5th place

Perfect execution, awesome finish, and the instantiation of the windows is spot-on. This project also gets special mention due to the best poster produced this year where the application is intuitively described.


Results CMDO 2016

Results from the course Collaborative Multi-Disciplinary Design Optimisation course.

The top three groups are the following (in no specific order). These 3 groups represent those who have shown examplary understanding of MDO and as a group were able to successfully divide and execute the various tasks given to them by the course coordinators.

  1. Adam Eklund, Martin Hellberg, Morgan Huber
  2. Munib Baber, Mattias Nilsson, Karl Walheim
  3. Max Hallqvist, Niklas Journath, Daniel Dynesius

1st place

Inspired by the Munich olympic park and the legendary Frei Otto, this group has created a truly amazing automated design which is able to automatically instantiated tensile structures on extreme design surfaces. Enjoy the video!




2nd to 5th place 2016

2nd place

Easily transform you conceptual tower. Then automatically instantiate the complete structure AND all the window which are placed upon the generated structure. A great example of instantiation upon instantiation. Amazing project!


3rd Place

Perfectly executed model which is able to automatically generate a tower with individually instantiated windows which differ in size and and shape depending on the placement, segment shape and so on. Also a great example of instantiation upon instantiation. Really well done!


4th place

A great project with the possibility to generate a stadium including the roof structure as well as the actual seats. Would be a great tool to use in conceptual designs for new stadiums!


5th place

A great project which is able to automatically generate a very complex stadium structure. Really well done!


6th to 10th place 2016

6th place

Wadala Tower project is an amazing implementation of how structural elements can be automatically instantiated on conceptual and complex geometries. The result of this project is impressive.


7th place

The LiU Zeppelin project is a great example of how repetitive processes can be automatically configured. Here the best examples are the outer plates as well as the inner structure.


8th place

The Colosseum of Rome is a very well executed project where both the shape and elements of the colosseum are user choices. The various elements of the colosseum can be automatically selected and placed out by the user in order to retrieve the final model.


9th place

With the Immersive Train project, the user is able to chose train type, chair type and windows to intuitively configure a unique layout. One of the best features of this project is that new CAD models can be added to the library for configuration, not locking the user to a pre-set CAD library.


10th place

The Legendary Warbirds project is a balanced result of great CAD modeling and automation of repetitive CAD elements. The participants have been able to model and automatically configure conceptual structure of a WWII like Aircraft.

3rd place … also a tie!

On third place we have two groups as well. Both groups have of course very good modeling and programming implemented in their respective projects.

Specifically, the Infinity bridge project has been able to create a robust and flexible solution for a design which can seem simple but is in fact very complicated. The Roller Coaster is also a complex product and what earns this project a spot 3 place is their way to portray and manage their product in their user interface.



5th place is a tie!

On 5th place we have two projects this year, which although worked with different products, still had similarities. Both project succeeded in executing there modeling and automation in a way so that the end results stayed true to the product which was chosen. London Eye and IJ Bridge have never been as robust, flexible and incredible!
