Ansys SpaceClaim’s unique user interface, modeling technology and versatile tool set help you create and modify imported 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. Ansys SpaceClaim is ideal for engineers who don’t have time for heavy CAD tools, but want and need to get 3D answers fast.
Reduce simulation prep time
SpaceClaim provides analysts with tools for accelerating geometry preparation for simulation. Whether de-featuring CAD models, extracting fluid domains, or simplifying a model to beam and shell elements, SpaceClaim removes geometry bottlenecks freeing analysts to focus on their simulations. With control of geometry, analysts can enable simulation-driven design, eliminate delays between design teams and analysts, and easily understand how design changes impact results.

Model Prep for Simulation
Simplify models in minutes instead of hours. Quickly modify, optimize and parameterize any CAD file to reduce mesh complexity and reduce simulation solve time.
Design and Concept Modeling
Create parts, assemblies and drawings. Open, repair and edit any CAD file. SpaceClaim’s direct modeling technology is faster, easier and more flexible than any other 3D modeling tool.
SpaceClaim allows users to go from faceted or scanned geometry back to solid CAD. Use intuitive and powerful tools to autosurface simple or complex faceted data, build intricate parts or recreate fixtures quickly and efficiently.
Make any 3D file print-ready. Analyze and repair dirty or corrupt faceted data, or quickly create, edit and prepare optimized models for 3D printing.
Algoryx Momentum Add-In
Algoryx Momentum injects physical motion to your models to account for unexpected motion, especially where there are contacts, friction and gaps. Multibody systems dynamics (MBSD) simulation is needed to check that a mechanical device will behave as expected.
Discovery SpaceClaim's automated repair tools quickly heal dirty and incomplete CAD files, accelerating your time to mesh.
Model Prep for Manufacturing
Prepare models for manufacturing steps and minimize machining time. Edit any CAD file, repair corrupt or difficult CAD files, and design jigs and fixtures faster than ever before.
