Machine Research boosts designer productivity

Accelerate your design process by accessing related work through shape search, and by viewing, editing and collaborating in real time on any device.

Product designers are the lifeblood of the manufacturing industry: you design, we build. The two activities go hand-in-hand, but require distinctly different skillsets and areas of focus. However, learning from the past in order to do things more efficiently and productively in the future is something both disciplines can embrace.

The Problem

You’ve designed hundreds, maybe even thousands of products in the past. What you designed when you first began your career is likely very different than what you design now; you’ve gained a ton of practical experience and know-how in the interim, and now do these jobs better and more efficiently.

How much of that knowledge do you reuse? Probably most of the general concepts, but not much in terms of specific designs. Do you remember the overviews you designed on a particular part four years ago that happen to be very similar to your current project? Do you have a way of accessing that part to see what went into the design, the cost of manufacturing the part, the changes that needed to be made for manufacturability, etc.?
