New features

The intuitive and customizable user interface enables engineers of all levels to get answers fast and with confidence.

Geometry Based Re-Associativity

Efficiently modify a CAD model without losing the associativity of the model’s features after setup with the Scoping Wizard that detects and re-establishes scoping.

Resource Prediction

Gain insight into the computational resources required to solve a simulation using the AI/ML powered Resource Prediction feature, including expected solve time and memory usage.

Geometry Preserving Mesh Adaptivity

Improve simulation accuracy when solving complex models and parts with geometry preserving adaptivity that automatically refines a mesh for better resolution of stresses and strains on intricate features. Mesh adaptivity is done on the initial CAD geometry, eliminates the need for an over-refined initial mesh, and takes out the guesswork on mesh sizing for durability studies.

Topography Optimization

Optimization of frame and shell structures are performed using a new topography optimization method that improves the structural durability of the component while minimizing mass.

Contact Enhancements

Efficiently set up contacts for complex models between adhesives and metal sheet components common in Body in White (BIW) durability models with an improved and simplified setup method. This new method removes the need for duplicate contact setup and bookkeeping of top/bottom faces of sheet bodies, drastically reducing setup time.

Meshing Enhancements

Generate a higher-quality mesh that meets your criteria the first time. Improvements include tetrahedral meshes for drop test simulations and feature suppression, swept hexahedral meshes and meshes for welds and shells, and general usability.
