This is so fascinating. How could one get started with learning generative design?
I am also trying to get some software in my hands to do this. Fusion 360 ultimate has a generative design feature, but it is no free. Cortime in solidworks is free for students and has some great tutorials so far. Netfabb, Inspire, and onshape has also mentoned generative features, so you should check them out.
If you find any useful information, please share with us :)
What algorithms are being used for generative design?
Airbus has used an algorithm based on the growth patterns of slime mold and another algorithm based on the grid structures of mamal bone growth, which are dense at points of stress but lighter everywhere else.
Do you know another algorithm and how easy is to be implemented in matlab?
