Learn about ANSYS™ SpaceClaim 2016!

SpaceClaim 2016 delivers 10-times faster 3D modeling than any other tool on the market. We've improved a variety of workflows and tools, helping you get your designs and ideas faster to market than ever. You'll see efficiency gains from start to finish. View some highlights below, or check out more details on the side bars.

Available as of December 1st, 2015.


Reverse Engineering

Major Changes:

The new Skin Surface Tool easily allows reverse engineering of highly organic shapes within SpaceClaim. Easily fit complex surfaces through faceted data.

Benefits:

Reverse engineering with a few mouse clicks. Connect highly organic shapes with a few surface patches, or blend period loops together easier than ever. It's one button, but it contains several built in workflows.

Other Enhancements:

  • Create 4-sided, 3-sided, domed, and periodic patches Tightness control
  • Directly edit patch boundaries
  • Connecting of neighboring patches
  • Automated smoothing
  • Auto-skin from planes
  • Fit curves along mesh bodies
  • Sketch directly on meshes

3D Printing

Major Changes:

The new Shinkwrap Tool instantly cleans up models for 3D printing by creating a watertight, regular faceting around selected bodies.

Benefits:

Prepare extremely noisy scanned data or poor quality CAD files for printing in seconds, not hours or days.

Other Enhancements:

  • Improved thickness detection
  • VRML & PLY import with color
  • Shrinkwrapping – repairing and simplifying
  • Advanced repair tools, including curvature detection (intelligent hole filling)
  • Lattice infill type
  • Shelling with face removal

Design & General Enhancements

Major Changes:

Several enhancements include locking dimensions, enhanced navigation, a bidirectional link to Keyshot, and translator improvements.

Benefits:

Users have added control and security of model changes with locked dimensional control. Add to that improvements to navigation, and you'll immediately notice the speed gains. LiveLinking to Keyshot delivers a more efficient rendering experience. Since interoperability has expanded, more users can take advantage of Ansys SpaceClaim for more use cases.

Other Enhancements:

  • Faster SC startup, model load, and save time of large files
  • Locking & flagging dimensions
  • Equation driven curves and surface
  • Scripting – creation of otherwise complex or impossible geometry. Recording of commands, macro-like. Can be parameter controlled. Replay of a script on imported models
  • Support for ECAD import
  • GD&T and annotation improvements
  • PMI – graphical PMI export to 3D PDF
  • Small unit modeling (Micrometer or mils supported)
  • Parallel installs of SC
