Abstract: This study evolves and categorises a population of conceptual designs by their ability to handle physical constraints. The design process involves a trade-off between form and function. The aesthetic considerations of the designer are constrained by physical considerations and material cost. In previous work, we developed a design grammar capable of evolving aesthetically pleasing designs through the use of an interactive evolutionary algorithm. This work implements a fitness function capable of applying engineering objectives to automatically evaluate designs and, in turn, reduce the search space that is presented to the user.
