The Optimus workflow editor allows to parameterize engineering models without the need to deal with complex file syntax. Optimus also makes it easy on the user to automate design variable substitution and simulation results extraction. Launching and executing the different simulation tools is embedded in the process without the need for any user programming.
ANSYS Electronics Desktop automates the creation of a workflow that contains any ANSYS Electronics Desktop entry. With this interface, the analyst interacts with ANSYS design parameters and analysis results from Optimus. From a unique Optimus graphical interface, the analyst works through parametric CAD geometry to the selection of post-processing analysis results parameterization.
Grasshopper driver automates the use of Grasshopper as a component of an Optimus workflow. It allows users to access all Grasshopper -defined design parameters (*.ghx file) and the parameters of the simulation setup and submit the updated files to Rhinoceros 3D.
HDF stands for Hierarchical Data Format and is a set of file formats for storing and managing data. It supports an unlimited variety of datatypes, and is designed for flexible and efficient I/O and for high volume and complex data. HDF is supported by many commercial and non-commercial software platforms (e.g. MATLAB, Nastran). The current version of the format is HDF5.
MotorCAD driver automates the use of MotorCAD as a component of an Optimus workflow. It allows users to access all MotorCAD-defined design parameters and design outputs in all MotorCAD Part Geometry and the parameters of the simulation setup (*.mot file).
Nastran is a multidisciplinary structural analysis application used by engineers to perform static, dynamic, and thermal analysis across the linear and nonlinear domains, complemented with automated structural optimization and award winning embedded fatigue analysis technologies, all enabled by high performance computing.
SOLIDWORKS solutions cover all aspects of the product development process with a seamless, integrated workflow. Designers and engineers can span multiple disciplines with ease, shortening the design cycle, increasing productivity and delivering innovative products to market faster.
