Altair Inspire

Altair Inspire software (formally solidThinking Inspire) is the industry's most powerful and easy-to-use generative design, topology optimization and rapid simulation solution for design engineers. It enhances the concept development process by enabling simulation-driven design to increase your product’s efficiency, strength and manufacturability. This can lead to reduced costs, development time, material consumption and product weight. 

Key Features of Altair Inspire Include

Geometry Creation and Simplification

Create, modify, and de-feature solid models using Inspire’s modeling tools.

Customizable Materials

Altair Inspire is packaged with a material library including various aluminum, steel, magnesium, and titanium alloys. Custom materials can also be added.

Optimization Options

Altair Inspire offers a number of topology options including: optimization objectives, stress and displacement constraints, acceleration, gravity, and temperature loading conditions.

Interactive Results Visualization

Explore optimized shapes using a simple slider to add or remove material. Users can decide which features are important and then pick the concept design best suited to their needs.


Investigate linear static and normal modes analysis on a model and visualize displacement, factor of safety, percent of yield, tension and compression, von Mises stress, and major principal stress.

Assembly Configuration

Multiple assembly configurations can be created. These configurations can then be used to evaluate various design scenarios and the resulting concepts.
