Streamlining the Design Process Using Direct CAD Interfaces

CAD Integration

Many of those involved in engineering simulation feel that embedded CAD tools should be used for upfront simulation because they are tightly linked to the CAD model, whereas CAD-neutral systems, such as those employed in software from ANSYS, are better used downstream of the design process for validation. However, using the ANSYS direct CAD interfaces provides some benefits that CAD-embedded tools cannot offer.
