The Simcenter 3D Difference

Perform Advanced Analysis Modeling

Used Advanced Modeling Analysis

Simcenter 3D reduces the time you spend preparing analysis models – up to 70 percent! It delivers all the advanced meshing, boundary conditions, and solver interfaces you need.

Leverage Multi-Discipline Simulation

No matter the analysis, you will always be within the same user interface, have the same base analysis and geometry modeling capabilities, and use the same file structure and management scheme.

Perform Systems-Level Simulationl

Build and run complex models & units of study effectively, do advanced simulation & co-simulation with systems, easily solve big models and compare data with physical testing.

Why Simcenter?

Maximize Your Productivity with Simcenter

Simcenter 3D builds on a heritage which spans over 40 years and encompasses well known CAE brands like Simcenter Nastran, SDRC I-deas®. Simcenter 3D directly addresses the challenges you face with simulation today through a modern and completely integrated environment that delivers significant benefits. Simcenter 3D does not require NX CAD and can be used as a standalone pre/postprocessor with support for multi-CAD geometry. Simcenter 3D delivers additional benefits when used in situations where NX is used for design, such as seamless data transfer between the design team and analysis team.

Simcenter 3D delivers increased production speeds to your entire product development cycle so you can bring your products to market faster. More efficient simulation processes also lead to more innovation by allowing more design-analysis iterations that can be used to test more design alternatives and make critical design decisions earlier.

Your product quality is increased by more easily simulating real-world conditions. You get a truer understanding of how your product will perform. Simcenter 3D also facilitates easier trade-off analysis across multiple disciplines so you develop more robust products. Requirements tracking and reporting capabilities allow you to quickly gauge if your product is performing to specification.

You get lower overall product development costs. Faster simulation processes mean analysis results are fed back to design earlier, leading to a reduction in costly, late design change orders. Additionally, correlating simulation with physical testing provides more confidence in your analysis result so you reduce costly physical prototypes.
