By starting simulation early in design, changes are made when they are easiest, time-to-manufacture is shortened, and cost-to-manufacture can be reduced. And accurate simulation of complete models reduce the number of physical prototypes and further reduce time and cost.
Simulation capabilities for Solid Edge users include simulation of individual parts, assembly analysis, definition and analysis of complete systems and computational fluid dynamics (CFD)
Built-in finite element analysis (FEA) allows design engineers to digitally validate part and assembly designs within the Solid Edge environment. Based on proven Femap finite element modeling and NX Nastran solver technology, Solid Edge Simulation significantly reduces the need for physical prototypes, which lowers your material and testing costs, and saves design time.
FloEFD for Solid Edge is the only frontloading computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis tool—fully embedded in Solid Edge. Moving CFD simulation early into the design process helps design engineers examine trends and eliminate less desirable design options.
Affordable high performance FEA modeling for the engineering desktop. Femap is recognized as the world’s leading CAD-independent Windows-native pre- and post- processor for advanced engineering finite element analysis.
The prototypes were made in a virtual world. The first product is the end product. What I see on my screen is what’s really going to be there.
