This e-book from Symetri looks at steel connections from a fresh perspective. It proposes that structural steel connections are more than simply a matter of connecting beams to beams, and beams to columns. They should represent not just physical and functional perfection, but also how construction professionals connect with each other.Learn more
Generative Design Evolution to Revolution
Generative design is a design exploration process. The software explores all the possible permutations of a solution, quickly generating design alternatives. It tests and learns from each iteration what works and what doesn’t.
Designers or engineers input design goals into the generative design software, along with parameters such as performance or spatial requirements, materials, manufacturing methods, and cost constraints.

Explore a wider range of design options
In the time you can create one idea, a computer can generate thousands, along with the data to prove which designs perform best.
Make impossible designs possible
Generative design lets you create optimized complex shapes and internal lattices. Some of these forms are impossible to make with traditional manufacturing methods. Instead, they're built using new additive manufacturing methods.
Optimise for materials and manufacturing methods
Set goals and parameters and the software will create high-performing design options based on those constraints. The software resolves conflicting design constraints so you can focus on innovating.
Generative design in the AEC sector is developing technology for solving complex design tasks ranging from floor layouts and site optimisation, conceptual massing through to façade engineering, and individual component design. The uses for generative design in the AEC sector are endless, many new techniques and workflows are being innovated daily to solve complex problems.

Presented by Lawrence Hooker, Technical Consultant at Symetri.
Minimize mass and material use while maintaining high-performance standards and engineering constraints.
Use generative design to help improve and optimize product durability and eliminate areas of weakness.
Consolidate multiple components into solid parts to maximize the potential of additive manufacturing.
Generative design can help you meet your sustainability goals by light-weighting your products, producing less production waste and helping you choose more sustainable materials.
