Jan. 12, 2011
ANSYS SpaceClaim Direct Modeler 2010 SP1, which is compatible with ANSYS 13.0, brings 3D solid modeling to analysts who work in a 3D world but do not want to become experts in traditional, feature-based CAD systems.
ANSYS SpaceClaim Direct Modeler 2010 SP1, which is compatible with ANSYS 13.0, brings 3D solid modeling to analysts who work in a 3D world but do not want to become experts in traditional, feature-based CAD systems. New capabilities in the software include: Users can directly create and edit new SpaceClaim designs from the ANSYS Workbench project schematic. In addition, enhanced repair features make cleaning up dirty geometry easier than ever, while detection algorithms further expedite volume extraction. Also, beam modeling supports cross-section optimization and a new extend tool supports trimming and extending between curves and surfaces to better support beam and shell modeling.
