ON-DEMAND | Accelerating Design and Analysis of Facades with SimSolid

During this on-demand video, we were joined by Sotech, a leading designer and manufacturer of the Optima range of engineered metal rainscreen facades and architectural fabrications, who has adopted the use of SimSolid. We discuss how Simsolid has ultimately helped them to deliver faster products and provide a better client experience.


  • Introduce Altair SimSolid and AEC solutions
  • Provide an overview of Sotech experience of Altair solutions
  • Demonstration how Altair SimSolid can be used when designing and analysing rainscreen facades, including:
    • Time and money savings while creating engineered design solutions
    • Rapidly explore ‘what if’ scenarios
    • Ability to easily simulate risk of failure in service.
“We continue to save time with SimSolid. The time saved varies by complexity of projects, On average across all projects, we’re approximately 50 percent faster”.
