Engineering design process in today's world requires a tight coupling between the construction and modification of Engineering models and the Analysis of those models against design criteria. The ability to quickly analyze a model and make corresponding design changes then repeat the process iteratively is a key requirement for Engineering companies reducing their time to market.
Analysis applications need to be able to work with the design data as seamlessly as possible. Spatial offers a wide range of modeling functionalities, both for creation of complex geometric models and for accessing and querying the data in them for inputs to the analysis tasks. Rendering and display, including tools for display of analysis outputs from thermal or stress analyses, are seamlessly integrated as well as the ability to work with geometry from other systems as if it were created in the same application.
Spatial provides all the tools you need in Engineering Analysis applications to prepare geometric models for analysis, including:
- Feature identification and removal for model simplification
- Mesh generation with fully controllable mesh parameters for inputs to finite element analysis
- Definitions of dimensions and tolerances for design optimization and tolerance analysis
- Import data from a wide range of CAD formats, from robust geometry with full manufacturing information to scanned polygonal representations
