Field-Driven Design

Manipulate and morph designs using mathematical fields

The Challenge

In conventional design processes meshes, geometries or patterns are manually created and adapted to fit the objectives of the design. The time-intensive manual work needs to be repeated even when small design changes are needed.

  • The designer might not know how the design can be improved for objectives such as better manufacturability or following simulation results.
  • In most cases, this involves a high manual effort to optimize the design for specific values
  • No automatic adaption of a design to a value distribution

Our Approach

Adapt design features in fully algorithmic processes built on fields from self-defined over image based to simulation result based.

1

DESIGN

Create an original design

2

FIELD DEFINITION

Generate a mathematical field from a value distribution, e.g. stress values

3

FIELD EVALUATION

Evaluate the field to obtain the field data for the design, e.g. stress values for points in a pattern

4

DESIGN MANIPULATION

Modify, attract or repel the design with the field data, e.g. moving the nodes according to stress values

Your Value

Automatically create designs you didn’t know were possible and which are perfectly adapted to the fields that drive and influence your design.

  • Full automation of the optimization of designs for specific values
  • No manual adaptations for changing parameters
  • Creating better designs that exceed the designers imagination
