The objective of this user study is to evaluate the effect of sequencing of unit cell design guidelines. The unit cell design guidelines support engineers in intentionally redesigning the topology and shape of unit cells for a desired structural behavior. In this study, four different unit cell design guidelines are selected to enable designers in increasing the shear flexure in meso-scale periodic cellular materials. These guidelines are not necessarily objective and may result in different modified unit cells when applied by different designers. Therefore, this user study was designed to evaluate the effect of sequencing the guidelines on the subjectivity and the modified unit cells. Twelve different sequencing sets are tested and it is found that certain sequencing of guidelines resulted in more novel ideas than other cases with less subjective guidelines.
