Getting Started with SpaceClaim in ANSYS 17.0 - ANSYS e-Learning

ANSYS SpaceClaim Direct Modeler (SCDM) software provides easy and fast tools to get geometry ready for simulation. Engineering Manager Eric Stamper showcases the capabilities you now have in v17 with your Mechanical Enterprise license. SCDM uses a new approach to manipulate your CAD models, which makes the geometry become completely dynamic, allowing you to move, stretch and add and remove geometry features with ease. All changes to the geometry occur in real time, enabling instant feedback on design iterations.

View this ANSYS e-Learning to see how SpaceClaim Direct Modeler:

  • Easily repairs corrupt and dirty geometry issues
  • Allows for fast de-featuring and simplification of complex CAD models
  • Streamlines model-prep tasks for FEA with simple tools
  • Add dimension parameters to models for optimization studies

This type of geometry creation and manipulation is known as Direct Modeling. ANSYS SCDM connects to ANSYS Workbench enabling rapid design changes and updated simulation results.  During this webinar, we will demonstrate how engineers can easily explore their ideas and problem solve in 3D, reuse and quickly edit models from any CAD system, and simplify models for analysis. By putting simulation users in control of geometry, CAE can drive product development by optimizing models before CAD and validating results post-CAD.
