Professional 3D modeling and simulation tool

5 2 years ago

Comments: 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.

ANSYS for all Engineering fields

5 2 years ago

Comments: I used this software for my Master's degree research. it provided me with satisfactory results and helped to save a lot of my time. these results were compared with experimental results and they almost matched.

Pros:

First of all this software is not for specific engineering it can be used by every engineering department. it contains different types of tools that can fulfill the requirements of all engineering fields. it is also a user-friendly software and complete user guidance is available. This software has the ability to accept geometries designed in other softwares. this software basically consists of four different steps. first is a Modular design where the user can design his/her own geometry. The second step consists of meshing where geometry is divided into smaller portions to apply the required equation solvers. the third step is setup where boundary conditions are applied. the last step contains results where it can be analyzed through tabular or graphical representation.

Cons:

This software is very heavy and requires a powerful computing power for accurate results. it crushes during simulations after which you will have to restart all of your work.

Simulation and designing on Ansys space claim

5 2 weeks ago New

Comments: Really nice .. I could do my work smoothly so now I’m recommending it to others by

Pros:

It’s very friendly use and it’s really smooth beside that it doesn’t require high computation power as as advance software

Cons:

The Ansys meshing quality is not 100% I still achieve good results but not very accurate but this could be solved by trying other meshing tools inside Ansys

This is a wonderful suite to perform precise simulation and get accurate results with multiple cores

3 3 years ago

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.
