking advantage of hex mesh in product development missions, engineers reviewed and benchmarked MSC Apex versus their legacy workflow and tools, and found quite a few benefits from using the new workflow. Northrop Grumman Mission Systems specializes in the development of military radar systems and sensors for aerospace. These technologies …


Introduction to MSC Apex Generative Design 2020

MSC Apex Generative Design 2020 now builds upon the MSC Apex Framework as its user interface. The intuitive and versatile functions of this modern CAE environment significantly simplify and accelerate model setup and do not require intensive training or advanced knowledge. Existing geometries can be imported and adapted with the extensive CAD manipulation functions. Based …
