10x Faster Time to Analysis with ANSYS SpaceClaim

ANSYS 17.0 contains extensive improvements to ANSYS SpaceClaim Direct Modeler, which provides speed of design, conceptualization, editing and preparing geometry for simulation. New functionality has been added, including scripting capabilities, edge repair tools and a weld creation tool for shell models. Existing analysis tools, such as imprinting, midsurfacing and beam support, have also been improved.

Attend this webinar and learn about two major enhancements to SpaceClaim Direct Modeler (in addition to those mentioned above): an STL-to-solid tool called Skin Surface and a faceted data simplification called Shrinkwrap. Skin Surface adds more reverse engineering capabilities by building surface geometry on prismatic or organic shapes, such as scan data from a living organism. Shrinkwrap couples with Skin Surface to smooth over rough scans (or dirty CAD data) and further solidifies any faceted model.

Advanced Manufacturing Repair with ANSYS SpaceClaim

CAD models submitted for machining using CAM are rarely defect-free. At best you may just have to delete a few holes; at worst you may have a lot of complicated repair work to do. ANSYS SpaceClaim can help you make advanced repairs to 3-D models simply, quickly and creatively.

Join us for this webinar and learn how to use the ANSYS SpaceClaim environment to rapidly prepare complicated models for machining. Discover how you can:

  • Open and work with data from any 3-D CAD system to easily reuse models
  • Use the intuitive interface with four powerful yet simple tools — Pull, Move, Fill, and Combine — to manipulate the geometry with ease
  • Master the use of repair tools to prepare any model, in any condition, for machining

Reverse Engineering Incomplete Scanned Data with ANSYS SpaceClaim

As with most projects, reverse engineering almost never goes as smoothly as projected. Many times the data is damaged or incomplete, making it difficult to properly and easily reverse engineer into a solid model.

Join us for a webinar on reverse engineering and how easy it is to reverse engineer parts in ANSYS SpaceClaim with functionality such as:

  • Referencing scanned data without being tied strictly to it

  • Easy to use Pull, Move, Fill, and Combine tools to quickly sketch out and build solid models

  • Insert tools (surface, cylinder, sphere) to create a spline surfaces and other geometry based on the selection

  • Create reference plan or axis by selecting facets

  • Compare deviation between scanned data and solid/surface

  • And more!

Stop the Headaches of Design: Use ANSYS SpaceClaim

In the beginning stages of design, the ability to design creatively and without technological constraint is critical. More often than not, however, early design occurs in an environment where it is assumed design intent is already realized, thus creating an atmosphere of frustration as users try to pigeonhole ideas into a platform built for documentation. Even when design intent is realized, working in a constrained environment can slow down productivity without providing any real benefits to the workflow.

Join us for this webinar about ANSYS SpaceClaim’s intuitive and simple interface that provides for you the freedom to:

  • Create and edit geometry multiple times, without the fear of a feature rebuild error

  • Import and edit files from nearly any CAD system

  • Easily make unplanned changes or “undo” recent edits

  • Creatively explore ideas and find the ideal design for your project

  • Easily communicate design specifications with: BOM; rendered designs in KeyShot; Drawings; Engaging design reviews with LiveReview; and more

SpaceClaim Tips and Tricks Revealed Part III: 3D Printing

We are at it again with another Tips and Tricks Revealed webinar! While the first two focused on general modeling capabilities (recordings are still available: I and II), part III will focus on 3D printing.

While SpaceClaim is the fastest and easiest 3D modeling software solution on the market today, our AEs take it to a whole new level with their speed and ability. If you are interested in taking advantage of the full potential of SpaceClaim for 3D Printing, this is the webinar for you.

The tips we'll be covering in the third webinar do not build on the first two, so no need to watch them to get the full benefit of the upcoming webinar on October 15. However we encourage you to check them out: I and II.

Prepping Geometry for Electromagnetic Analysis Using ANSYS SpaceClaim

Geometry is complex and often times in electromagnetic analysis, parts and assemblies can be drastically simplified allowing you to reach a solution faster. The challenge is that it's hard for design engineers to prep models for analysis without being analysis experts, and up until now there hasn't been an easy to use tool designed for geometry preprocessing. SpaceClaim helps solve these challenges by giving analysts the power they need to edit, repair and prepare geometry for electromagnetic analysis, without having to be CAD experts.

In this webinar we'll show how SpaceClaim enables you to:

  • Import and edit any CAD file

  • Remove unnecessary details in imported geometry

  • Drastically simplify models quickly

  • Automatically connect to ANSYS Workbench with bidirectional associativity

The Fundamentals of Reverse Engineering with ANSYS SpaceClaim

Companies that could benefit from reverse engineering in-house but instead outsource to a vendor tend to do so because often the cost of the software and the time needed to learn it are prohibitive. There are other companies that want to reverse engineer but perhaps are unsure of how to do so in a way that makes sense for their company size and resource availability.

In this webinar, we will show you the fundamentals of reverse engineering and how SpaceClaim makes it really easy for companies to bring it in-house with capabilities such as:

  • Intuitive interface with 4 powerful yet simple tools: Pull, Move, Fill, and Combine that allow you to manipulate the geometry easily

  • Undo, Copy, Paste, and other standard tools to quickly fix mistakes, make copies of features, and more

  • Powerful STL editing and solid modeling tool to fit nearly any job's needs

  • Ability to reference scanned data without being constrained by it

Fast Jig and Fixture Creation with ANSYS SpaceClaim

Creating jigs and fixtures is a necessary but sometimes frustrating part of machining. Without the right 3D modeling software, machinists and manufacturing engineers can spend more time creating the tooling than machining the part.

SpaceClaim is the perfect answer to jig and fixture creation. In this webinar, we will show you how SpaceClaim turns a frustrating experience into a fast and painless part of your workflow with functionality such as:

  • Open and work with CAD data from any 3D CAD system to easily reuse models

  • Intuitive interface with 4 powerful yet simple tools: Pull, Move, Fill, and Combine that allow you to manipulate the geometry easily

  • Undo, Copy, Paste, and other standard tools to quickly fix mistakes, make copies of features, and more

Introducing ANSYS AIM

Some product designs require a single physics solution, while others — involving, for example, fluid–structure interactions — require multiple physics simulations. Setting up and running multiphysics simulations used to be a challenging task involving manual transfer of data between solvers. With the introduction of ANSYS AIM™, multiphysics simulations are easy to perform. AIM is an innovative, immersive simulation environment that lowers the barrier to entry for multiphysics simulations. The AIM unified multiphysics platform uses proven ANSYS solutions packaged in a new intuitive environment, making previously complex multiphysics simulations accessible to the entire engineering organization.

Attend this webinar and learn how ANSYS AIM makes it easier than ever to solve your toughest multiphysics design challenges in a single, easy-to-use environment. Learn how AIM’s guided simulation process paradigm can help you to automate your simulations to ensure that they are following engineering best practices every time. Don’t settle for single physics approximations when multiphysics simulations yield more accurate solutions with little additional effort using ANSYS AIM.
