Autodesk officially announced that generative design technology in Autodesk® Fusion 360™ is now available to educators and students at Cornell University. Please join Dan Banach on Feb 28th at 5:00 pm in Phillips 101 to learn about Autodesk Generative Design and how you can use it to create better designs. All are welcome!
Generative design in Fusion 360 is a design exploration tool that harnesses the computational power of the cloud and provides designers and engineers with multiple design options, editable CAD geometry, and the ability to influence designs with the use of manufacturing methods such as additive manufacturing or milling constraints. Users of generative design can take advantage of this technology to solve complex engineering problems, such as:
- consolidating parts by reducing the overall number of parts and components;
- reducing the weight of parts and components by using the least amount of material to make the part as effective as possible;
- increasing performance by designing stronger parts and components.
Explore how generative design can be used in the design and manufacture process.
Follow these three steps to get started.
- Go to Autodesk generative design page for more information on generative design and learning resources to help you get started.
- Sign into Autodesk Fusion 360 using your university-issued email address.
- Students and educators must use their university domain email address to access the Fusion 360 generative design workspace.
- If you already have a Fusion 360 account using a non-university email address, you will need to create a new account or update your email address within your current Autodesk account in order to access the Fusion 360 generative design workspace.
- If you are new to Autodesk Fusion 360, you can download it here for free.
- Register for a webinar. Learn more about the benefits of generative design and how to get started by attending a webinar led by an Autodesk Fusion 360 technical expert.
Autodesk is excited to bring generative design technology to Cornell University.
