Nothing these days is designed or manufactured without thousands of preliminary cycles of parametric modeling in which variables are continuously modified and explored. Using AI software and massive cloud data, thousands of design options can be quickly compared. As a result designers, engineers and scientists better understand a product and design options.
This approach has transformed the traditional manufacturing paradigm. Designers can now easily explore how renewable and non-toxic resources such as natural minerals, crystallization, and biomaterials might improve a design. And additive manufacturing, generative design, and other forms of biomimicry can be modelled as well. Heavy reliance on non-renewable resources and their associated environmental damage can be eliminated from the design and manufacturing process and product lifecycle. And engineerable living cells can be incorporated into static and environmentally sustainable materials to create new composites with special biological […]
