Comprehensive Finite Element Modeling for Experienced CAE Analysts

Preparing a simulation model is a multi-step process of importing and editing CAD geometry, meshing and connecting components, editing material properties, defining boundary and loading conditions, and exporting to the appropriate solver data format. It’s no wonder that up to 80 percent of an analyst’s time can be spent preparing models for simulation.

Simcenter 3D drastically reduces the time you spend preparing simulation models. Simcenter delivers all the advanced meshing, boundary conditions and solver interfaces that experienced analysts expect for high-end analysis. What makes Simcenter 3D unique from all other preprocessors however, is how its superior geometry engine enables intuitive geometry editing and analysis model associativity to multi-CAD data. The tight integration of a powerful geometry engine with robust analysis modeling commands is the key to reducing modeling time by up to 70 percent compared to traditional finite element modeling tools.
