Introduction to ANSYS DesignModeler
All engineering simulation starts with geometry to represent the design. This could be a solid component for a structural analysis or the air volume for a fluid or electromagnetic study. ANSYS DesignModeler handles everything from creating such geometry from scratch to importing, cleaning up and modifying geometry from existing CAD models. ANSYS DesignModeler has connections to all major CAD systems, allowing seamless transfer of existing data.
Whether importing an existing CAD model or building one, the ANSYS DesignModeler product is fully parametric. Combine this with parametric meshing and parametric solver setup within the ANSYS Workbench platform and the same geometry can be used for multiple design variations.
Course Aim: This course teaches attendees how to effectively use ANSYS DesignModeler to create and modify geometry in preparation for CFD or FEA analysis.
Course Contents: Topics included in the training are:
- The ANSYS Workbench framework and the ANSYS DesignModeler graphical user interface
- Creating planes and sketches
- 3D modeling
- Concept modeling
- CAD import and geometry cleanup
- CAD connections
Lectures are followed by tutorials using the software.
Prerequisites: A technical education and background is recommended but an engineering degree is not required. No previous experience in any CFD/FEA package is needed.
Recommended follow on courses: Introduction to ANSYS Meshing and a course in the ANSYS Solver that is intended to be used.
