Designing with Artificial Intelligence
This tutorial aims to establish a tailored workflow that maximizes the potential of AI as a collaborative creative partner. It will cover two distinct topics. Firstly, we’ll explore designing while considering contextual factors, employing Autodesk’s Forma. Then, in the subsequent section, we’ll delve into utilizing Text to Image and Image to 3D techniques to cultivate aesthetic concepts.
Autodesk Forma (formerly Spacemaker) helps planning and design teams deliver projects digitally from day one. Use conceptual design capabilities, predictive analytics, and automations to make solid, sustainable, foundations for your projects. (https://www.autodesk.com/products/forma/) Forma enables to run Daylight potential analysis | Area analysis | Microclimate analysis | Noise analysis | Rapid Operational Energy analysis | Sun hours analysis | Wind analysis. (https://damassets.autodesk.net/content/dam/autodesk/www/products/autodesk-forma/fy24/overview/forma-sustainability-10-03.pdf)
First we set our location for the project
Import the context elements
Back to the map
Hit the three dots and place in Canvas
Repeat for all ordered items
We will now choose our terrain (site)
Create the site limits
Importing the project
The project can be edited and oriented accordingly to the site by double clicking
You can then edit (move, rotate, scale) remove parts or add some elements.
Once done you can exit to validate
Running context analysis
Then run context’s analysis on the entire area or just on the project area
Sun analysis (21st of December)
Whenever the analysis is done it is visible by clicking this
Each result is stored here:
Daylight potential …by clicking on the cross, it’s possible to have a local value
Plant some trees and analyse the impact of green protection
Height and density can be adjusted
Recalculating wind zones
By creating an alternative version of the project it’s possible to compare several hypothesis and pick the best one.
It’s possible to explore add-ons and install some of them
Choose the preferred one, agree on conditions and add
The Testfit Parking allows to sketch a parking area easily
The entrance can be set by moving this little dot
The ElvolveLab Veras opens the possibilities of AI renderings from the sketch
Open up the popup window and choose style and size after having signed up
There, but it did not understand trees as trees
Changing the prompt can certainly give different results.
Let’s try to replace our cylinder trees by trees
Ok why not
To change the point of view, closing and reopening the Veras Window is needed.
Close to be ok.
