3-D Design Exploration

The Ansys 3-D Design products enable CAD modeling and simulation for all design engineers. Since the demands on today’s design engineer to build optimized, lighter and smarter products are greater than ever, using the appropriate design tools is more important than ever.

3-D Modeling

It all starts with Ansys SpaceClaim, a fast and intuitive 3-D modeling tool. Built on direct modeling technology, SpaceClaim makes creating, repairing or editing geometry easy again, instead of a chore.

Whether you are involved in concept modeling, reverse engineering scanned data or preparing a model for manufacturing or simulation, SpaceClaim’s tools are designed to remove geometry bottlenecks and accelerate the design process.

Instant Simulation

Ansys Discovery Live, currently available as a technology preview, provides instantaneous simulation tightly coupled with direct geometry modeling to enable interactive design exploration. Supporting common fluid, structural and thermal simulation applications, it allows engineers to experiment with design ideas and see instant feedback from their changes.

Simulation for Design Engineers

Ansys AIM seamlessly integrates design and simulation for all engineers, helping them to explore ideas and concepts in greater depth. AIM provides a single platform for simulation-driven product development. With guided workflows to promote best practices, you can take advantage of best-in-class Ansys solver technology to the fullest. Easy to learn and use, it offers unmatched versatility, speed and precision to optimize designs and take them to the next level. Whether performing thermal, electromagnetic, structural, fluid or various multiphysics combinations, AIM eliminates the need for any other simulation software for designers.
