Products Overview SpaceClaim Engineer SpaceClaim Style Add-on Modules CAE Preparation

A Quantum Leap in Design Productivity

Engineers and designers constantly handle data that is passed among multiple CAD sources and destinations. Large amounts of time are wasted when users receive data that they cannot edit directly, then must work with the originator of the detailed design to modify the the model as required, or recreate native geometry to ensure it changes correctly. Feature-based CAD products excel for detailed design, but are inappropriate for conceptual design, engineering analysis and simulation-driven design.

SpaceClaim, the world's most innovative 3D Direct Modeling software solution, gives engineers and designers the freedom and flexibility to capture fresh ideas easily, make dramatic edits to models from any CAD system, and simplify models for simulation analysis, digital prototyping and manufacturing. SpaceClaim is a CAD neutral product that helps engineers, product designers and manufacturers work concurrently, finish projects in a fraction of the time, and deliver products to market faster.



Products Overview

SpaceClaim enables the extended design and engineering teams work concurrently, complete projects at a fraction of the cost, and accelerate time-to-market. Users can edit 3D designs based on their intentions, regardless of which CAD system the model was created in, and experiment freely with design concepts, unrestricted by complex parameters and restraints. SpaceClaim is easy to learn and use, cost effective, and very accurate, enabling 3D conceptual design by everyone and driving improved innovation and collaboration.

SpaceClaim 2009 introduces many new enhancements and features, which fall into the following categories:


  • Model Cleanup and Preparation

  • Analysis and Visualization

  • Detailing

  • Modeling

  • Interoperability

  • User Interface

  • Language Support

SpaceClaim Engineer

3D for innovative engineering

SpaceClaim Engineer is the world's fastest and most innovative 3D direct modeler. It enables engineers to easily create concepts and prepare 3D designs for digital prototyping, analysis and manufacturing. SpaceClaim Engineer is especially suited for engineering professionals who need a simulation-driven 3D engineering tool for:

  • Conceptual engineering

  • Conceptual analysis

  • Model preparation

  • Manufacturing engineering

SpaceClaim Engineer helps engineers interact with CAD geometry in exciting new ways, allowing them to conduct analysis and optimization ahead of the detailed design phase. Without becoming CAD experts, engineers can make dramatic direct edits to 3D models, conceptualise on-the-fly, and communicate quickly and easily with prototyping and manufacturing. This means that engineering teams can finish projects with ease, in a fraction of the time.

CAE/ Model Preparation

CAE production workflows are obstructed because engineers are unable to work directly on models that come to them from a variety of CAD systems. Translated models often provide nearly useless information, or the constraints embedded in feature-based programming systems complicate the model.  This creates needless work as engineers simplify and prepare the model for CAE analysis.

With SpaceClaim’s simulation and analysis-driven design, CAE specialists are empowered to quickly create a simplified representation of a complex model, regardless of its origin. Its model-importing functionality lets users work directly on the model without having to learn the intricacies of a feature-based programming system. The software's data-exchange module fits in existing CAE production workflows, allowing CAE specialists to create and manipulate a 3D model effortlessly.

SpaceClaim's bi-directional associativity with ANSYS, a global innovator of simulation and multiphysics software for optimizing product development processes, provides a combined solution that analysts can use to simplify master CAD models independent of the original CAD system for faster pre-processing and cycle times.  The analyst no longer must depend  on the designer to produce specialized models for analysis.  Running and testing more design iterations results in an improved design, a higher-quality product, and a shorter time to market.
