Defeaturing automatically identifies and removes small features that CAE analysts typically want to eliminate from a 3D model prior to meshing. Typically, the models with which CAE analysts work are also used for design and manufacturing. However, these models often carry much more detail than is appropriate for simulation or analysis purposes. Defeaturing simplifies the model by removing unnecessary detail, a process typically done manually at a significant cost. Defeaturing provides a flexible interface with feature recognition parameters defining the desired level of detail.
Key Features of Defeaturing:
- Automatically identifies and removes specified feature types
- Handles fillets, chamfers, and round holes
- Filters by feature desired size or feature type
What Can Defeaturing Offer You?
By removing unnecessary detail, developers can work with models more appropriate to their simulation or analysis purposes.
Reduced Project Costs
Defeaturing simplifies the model, a process that is typically done manually and at a significant cost.
Enabling the use of a single model for design, manufacture, and analysis, Defeaturing streamlines development by allowing analysts to filter features on a model by size or type.
