Ansys Discovery

3D Simulation Software

Ansys Discovery features the first simulation-driven design tool combining instant physics simulation, high-fidelity simulation and interactive geometry modeling in a single easy-to-use experience.


Ansys Discovery reveals critical insights early in the design process

By combining interactive modeling and multiple simulation capabilities in a first-of-its-kind product, Discovery allows you to answer critical design questions earlier in the design process. This upfront approach to simulation saves time and effort on prototyping as you explore multiple design concepts in real time with no need to wait for simulation results.

  • Easy-to-use interface
  • High-fidelity simulation powered by Ansys solvers
  • Embedded multiphysics simulation
  • First-of-its-kind live physics simulation

New features

Set up and run simulations in Ansys Discovery for a wide range of industries and applications faster and easier than ever before with new capabilities, performance improvements and dynamic collaboration updates.

Increased Accuracy for Thin Structures

Improved accuracy for Live structural physics increases confidence in fast simulation results while reducing GPU memory requirements by up to 10x.

Subdivisional Modeling

This highly innovative new feature makes editing any CAD possible for the first time, especially for smooth organic components and parts. Reduce complex “what if” geometry changes from hours or days to seconds.

Redesigned Workflow

Simulations are only as valuable as the insights drawn from them, which is why Discovery continues redefining what a simulation user experience should be.
