Genoform Version 2.0

Ths version includes grasshopper components that are able to communicate with the external genoform (main) . You can create a generative designs by simply replacing your slider bars with genoform slider bars and by dragging in the genoform (grasshopper) component that establishes a communication link with the genoform (main).


Filters are provided to filter out unviable designs



Genoform allows you to filter out unviable solutions. You do not have to define optimisation criteria. In creative design, a good design is recognized only when it emerges. Genoform is based on emergence.

Thanks Sivam,

New genoform interface is so cool and easy to use. I love using genoform as you could chose variable parameters during design phase and then all design iterations could be explored Frame by Frame which makes fsciliates optimisation process.

Good work Sivam...keep it up!!!

Genform is now being used to create one off Jewellery. 

One Just One (a 3D printing + generative Design) project using genofom has been launched through Kickstarter.

Thanks Sivam. Unfortunately, I had no luck with this fix. I'm on Genoform, is this the lastest version?

We have not tried it on mac. On PC some times this sorts it out :

Control panel>User Accounts*>Change User Account Control settings>Set to Never Notify
*Make sure ‘View by’ up the top right of the control panel is set to show icons, not category.
Pls try it out.

Hello, I'm stuck on the same problem as some other people here. I am using Parallels on Mac with Windows 7 home premium and AutoDesk Inventor Pro 2013. I am getting the "No CAD detected" I've gone through the forums and tried most of the fixes, but nothing seems to help. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
