Understand where geometry needs to be to achieve your design goal based on given loads and fixtures. Design Guidance will give you an insight of what geometry satisfies those conditions. Use sketches or 3D geometry to define the connection points and force conditions. Select existing geometry to avoid or leave intact. Choose the resolution required to optimize for time or result. Use the results as a guide to create the design, or automatically smooth the output.
