Explore what generative design is not. In particular, learn why generative design does not supplant the designer.
- [Narrator] I like to think of using generative design … tools as having an incredibly productive, eager, tireless … employee with zero life experience and no conscience. … It's like hiring a three year old with superhuman speed. … All that energy and speed is great but you as the designer … are still the only responsible person in the room. … You can't hand the keys over to a generative design … algorithm, at least not yet. … In practice, this often means a lot of effort … on your part as the designer. … Constraining the solution space to reflect constraints … implicit or obvious in a traditional design process. … Physics solvers like the kangaroo plug-in … are a good example. … You can't just specific the optimization goal, … you also need to tell the solver that the ground exists, … that there's gravity, that two physical objects … can't intersect with each other. … Generative design tools are also constantly pushing us … towards design goals and requirements … that can be easily quantified. …
