Mastering Structural Analysis: Integrating External Loads into Ansys Mechanical

Modern engineers often work on the design of increasingly complex systems that will experience a multitude of simultaneous loading factors – such as forces, thermal effects, and pressure. Ansys Workbench offers a range of options to streamline the process of incorporating these external loads into Ansys Mechanical so that Ansys users can accurately predict stress, strain and fatigue life for such complex systems with greater precision.

Scripting in Ansys Discovery: Automating repetitive tasks and complex workflows

Learn from our video series on how to use scripting in Ansys Discovery to automate repetitive tasks and complex workflows across a broad range of applications. These videos aim to help Ansys Discovery users to learn the scripting interface, work through some useful examples and adapt scripting methods to their own needs.

Using ANSYS SpaceClaim for reverse engineering: how to handle faceted data in your modelling process

Optimised STL Clean-Up in ANSYS SpaceClaim

ANSYS SpaceClaim makes working with STL data easy, enjoyable, and accessible to every engineer. Whether you’re reverse engineering a model in preparation for simulation; or you’re cleaning up a model ready for 3D printing, see how the faceted data toolkit becomes an invaluable addition to your engineering workflow.

Tips & Tricks in ANSYS SpaceClaim: Geometry Defeaturing, Repair and Scripting

Selected Protrusion in ANSYS SpaceClaim

With the advent of Simulation and Analysis software that is increasingly accessible to more engineers, more people are learning about typical problems plaguing users of simulation: clean-up and repair of dirty or (even worse!) corrupted CAD models.  Regardless of whether you are running your analysis with ANSYS or tools such as CST, Strand7, Abacus or others; engineering analysts face similar challenges in the geometry preparation phase of a project. Coming to the table to resolve these issues for the everyday engineer is ANSYS SpaceClaim. Fast, robust, intuitive and easy to use; SpaceClaim enables the user to repair, rebuild and prepare their geometry prior to analysis with little to no training. Within just a few hours of being hands-on with SpaceClaim, users from a range of…
