Enables Geometry Creation and Editing in a Neutral, Collaborative Environment for Model-Based Engineering & Simulation Process Automation
Concord, MA, October 4, 2011: SpaceClaim, the market leader in direct modeling software that enables all engineers to work in 3D, today announced that SpaceClaim Engineer has been integrated with the Comet Performance Engineering Workspace. Comet enables individual engineers as well as cross-functional product engineering teams to develop more innovative and reliable products. Comet automates multi-disciplinary and multi-fidelity performance simulation activities linked directly to achieving key product performance requirements, starting from early concept design exploration through final design validation.
“Comet Solutions’ business philosophy is to enable engineers to be more productive and impact the design process by leveraging their current simulation best practices. Also, associated design and engineering software tools (both COTS and in-house) enable geometry-independent, multi-physics modeling and analysis for standard single physics as well as complex multi-fidelity activities,” stated Malcolm Panthaki, CTO and Founder of Comet Solutions. “Our CAE users still spend a disproportionate amount of their time dealing with 3D CAD geometry that is not suitable for conceptual engineering/design discovery as well as final design validation. SpaceClaim supports CAE analyst needs for geometry-based simulation modeling tasks better than any traditional 3D CAD tool."
“Just as SpaceClaim enables rapid conceptual design, a Comet Intelligent Process Template is able to analyze a wide range of changes to the design topology and alternative configurations/variants rather than be limited to making relatively small ‘tweaks’ to parameters contained in the baseline simulation files/models as is the case for other solutions on the market," explains Mr. Panthaki.
“SpaceClaim was created from day one to be neutral and easily enable engineers to work with CAD files in any format,” said Rich Moore, Vice President of Business Development, SpaceClaim. “We additionally work with the best simulation software companies, including ANSYS and COMSOL, to enable CAE engineers to perform analysis, concept and simulation-driven design all through SpaceClaim as the complete solution. This agreement with Comet Solutions further extends SpaceClaim’s compatibility for optimal collaboration and reduction of time-to-market.”
