Ansys SpaceClaim is a best in class tool for simulation prep and concept modeling. In addition to simplifying and repairing geometry for simulation, it provides direct modeling for part, assembly, and drawing creation. SpaceClaim can edit geometry from most CAD systems and neutral formats, work with faceted formats such as STL, and can be used for scan to CAD, manufacturing, and sheet metal workflows.
Simplify repetitive multi-body adjustments by easily defining group and layer instances of similar yet independent solid bodies (e.g., bolts, screws, washers, ...)
Easily make NACA (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics) airfoil geometry models for 3D fluid flow computations
Create bend data table for 3D Pipes. Tables for Drawings and/or for Export to Files.
Create Standard Geometries of Fastners and Shapes from existing Library.
Automate the CAD cleanup process for general applications and offers model preparation and simplification for Icepak, it exports material properties (if available) for a thermal simulation
SpaceClaimXL allows the user to import a large assembly into SpaceClaimXL. You can view the assembly, search and select any sub-component to "move" into SpaceClaim.
