STAR-SpaceClaim Integrates Design and Simulation Functions for users of SpaceClaim Engineer and STAR-CCM+
Thursday, 09 January 2014
SpaceClaim, the leading provider of flexible and affordable 3D modeling software for engineers, and CD-adapco(TM), the largest privately held CFD-focused CAE provider, announced the immediate availability of STAR-SpaceClaim. This module, developed by CD-adapco for SpaceClaim Engineer, provides native transfer of SpaceClaim models to STAR-CCM+®, preserving the data structure, part/assembly structure, naming, design parameters, and more. These capabilities eliminate downstream geometry clean-up.
“Engineers across organizations are using 3D to improve their workflow and end results. Smart technology companies are making it easier for 3D models to move between teams and allow input from many sources to improve designs before production,” said Chris Randles, SpaceClaim CEO. “CD-adapco provides excellent tools for simulation and is making it easy for engineers to apply those tools throughout the design process.”
“SpaceClaim Engineer is an easy-to-use and powerful platform for 3D model pre-processing, making it a popular choice for many of our users,” said Jean-Claude Ercolanelli, Sr. Vice President Product Management for CD-adapco. “We work hard to help our customers compress product development schedules. STAR-SpaceClaim is a big leap forward, providing streamlined workflows and the means to capture important simulation data when it is most useful.”
STAR-SpaceClaim is compatible with STAR-CCM+ v8.06, released in October 2013. More information on STAR-SpaceClaim can be found at http://www.cd-adapco.com/.
