Bentley, Peter J. and Wakefield, Jonathan P. (1996) The Evolution of Solid Object Designs using Genetic Algorithms. In: Modern Heuristic Search Methods. John Wiley & Sons Inc., Chichester, pp. 199-215. ISBN 978-0-471-96280-9

This paper describes an attempt to enable computers to generate truly novel conceptual designs of three dimensional solid objects by using genetic algorithms (GAs). These designs are represented using spatial partitions of 'stretched cubes' with optional intersecting planes [1]. Each individual three-dimensional solid object has its functionality specified by an explicit objective function, which is utilised by GAs to evolve candidate designs.
