“Dreamcatcher is a goal-directed design (GDD) system that enables designers to input specific design objectives, including functional requirements, material type, manufacturability, performance criteria, and cost restrictions. Dreamcatcher interprets design intent from the objectives specified by the designer and uses the cloud to create thousands of valid design options that meet the designer’s criteria, recommending the best-performing versions for further consideration.” Source: Autodesk Research

In a collaboration between Simon Fraser University and Autodesk Research and funded by NSERC Engage, we bring together our collective expertise in HCI, user experience, information visualization, and design exploration to create an effective user experience for Autodesk’s Dreamcatcher project.
