Wind hasaerospace industry, but for most of the morphed trees to minimize the drag onflow challenges the question with them; and sand driven by the windbiomimicry remains: What if nature has creates an aerodynamically efficientnot (yet) delivered the blueprint to bulk of grains, also known as dunes.solve your engineering problem? And Our very own heart is a flow optimizedyou cannot wait a few thousand years solution to transport blood throughhoping for the solution to accidently our body in the most economical way.evolve. And the likeliness is high that etc.nature has not yet made relevant design-proposals for an efficient The problem with biomimicry cooling duct for 3D printers. In recent decades engineers have started to leverage the power of thoseThirdly, many evolutionary designed solutions in nature and began to mimicflow solutions involve organic shapes them to solve related fluid dynamicsthat do not fit into the limitations and engineering problems. This disciplinemindset of traditional computer aided has become very famous as Biomimicrydesign and manufacturing technology. or Bionics. And while this isAll too often even the most efficient undoubtably amazing engineering,solution is dropped as it simply cant be there are several limitations associatedmanufactured.with this approach. Firstly, as all those solutions result from an evolutionaryBut lets imagine what would happen, if process, it implies it takes thousands ifwe dont limit ourselves on mimicking not millions of years for nature tothe few flow-optimized designs that having come up with them.evolution came up with, but instead we mimic the evolutionary process itself, Secondly, does not always come upbut evolution a million times faster. And with a flow optimized solution that isthen we add on top a way to relevant to the engineering problem atmanufacture even the most unusual hand. For sure, the shark nose hasuncompromised designs. While this may inspired several automobilesound like science fiction, in truth todays manufacturers in their aerodynamicengineers hold all relevant tools in their solutions, as have eagle wings for thehands to make this vision a reality. 34'
