Session 1: The Myths and Realities of Generative Design
Recent advancements in Generative Design (GD) have broken new grounds and unleashed the power of Additive Manufacturing (AM), but is it as easy to adopt as it appears?
Can the software-proposed shapes be manufactured as-is, or does it need to be refined by an expert?
What is the gap between what the software offers and how the users prefer to work with it?
Simulation software industry veterans Joe Walsh and Dr. Andreas Vlahinos give a frank, honest assessment of GD in its current stage.
