☑ Optimize products for minimal mass with goal driven generative design
Generative Design is a radical departure from conventional design practices and is by definition the creation of shapes decided by a set of rules, or in other words, software algorithms.
In essence the 3D CAD designer is no longer the primary creator, taking the position of a “problem framer” specifying up front design goals such as design space, constraints and keep out areas. The computer software then decides where material should be removed. Constraints define, then decide the structural results by generating an optimized part that look eerily similar to creations found in nature. The potential benefits are striking. This class will teach you how to get started with Topology Optimization.

The instructor gave detailed explanations on the subject matter and provides examples that are useful for learning
This course was much more extensive and useful. Having done something similar for an internship at Siemens PLM documenting examples of topology optimization within NX, this course makes me look back and see how much more I could have achieved. It was a great learning experience and it is a great tool to visualize Mechanical Engineering concepts outside of extensive technical jargon. This tool integrated with classroom learning can help students immensely.
One of the most qualified professional giving classes here. Perfect didactic, smooth explanations, excellent slides.
Demasiados videos en los que no se explica nada. Muchas repeticiones. Sin embargo, al final acabas entendiendo mucho del diseño generativo y con bastante experiencia en los resultados. De todas maneras, se podrían reducir los videos a la mitad y se seguiría contando lo mismo.
Still can't figure out if Generative design is an engineering software or just an intuitive design helper. most cases shown - especially this chapter of a bracket will not explain why I need to improve something that is optimized and why I use engineering constrained on a something that looks like a statute, and not as the actual recommended result. What Do I need it for if I can't analyze the quality of the results?
Estou obtendo conceitos que irão me permitir aprofundar nos estudos relacionados a design generativo/optimização topológica. Entretanto, gostaria de aplicar processo de fabricação para obter a simulação ideal para determinado produto.
This course is wonderful with a step by step process with very very detail and clear explanations for each single process in the topology optimization in Solid Edge Software.
It's a good course but I feel that the tutor could emphasize more upon the physical significance of the functions.
Conocía el diseño generativo con Rhino y Grasshopper, pero no sabía que con Solid Edge era tan sencillo y potente.
The experience of this program was good although I took a long time as I was implementing it on my solid edge software. The mentor was teaching superbly nice and I would surely take some more courses in the future!
Excelente, con esta herramienta, quedan de lado los modelos rígidos y cuadriculados para dar paso a eficiencia y eficacia que se necesitan en los modelos actuales al tener tanta competitividad en el mundo globalizado. Muchas gracias.
Because the software seems very intuitive and aligned with how we commonly explore and establish direction in design optimization. I have two decades of product design background in the automotive and cleantech industries.
As a senior manufacturing engineering student, I find the tutorials by John and Solid edge Generative Modeling program very useful. Thank you.
I have started to understand the basics of Generative Design clearly due to the simple and emphatic approach of the course so far.
Basically an infomercial for Solid Edge. Hard to complain since it's free, but to call it a 'course' seems rather generous.
