Power of the Small Design

Always been intrigued by the power of the very small.     There are big advantages of power and manipulation. Whether in the body or in space.   Involvement of Autodesk is interesting.

Insect-Like Lander Could Be the Future of Space Exploration 
In CNet   By Amanda Kooser

The U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Jet Propulsion Laboratory partnered with Autodesk to create a new landing craft using generative design. Autodesk said, "Designers or engineers input design goals into generative design software, along with parameters such as materials, manufacturing methods, and cost constraints." The software can rapidly develop design options and learn from its own work. The concept lander features four legs and an organic-looking body, with the physical model fabricated via three-dimensional printing, computer numerical controlled milling, and casting. The lightweight but strong craft could be deployed to worlds beyond Mars in the exploration for life in the solar    .... "
