Description

Description

Traditionally CAD and CAE have mostly been used for documenting designs and providing feedback on how they perform in operation. Improved tools, expanded computing power, and new manufacturing technology are now opening up new possibilities for computational design and engineering, where CAD and CAE are used to actually generate part geometry directly. These tools help engineers explore an array of design strategies and create lighter, stronger, or more-efficient parts by driving the design with functional goals, not just a handful of dimensions on a sketch. This course will provide some context for optimization tools as they exist today and introduce several new tools aimed at this goal-driven design concept.
