Native CAD Import & Robust Meshing

Native, bidirectional CAD connectivity and automatic meshing with advanced options are provided through the ANSYS Workbench platform. This environment connects with major CAD systems and allows import from most neutral geometry formats.

ANSYS Workbench also provides a wide range of highly robust and automated physics-based meshing tools, including tetrahedral, pure hexahedral, mixed hex/tet/pyramid, inflation layers and high-quality surface meshes. Users have the ability to control many advanced meshing options such as body, surface or edge sizing controls, sphere of influence, inflation layer meshing, mesh defeaturing tolerances, and much more.
