SolidWorks and EvoShape

The aim of this project was to produce a version of EvoShape as an addin for the SolidWorks 3D Cad software. The project was successfully completed within time and budget.


EvoShape is an innovative new CAD tool that generates and evolves original styling concepts. Designers and consumers alike can create novel, aesthetically appealing and inspirational shapes in just a few minutes.

Genetic data-structures and simulated procreation are employed to create a highly intuitive concept - new shapes can be bred simply by selecting or scoring objects from successive populations.

EvoShape was developed by Ian Graham at Loughborough University in collaboration with UK design businesses.
