ANSYS SpaceClaim

Multi-Purpose 3-D modeling for faster engineering results

ANSYS SpaceClaim is a multipurpose 3-D modeling application providing efficient solutions to common modeling tasks. Built on the direct modeling technology, SpaceClaim removes geometry problems associated with various 3-D CAD operations, such as design or concept modeling, repair of translated CAD files, general model defeaturing, and complete model editing. With it's premise of ease of use and simplicity, you'll find SpaceClaim to be extremely valuable in tackling small to large modeling problems.

A new way of 3-D Modeling
SpaceClaim’s unique user interface, modeling technology and versatile toolset enables you to easily create and modify geometry without the complexity associated with traditional CAD systems. When working with existing CAD models, you can de-feature and simplify geometry with automated, easy-to-learn tools. SpaceClaim is ideal for engineers who don’t have time for heavy CAD tools but want and need to get fast answers using 3-D.

Ease of Use
We believe that technology should work for you, not the other way around. Technology should make your job easier, not more complicated. SpaceClaim enables you to create, edit, or repair geometry without worrying about underlying technology. With SpaceClaim, working with 3-D modeling software becomes fast, easy, flexible, and rewarding, no matter where in the workflow you need it. Regardless of a model’s origin, you can open the file in SpaceClaim and add or subtract geometry in any way you visualize. With streamlined commands and workflows, operations that previously took hours can be completed in minutes. You’ll find learning SpaceClaim easy -- weeks instead of months – and realize a return on your investment that's faster than expected.

Capabilities

Rapid Geometry Creation

SpaceClaim excels at the rapid creation of any 3-D geometry. Streamlined tools and workflows mean in seconds you can create rough concepts, detailed designs, tooling/fixtures, CAE related geometry, or reverse engineer an STL file into a clean 3D CAD model.

Rapid Geometry Creation Capability
STL File Manipulation

With SpaceClaim’s faceted data editing tools you can inquire, repair, and optimize STL files for downstream use such as 3-D printing and reverse engineering.

STL File Manipulation Capability
Model Repair

SpaceClaim's automated repair tools quickly heal dirty and incomplete CAD files, accelerating your time to mesh.

Model Repair Capability
Simple Tools

With only 4 tools that perform 80% of the common modeling tasks, you’ll find SpaceClaim the easiest CAD tool you’ll ever learn.

Simple Tools Capability
CAD Import and Editing

Open and edit CAD files for concept design, manufacturing, 3D printing, reverse engineering and simulation. The removal, simplification or editing of complex features are no problem for SpaceClaim's modifying and defeaturing tools. It’s easy to change geometry on the fly.

CAD Import and Editing Capability
Versatility

You can think of SpaceClaim as a multipurpose 3-D modeler. Wherever 3-D data is or could be used, SpaceClaim offers efficiency gains for everyone involved.
