ANSYS SpaceClaim Direct Modeler
ANSYS SpaceClaim Direct Modeler (ANSYS SCDM) brings you a new way to manipulate your CAD models. The model becomes completely dynamic, allowing you to move, stretch, add and remove with mouse movements. All changes to the CAD model occur in real time on the screen so you have instant feedback on your design.
This functionality will work with existing CAD from 3rd party systems as well as CAD that you have build directly within ANSYS SCDM. The user can also dimension these changes, resulting in a parametric CAD model from non-parametric imports. For example, an IGES file can be imported into ANSYS SCDM and moved as if it was fully parametric.
This type of geometry creation and manipulation is known as Direct Modeling and ANSYS SCDM connects to ANSYS Workbench allowing rapid design changes and updated simulation results. Up front design optimization becomes quicker and simpler with ANSYS SCDM.
