By performing structural analyses on fully featured CAD assemblies within minutes, 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.
SimSolid supports all typical connections (bolt/nut, bonded, welds, rivets, sliding) and analysis of linear static, modal, thermal properties, along with more complex coupled, nonlinear, transient dynamic effects. Providing the simulation power to help quicker engineering decisions, it aids development of quality products faster to beat competitors to market.
Supported connections include: bonded and sliding bolts, virtual connectors, welds (spot, laser, and fillet), rivets. Supported boundary conditions include: immovable, sliding, force, pressure, gravity, thermal, inertia, inertia relief, hydrostatic, bearing, hinge and remote loads.
Simulation studies available include: linear statics, modal, thermal, coupled thermal-stress, material nonlinear, geometric nonlinear, transient dynamics (time, frequency and random response).
SimSolid reads all common CAD file formats including: CATIA, NX, PTC/Creo, Inventor, Fusion 360, SOLIDWORKS, Onshape, JT, STEP, VDA, Parasolid, ACIS, PLMXML, CGR, STL
Output many different results, including: contour plots with displacements, stress & strains, deformed shape animation, Max/min labels, point probes, XY plots, reaction/contact forces, bolt/nut forces, spot weld forces, frequencies and mode shapes, modal participation factors, safety factors.
