Generative design is so unique. It allows us to explore many different design options we wouldn't have been able to explore with traditional methods.
- Kevin Quinn Director, General Motors

Native, Editiable Results

Avoid lengthy, manual import-export processes. Choose your outcome and start editing in your modelling environment immediately.

Things like generative design allow us to implement, execute and manufacture in a completely different fashion than we're thinking today.
- Frank DeSantis VP, Black & Decker

Cloud Solve

Simultaneously solve for various design outcomes, freeing up your time to focus on other tasks.

We don't have to spend months & years guessing & simulating what we think the right solution is. We look at a whole range of solutions, telling us if our idea is feasible right from the beginning.
- Matt Otto R & D Engineer, Crown Equipment


Make the right decisions early in the design process by striking the right balance between performance and cost. Estimate your manufacturing cost, powered by aPriori, for each of the generated design outcomes, based upon production volume requirements.
