Simcenter 3D

The leading integrated 3D CAE solution for CAE engineers – covering everything from multi-body simulation and flow calculations to complex finite element models

Simcenter™ 3D offers a uniform, scalable, open and expandable environment for 3D-CAE with links to construction, 1D-simulation, test and data management. Simcenter 3D accelerates the simulation process by combining and supporting high-class geometry editing, associative simulation modelling and cross-functional solutions with industry know-how. Fast and accurate solvers support analysis of structures, acoustics, flows, thermal problems, kinematics and fiber-reinforced composites as well as optimization and coupled multi-physics-simulations.

Simcenter 3D modules

Simcenter 3D is available as an independent simulation environment or completely in NX – for a seamless integration of CAE and CAD. Simcenter 3D is built in a modular fashion with its pre- and post-processing desktop as a base function. The following modules are available:

Engineering Desktop

Extensive Finite-Element calculations for experienced CAE engineers – the pre- and post-processor is the core of Simcenter 3D

Less time for preparing calculation models – more time for evaluating the results. Fast transition from multi-CAD geometry data to a complete calculation model with the help of unique tools for:

  • CAE geometry editing
  • Extensive networking
  • FEM-building groups management
  • Multi-CAE-environments
  • Post-editing and report creation for simulation results

With Simcenter 3D the time needed for preparing your simulation models is reduced considerably. Simcenter offers advanced networking tools, options for boundary conditions and loads as well as solver intersections that experienced calculation experts expect for high-end calculations. Simcenter 3D sets itself apart from other pre-processors with the method how the intuitive geometry editing, and the associativity of the calculation model and the multi-CAD-data is rendered possible by the first-class geometry core. This tight connection of a powerful geometry core with reliable calculation modelling commands is the key for shortening your simulation process by up to 7 percent in comparison to conventional Finite-Element-Modelling tools.
