SIMSOLID™ is next generation, high capacity, structural FEA. It uses new computational methods which allow the solution of assemblies with hundreds to thousands of parts directly on a standard desktop computer. SIMSOLID is the perfect complement to existing CAD embedded simulation. It extends the analysis range and provides feedback in seconds to minutes.
With SIMSOLID you can:
- ANALYZE ORIGINAL CAD GEOMETRY DIRECTLY– SIMSOLID’s unique technology completely eliminates geometry simplification and meshing, the two most time consuming, expertise extensive and error prone tasks done in traditional FEA. SIMSOLID works with the fully detailed CAD representation. It eliminates the requirement to simplify the design to remove small features or parts such as bolts with threads, washers and nuts, small imprints, fillets or rounds. SIMSOLID is capable of solving large assemblies containing multi-scale parts that are both thick and thin or big and small. SIMSOLID can solve complex lattice based 3D printed parts.
- HANDLE REAL WORLD DESIGN COMPLEXITY– SIMSOLID has been performance tuned to analyze complex parts and large assemblies not practical with traditional FEA and do it efficiently on a desktop class computer. SIMSOLID is tolerant of imprecise geometry. Its assembly connections are industry best at handling ragged contact surfaces with both gaps and overlapping geometry.
- ACCURACY IS BUILT-IN– SIMSOLID controls solution accuracy using smart functions and a unique automatic adaptive process. In contrast to FEA, the adaptivity is driven by absolute measures of approximation errors. In SIMSOLID, adaptivity is not an option, it is always active.
- EVALUATE DESIGN CHANGE– SIMSOLID’s unique multi-CAD design studies allow you to quickly evaluate and compare the structural performance from different geometric configurations and CAD sources. All analysis definitions update automatically making design iterations fast and painless.
SIMSOLID comes with complete CAD integration to SOLIDWORKS, Autodesk Fusion 360 and Onshape as well as a generic STL reader. More information on SIMSOLID can be found at www.simsolid.com.
