ANSYS SpaceClaim

Cloud-based tool for engineering simulation and 3D designing

About ANSYS SpaceClaim

Ansys is an engineering simulation and 3D design software that can be utilized by business across several industry segments, including automotive, aerospace, construction, energy, healthcare, military, chemical processing, and consumer goods. It helps organizations manage processes related to workflow automation, predictive analysis, simulation visualization, application customization, and product testing.

Using Ansys’ multiphysics simulation methodology, engineers can combine thermal, fluid, electromagnetic, structural, and other physics components to evaluate real-world interactions between complex products. The EnSight platform allows team members to analyse, visualize, and collaborate on post-processing simulation operations. The Exalto tool lets staff members predict electromagnetic coupling effects in integrated circuits (ICs) during the signoff phase. The electronics module enables developers to simulate and analyze temperature and vibration effects across component, circuit, and system designs.

Ansys comes with an API, which allows businesses to integrate the platform with several third-party solutions. With the optical simulation tool employees can simulate and evaluate systems’ optical performance and final illumination effect. It also lets users create 3D geometric designs for rotating machinery components, such as pumps, fans, compressors, turbines, turbochargers, and blowers.

I have worked with SolidWorks for design 3D models. But when it comes to simulation Solidworks have very limited options. Then seniors suggest me to use ANSYS for the simulation purposes. More advanced simulations can be modelled with ANSYS. It is a great tool. Plenty of tutorials can be found online. Correctly following the design steps will lead to successful simulation.

Pros

This tool is recommended by most of the professional experts for the simulation of 3D models. Basic operations are very similar to ordinary CAD tools. Advanced simulations can be modelled and simulated. Lot of tutorials and documentation are available on the internet.

Cons

It requires basic mechanical engineering knowledge there for not much suitable for beginners. Highly advanced tool than other CAD tools. Simulations require a lot of processing power and time. Therefore it is hard to run simulations on Laptops.

Mind blowing, superb, Over the expectations and knowledgeable

Pros

I love to describe this software because I have used it a lot in my masters studies. In my subject CFD I.e. computational fluid dynamics I have used this software to define a structure and also analyze the flow through it. Space Spaceclaim is very much user Friendly and easy to understood. I took only a week or so to have a good command over Spaceclaim. The different geometries can be easily define and can be specified with given boundary conditions in spaceclaim. The analysis and result section of ansys is the most interesting part as the actual fluid data were analyzed as per the Spaceclaim model. I have created a gear pump in Spaceclaim and also analyze it in detail with a working animation. This all can be possible via ansys. ANSYS can be defined as an Bunch of technologies and predefined technological softwares. For students like me 1 year of free ansys is available on the ansys official website. Every type of simulations were possible with ansys.

Cons

It requires a lot of computation and the time of computation is pretty long as in my case of Analysis of a gear pump, I have to wait for some 15 minutes when there is an initialization of the structure. I know that complex parts are time consuming due to the meshing which is pretty dense. But a faster database is an requirement for the ansys users.

I have used solidworks,inventor , fusion 360,but when it comes to simulation it is the best 3d modelling software. my experience quite well using this app.

Pros

this app is recommended for experts for 3d modelling especially when you are using ansys for simulation as advanced simulation can be modelled.

Cons

It requires knowledge of theoritical and practical mechanical engineering.sometimes it crashes if the modelling is complex.

Reviewed on 2018/07/23

Pros

1.) Its topology optimization in a latest update provides accurate results against shape optimization in old versions.
2.) This saves time when running multiple computes to get your desired mesh.

Cons

1.) It requires a wealth of knowledge and experience including theoretical &
practical.
2.) It costs high for learners and does not provide access to full set of tools.

For simulation and analysis this is the best CAD software one can go for. The Latest version is an add-on with more useful feature to ANYSYS spaceclaim enables the user to get the job done.

Pros

The user can constraint the sketches with spaceclaim design options. New block recording feature allow the user to easily edit the CAD models which are imported from other CAD platform. Analysis is best in this software with detailed stress definition. Simulation of operation is also done.

Cons

Use interface need to improved. Customer support needed with more multi domain representative. Software is bulk for lower configured workstations.
