Join Danil Nagy for an in-depth discussion in this video Tools for optimization, part of Generative Design Foundations.
- Once we've designed a generative model, … we can connect it to an optimization algorithm … to automatically explore its design space … and find the best design solutions. … Now if you're working in Grasshopper, … the easiest way to get started with optimization … is to use its built in tool, Galapagos. … Galapagos is included with Grasshopper, … so there's nothing extra to install. … With its simple and clear user interface … and direct connection to Grasshopper, … Galapagos is a very useful tool for testing your models … quickly during the development process. … However, for more advanced work, … it also has some limitations. … Now if you're working in Dynamo, … Autodesk is currently developing a plugin called Refinery, … which can run optimizations on Dynamo models. … But right now, it's only available … to subscribers of their beta program. … A major limitation of both Galapagos and Refinery … is that they only work with their associated software. … But these days, it's common for computational designers …
