Airbus is implementing generative design technology to redesign different parts of aircraft, including a partition that acts as a barrier between the cabin and the gallery. The new partition is named the 'Bionic Partition 2.0,' and it was created due to Autodesk's generative design technology which now has the ability to account for multiple advanced manufacturing techniques.
Bastian Schalmalloy, an innovation manager for Airbus, stated that using generative design technologies allowed the company to create a new partition that is 50% lighter than the previous design. Schalmalloy also states that the company is taking action to implement the new design into aircraft. If the new design is implemented in the company's A320 planes, it could result in a drastic reduction in carbon emissions from flights.
