Generative Design

Optimized to Your Specific Designs

Are you seeking to build an entirely new design, free of the baggage of legacy designs? If so, our Generative Design consulting may be the solution. Using advanced software, our additive-manufacturing experience, and expertise, a wide variety of generative designs—built literally from the ground-up—can be provided. We will unlock the full power of additive manufacturing to deliver the best possible combination of price and performance. 


Generative design describes the process of feeding specific parameters into advanced software and allowing the software to algorithmically create design options based on those inputs. This operation optimizes for any number of performance characteristics such as weight, strength, or a target density. This is how generative gets its name; the design software literally generates the designs from the ground up. Generative design can also be described as parametric design, referencing the parameters input into the software.
While the software can create a wide variety of concepts, these designs are often extraordinarily complex, and sometimes entirely outside the bounds of practical manufacturability. This is where 3Diligent's expertise truly kicks in. 3Diligent’s Design Consulting goes beyond simply being able to create a wide variety of prospective design options, we apply practical knowledge of parts manufacturing across a wide variety of technologies to algorithm-generated designs and turn them into a part optimized for manufacture with a specific process and material. Often the manufacturing process of choice is one of our various additive-manufacturing technologies and CNC machining and casting can also be viable options.
