  • Dynamics for SpaceClaim 1.5.0 - New Features


    Download Dynamics for SpaceClaim 1.5.0

    Dynamics for SpaceClaim 1.5.0 marks a major step forward in terms of post-processing.  The plot tool now features the ability to plot any output data as a function of any other.  This facilitates advanced phase diagram, mechanical advantage and frequency domain studies, and more.

    Additionally, we have added functionality that helps you analyse and compare data from multiple simulations and design iterations.  This is a valuable asset that makes it possible to evolve mechanical designs more intelligently and efficiently, and simplifies sensitivity and reliability analysis.

    Here is a brief explanation on how to use ...

  • Guest Blog: The Harmonic Resonance That Facilitates Innovation

    Peter Norlindh is the Partner Alliances Executive (CAD / CAE) at Algoryx Simulation. Algoryx is a partner of ANSYS SpaceClaim. Their product, Dynamics for SpaceClaim, is available as an add-on to ANSYS SpaceClaim

    Some years ago, I applied for a job at a major engineering company. I phoned the head of engineering and began to promote myself as being Creative and Analytical. Upon which he replied: "I recently took a management training course which included a segment on personality traits. Apparently, a single person cannot exhibit both Creative and Analytical abilities. Those qualities are mutually exclusive. So, I can't ...
