Advanced design software allows designers to rapidly create huge numbers of design variations. However, these variations do not incorporate material and manufacturing limits, which are typically considered much later during the process of design documentation. By creating a method, which incorporates these limits during the design process, we avoid iterations that would be difficult, costly, or impossible to build. This method allows designers to work in a configured design space, which focuses on feasible designs.
