GERMZ : Genetically Recombinant Modeler

As a computational design tool germZ is innovative in its application of Genetic Programming (GP) techniques to the generation of three-dimensional form, and in its intelligent interaction with the user. In contrast to optimization techniques, germZ supports the inherently nonlinear design process by always submitting multiple solutions for review. The investigative software is written in C++ as a plug-in to Alias|Wavefront Studio.
