Join Danil Nagy for an in-depth discussion in this video Objectives and constraints, part of Generative Design Foundations.
- Calculating a set of metrics … from our generative model allows us to tell the computer … the criteria by which to judge the design solutions. … To guide the computer, … we must also describe our priorities for these metrics, … which we do by setting each one … as either an objective or a constraint. … An objective represents a value … that we want to be as low or as high as possible. … This gives the computer a way … to understand the relative performance … of different design options. … If an objective is to be minimized, … a design with a lower value will always be considered better … than a design with a higher value. … A constraint, on the other hand, … has a specific target which must be met … for the design to be considered valid. … As long as the constraint is met, … the exact value doesn't matter … and all designs that meet the target … are considered equally good. … Objectives and constraints give us a nuanced way … to communicate our design goals and priorities … to the computer. …
