ANSYS DesignSpace is a powerful, yet easy-to-use simulation software package that gives product designers and engineers the power to conceptualize, design and validate all their ideas right on their desktops. Using Knowledge-Based Automation™, this streamlined, user-friendly simulation tool is based on the same powerful ANSYS technology that has been resolving challenging design issues for more than 32 years.
Using DesignSpace, product design teams will produce better products in less time with fewer field failures. DesignSpace gives designers and engineers the ability to easily perform real-world, step-by-step structural, thermal, dynamic, weight optimization, performance optimization, vibration mode and safety factor simulations on all their designs. DesignSpace also includes the industry's best Web-based Report Generator.
DesignSpace is fully associative with the latest versions of major three-dimensional CAD packages, including: Autodesk Inventor, Solid Edge, Unigraphics, SolidWorks, Pro/ENGINEER, and Autodesk Mechanical Desktop. Plus, DesignSpace reads data from CATIA and common file geometry file formats like SAT, and Parasolid.
From single parts to complex and large assemblies, and even through to complete systems, DesignSpace turns 3-D CAD environments into a complete virtual product development system.
DesignSpace - Includes simulation capability for assemblies utilizing automatic contact capability for rigid and sliding assemblies.
Additional functionality in DesignSpace:
- Automatic assembly setup with surface contact
- Linear assembly contact
- Manual contact properties manipulation
- Assembly/part feature accuracy
- Advanced assembly visualization
- Nonlinear contact
Advanced Functionality - With the ANSYS Workbench environment, DesignSpace users can benefit from seamless interoperability between up-front and full-scale simulation. Once projects are started in DesignSpace, they can easily be saved and opened by a more advanced ANSYS product that contains the required simulation functionality like: nonlinear materials, harmonics, large deformation or advanced contact.
