      A 30-day free trial is available for Fusion 360 here.
      The Generative Design Extension is available as a 7-day trial here.

      Generative design leverages artificial intelligence and machine learning to generate multiple manufacturing outcomes that meet your design constraints while reducing weight, improving performance, and consolidating parts.

      Topology optimization begins with a human-designed CAD model concept with loads and constraints applied based on the design constraints. Topology optimization returns only one optimized concept for evaluation based on the human-designed model. There is no automated ideation. Lastly, it returns to the user an optimized mesh design result that must be rebuilt in a CAD system that is intended for downstream use.

      Autodesk Fusion 360 Generative Design Extension begins with hold out areas, preserved areas, loads, and design constraints based on the project requirements.

      Artificial intelligence generates the topological outcomes that are created for evaluation based design and manufacturing requirements. The Generative Design Extension in Fusion 360 returns to the user a CAD ready geometry model that can be edited in any system.
