Updates to SpaceClaim’s products focus on engineering productivity. SpaceClaim Engineer is a 3D modeler for top-down design, 3D layout, conceptual engineering, and model preparation for simulation and analysis.
SpaceClaim Engineer can import and edit Pro/Engineer, Autodesk, CATIA v4, VDA, Parasolid, SolidWorks, JT, and NX native files.
The software interoperates with CAD systems and analysis products such as ANSYS Workbench, Gambit, Algor, CFdesign and Comsol. New features include:
— Intuitive pull, move, fill, and combine tools for model editing and 2D cross-section modeling.
— Model preparation tools to detect and repair problems
— Increased surfacing power for highly stylized designs
— Enhanced analysis tools for industrial design visualization and manufacturing validation
