The upcoming trend of designing tools with machine learning capabilities is contributing to the growth of the studied market. Significant investments made in 2019, aimed at enabling designers to reduce the number of errors, thereby saving considerable time, should yield results in the future.
New York, June 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Reportlinker.com announces the publication of the report “Generative Design Market – Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 – 2026)” – https: // www .reportlinker .com / p06079813 /? utm_source = GNW
– Due to the increasing demand for advanced manufacturing with complex designs, and the need to downsize while improving automotive performance, automakers are compelling to increase their investment in R&D and embrace generative design.
– Companies such as Airbus, Black & Decker, Under Armor and other major companies are embracing generative design as a trend shaping the future of the engineering industry. It allows engineers to leave the reins to their CAD software to naturally find the best solutions to a given set of constraints. It increases the imagination of the engineer.
– Generative design is at an early stage of development, which means early adopters may face specific challenges. For example, precisely defining a design problem in computable terms, which generative design software must solve, will involve a steep learning curve. Engineers inexperienced in revealing the design problem as a set of parameters may end up with loosely defined structural stresses or loads, which will ultimately lead to design failure.
– There are over 30,000 parts in an average car and creating all of these parts and then putting them together requires an incredibly complex supply chain and manufacturing capabilities. However, General Motors and San Francisco-based software company Autodesk have a plan to change the way cars are designed, reducing the number of auto parts that go into each car, while also making the cars lighter. and more solid.
– Another point to consider with generative design is that effective designs cannot always be manufactured efficiently. For example, in a Renishaw case study, engineers topologically optimized a suspension crank. However, they did not take into account the manufacturability of the optimized part. This resulted in a design that required a lot of media to print, whereas it is good practice to design parts with the least amount of media needed. Such cases are expected to have a negative impact on the market.
– However, generative design is used to help address the risks associated with COVID-19. For example, Digital Blue Foam is developing a tool to help address the risks associated with the use and occupancy of indoor spaces due to COVID-19. Covid Space Planner analyzes factors such as total occupancy and proximity, airflow and ventilation, and duration of activity in the space. Based on these factors, the tool applies the generative design capabilities of Digital Blue Foam to recommend spatial planning strategies, such as the location of entry points, work areas, furniture placement, and renovations, to mitigate the risk.
Main market trends
The automobile will hold an important
– The growing trend of light vehicles has generated a demand for generative design technology. In 2019, the Volkswagen Group unveiled a vintage VW Microbus, which is modernized with several redesigned components produced by generative design technology. VW is promoting this vehicle to highlight technologies that they believe will be important for the future of automotive design and manufacturing, especially when it comes to the production of electric vehicles. Autodesk has partnered with VW’s California Engineering and Innovation Center (IECC) on this project to maximize strength while minimizing weight. Generative design has been deployed to produce lighter parts by reducing mass and material usage while maintaining high performance standards and engineering constraints.
– Additionally, in January 2020, electric vehicle company Arcimoto Inc announced that it was working with XponentialWorks and ParaMatters to additively design and manufacture lightweight components for its Fun Utility Vehicle (FUV). By deploying ParaMatters’ AI-based generative design software, several elements are redesigned to generate alternative parts that exhibit many of the same performance characteristics but at a lighter weight.
– Weight reduction has become a key concern for the efficiency of electric vehicles, because the less an automobile weighs, the less energy it takes to propel itself on the road. More efficient power consumption equates to greater range per charge, which is one of the most important considerations for consumers when evaluating electric vehicles.
– According to Autodesk, General Motors used generative design earlier in 2019, in a proof of concept project to develop a lightweight seat support prototype for its electric cars of the future. with such demand for lightweight parts in the automotive industry, the demand for generative design is expected to increase significantly.
Europe will experience a significant growth rate
– The European automotive sector has achieved an important position in the global industry. It has achieved record sales, and as a major employer and source of considerable subsidies, it is an integral part of European society.
– With the presence of several global automotive OEMs, Europe has implemented 3D printing technology on a large scale for design formulation and R&D applications in the automotive industry. Major automotive leaders such as Mercedes, Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Volkswagen and many more have created a potential space for 3D technology and printers in the European market. BMW Group has deployed 3D printing technology over the past 25 years for the design of various auto parts, and in 2018 it printed around 200,000 3D components, 42% more than in previous years.
– In April 2019, AUDI AG, a German automobile manufacturer, implemented polymer-based 3D printing technology for its production line at the plant in Bollinger Hofe, Germany. Such adoption cases are plentiful, due to improved capabilities of manufacturers and less reliance on the supply chain for critical components that can lead to failure. According to Sculpteo, a 3D printing company, the top priorities of Europeans using 3D printing are to drive product development and offer personalized products and limited series.
– In addition, the region is experiencing growth in sales of electric vehicles. Sales of electric vehicles are on the rise in Europe while sales of diesel vehicles continue their downward trend. Nearly 200,000 all-electric vehicles were sold in the European Union from January to the end of September 2019, including 73,000 in the third quarter against only 32,000 in the same period the previous year. The increase in BEV registrations was most notable in Scandinavian countries such as Denmark, which saw its BEV sales quadruple, and Sweden and Finland, which tripled, followed by Poland, Belgium and from Greece. Additional modifications to electric vehicles, such as increasing battery life, reducing vehicle weight, would require generative design software.
– In addition to the automotive sector, the region is experiencing demand from the manufacturing industry. The growing demand for additive manufacturing and 3D printing in the region is expected to increase the generative design market.
– To help manufacturers improve the skills of their workforce, the French government has entrusted the AIF with setting up a benchmark of skills in additive manufacturing and training at the national level. In this context, Cetim, in partnership with Cetim-Certec, its associated center, has already started to develop a complete training program dedicated to additive manufacturing, which covers the entire value chain.
– In addition, the significant outbreak of COVID-19 in the region, affecting more than 120,000 people in the region, according to Worldometers in June 2020, has significantly boosted the 3D printing market in the region. With the increase in demand for 3D printing, especially in the healthcare industry for manufacturing ventilators, the need for generative design has grown.
The generative design market appears to be moderately fragmented. The presence of several companies, including Altair Engineering Inc. and ANSYS Inc., makes the competitive environment quite intense. Factors such as the growing demand from the automotive industry and the availability of a trial or free version of generative design will provide tremendous growth opportunities for generative design manufacturers. The major companies covered in this report are Autodesk Inc., Dassault SystÃ¨mes SE, and Desktop Metal Inc.
– April 2020- Autodesk Inc. announced the acquisition of a minority stake in Aurigo Software, a Bengaluru-based company that provides cloud-based software to plan, build and maintain fixed assets and infrastructure projects. The merger would be able to provide owners of infrastructure projects with a single end-to-end technology platform for infrastructure design, procurement and operation.
– August 2020 – Architectural firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel has launched ACPVLab, a research and development unit that will focus on using generative design to develop bespoke interiors. ACPVLab has developed a âhandcraftedâ computer script that will allow architects and interior designers to instantly explore thousands of different layout permutations.
– May 2020 – Australian real estate intelligence platform Archistar, which combines architectural design and artificial intelligence to inform real estate decision making, closed a $ 6 million Series A financing round led by AirTree to accelerate its international growth and expand its product and engineering team.
