GM and Autodesk are using generative design for vehicles of the future

GM and Autodesk are using generative design for vehicles of the future

The lighter the car, the less fuel it uses, the less carbon it emits and the more money the driver saves. Now to push the boundaries on its next generation of lightweighting, the automaker is teaming up with Autodesk to use a combination of generative design and additive manufacturing as key technologies to develop future cars and trucks, including its alternative propulsion and zero emission vehicles.
