SpaceClaim for CAE

SpaceClaim for CAE

SpaceClaim provides CAE analysts the easiest and fastest tools possible to get geometry ready for simulation. Whether de-featuring CAD geometry, modeling for simulation, or optimizing existing models, SpaceClaim removes the geometry bottleneck, thus freeing engineers to focus on the physics and modeling. By putting simulation users in control of geometry, CAE can drive product development by optimizing models before CAD and validating results post-CAD.

Key Benefits for CFD

  • Prepare tools such as Volume Extract and Enclosure automatically extract necessary volumes in seconds
  • Volume previews help ensure all inlets are capped before extracting volumes
  • Split solids to partition models before meshing
  • Update fluid volumes automatically if changes are needed to optimize a design

Benefits for Structural Analysis

  • Import an existing CAD model designed for manufacture and prepare it for simulation; remove small surfaces, fillets and unnecessary details
  • Mid-surface extraction and creation
  • Beam (line element) and Shell (surface element) Modeling – reduce dimensionality of solids
  • Removal of rounds or small/irrelevant features
  • Improve time-to-result by at least 10x

SpaceClaim empowers structural analysts by letting them clean, simplify, modify, and optimize both imported models, and models created from scratch inside SpaceClaim. Our built in tools such as mid-surface extraction and beam extraction help to simplify models for structural analysis faster, saving hours of time.
