This thesis explores the applicability of algorithmic design for biomedical device design through the use of the shape grammar formalism. This method is expressed as an algorithm that describes the computational mechanism for composing shapes utilizing symbols, geometry, and algebraic operations. The generation of medical injector designs and their successful testing demonstrates the applicability of shape grammars to design synthesis in a high-performance design setting.
