Generative Design for Performance and Weight Reduction

Provided by: Coursera

There are many considerations and factors that play a part in designing a new product. Cost is usually a big one, but sometimes there are other factors. Some instances, making a part as light as possible can have a big effect on performance. In other cases, the strength or stiffness of a part, such as a motor mount, is more critical than its mass. Generative design allows us the ability to solve for both problems at the same time and make informed design decisions without the sacrifice.

Course Objectives:

  • To explore how generative design can be applied to motorcycle parts to help reduce mass while also increasing performance.

Recommended Background

  • Recommended for design engineers & professionals involved in the designing process
