Generative Design, Prototyping, and CNC Milling

When tasked with bringing prototyping in-house or building your own prototyping lab, you might find there is an overwhelming wealth of information to evaluate. From capabilities to costs, space requirements, and concerns over noise, vibration, waste, and energy efficiency, the ability to isolate and act on your operation’s specific needs can be complicated. This is […]

What is Generative Design?

In the past, an engineer would make a part or product by developing a drawing in CAD. The drawing would be the result of that engineer’s experience, imagination (creativity), and historical data (how similar parts have been made before). Generative design is optimization and problem solving based on a number of criteria defined by the […]
