Generative design and insights in strategies for the development of innovative products with tailored mechanical and/or functional properties
Keywords:generative design, design methods, additive manufacturing, mechanical measurements, product design and development
Creative design methods should allow the extraction of novel wisdoms and favour their integration into many technological domains, thus leading to an innovative product. The current research reports some technical considerations on the role of generative design as a “collaborative partner” in supporting the ideation process through the development of design alternatives in agreement with the designer’s criteria.
A specific case study was considered and the role of the generative design method was stressed, also focusing on technical features and differences in terms of solutions for the given design problem. The possibility of selecting well defined manufacturing methods (e.g., traditional or advanced – additive manufacturing) was highlighted.
