Generative Design

The future of CAD

Generated Prodcuts

with one comment

Fluid Form has just launched a consumer product created by generative design technology.

This may be the beginnings of interesting possibilities. The rings were designed by Michal Piasecki and Krystian Kwieciński who

used artificial selection in genetic algorithms to unleash a population of ring designs. From this first generation Michal and Krystian selected the most appealing individuals, which passed on attributes to the next generation. Iterating this evolutionary process with parametric modelling techniques they guided the ring’s evolution step-by-step towards the silver ring’s final shape. Thus Darwinean “Survival-of-the-Fittest” in nature becomes “Survival-of-the-Most-Aesthetic” in jewelry design.

More info on how it was made

Lionel Dean an avanguard  Britisher designer also launched generated jewelery manufactured using direct laser sintering technology. One hundred designs were produced.

Generative Design Technology is now beginning to be used for creating one offs – which have special value, specially in jewelery. The creation of one offs or limited edition products  manufactured using rapid manufacturing technologies  may lead to interesting consumer applications.
