Design engineers are constantly challenged to come up with innovative designs that are cost-effective, using fewer resources. Generative design in Solid Edge, aided by powerful artificial intelligence software and the computing power of the cloud enables engineers to create, and simulate hundreds of material and design options.
With generative design, the designer needs to input the parameters such as material, permitted load, strength, and the target weight for the manufacturing process. Based on that the computer generates design, using the software and automation. It will compute a geometric solution that maintains structural integrity. Multiple weight, load, and constraint scenarios can be run simultaneously.
Once the designs are made, CAD engineers can select the optimum design that meets their requirements and explore further, to create lighter, and stronger components.
