Structural Analysis for Rapid Design Iterations

For many organisations, using simulation technologies to predict if a product will meet its performance goals can be a frustrating process. Especially in the case of trying to analyse large assemblies and complex geometry. In these situations, models must be significantly simplified to enable the meshing process. This process is very time consuming and, in some cases, can take days for model preparation.

What is SimSolid?

SimSolid is the game-changing simulation technology for designers, engineers, and analysts. It eliminates geometry preparation and meshing: the two most time-consuming, expertise-extensive and error-prone tasks performed in a conventional structural simulation. Multiple design scenarios can be simulated quickly under real-life conditions. Early CAD models, in any common format, can be used. SimSolid tolerance of imprecise geometry means that, unlike CAD-embedded simulation tools, there is no need to simplify complex geometries before analyzing designs. Providing the simulation power to help quicker engineering decisions, it aids the development of quality products faster to beat competitors to market.

Eliminate Geometry Simplification
SimSolid's unique technology totally eliminates geometry simplification and meshing: the two most time-consuming, expertise extensive and error-prone tasks done in traditional structural analysis.

Analyze Complex and Large Assemblies
Conceived to analyze complex parts or large assemblies not practical with traditional FEA, SimSolid excels faced with ragged contact surfaces having both gaps and overlapping geometry.

Get Results in Seconds to Minutes
SimSolid is fast, having solution times measured in seconds to minutes, typically, on a standard PC, enabling comparison between multiple design scenarios quickly and accurately.
