Live Parts™ is an experimental generative design technology that applies morphogenetic principles and advanced simulation to shape strong, lightweight parts. Unlike with topology optimization, a subtractive approach to generative design, no pre-existing designs or knowledge of design for additive manufacturing is needed. Inspired by nature, Live Parts objects begin as a small collection of seed cells that grow like plants and bones in a dynamic, interactive environment, constantly adapting in real-time to changing forces and other factors. Users can even model pre-defined Transitional Dynamic Forces that affect the Live Part object in real-time as it grows over time. The resulting parts are geometrically complex and auto-generated from from scratch in minutes.
