In this video, learn two optimization tools that integrate with industry-standard parametric and computational design tools. Learning these tools is crucial for implementing generative design within existing design workflows.
- To guide the optimization algorithm, … we need to provide a set of metrics. … These metrics describe our design goals to the algorithm. … To calculate these metrics, … we can use computer simulation tools … which evaluate the performance of our design models … based on different criteria. … Traditionally, each type of simulation … required its own specialized software, … for example, Abaqus, Nastran, and Ansys … for structural analysis or Radiance … and DAYSIM for daylight analysis. … Because all these tools existed … in separate software packages … and required direct human input … and user interaction to make them work, … they were difficult or impossible to integrate … within the automated workflows … required by generative design. … So with the growing popularity … of visual programming languages, … such as Grasshopper and Dynamo, … many simulation tools are now being developed, … not as stand-alone software, … but as plug-ins which can be incorporated … directly within the generative model. …
