What's New

In 2022 R2, Ansys Forming includes new features: improved mesh adaptivity to reduce CPU time, a new stoning feature to evaluate the surface quality, and a newly added CAD reader that allows users to import native CAD files without converting to IGES files.

Stoning Simulation
New Feature: Stoning

A new functionality called stoning evaluates surface quality to replicate the testing process. This new feature enables users to find surface lows and smoothness in different orientations easily.

CAD Reader Icon
CAD Reader

A newly added CAD reader allows users to import native CAD files (UG, Catia v5. Solidworks, Solidedge, Inventor) without converting to IGES files to streamline the workflow between CAD and simulation.

Mesh Adaptivity
Mesh Adaptivity

Improvements with mesh adaptivity functionality refine the mesh only in specific regions required for the given geometry. This improvement helps reduce the final number of elements resulting in reduced CPU time to save users simulation time without compromising accuracy.

Ansys software is accessible

It's vital to Ansys that all users, including those with disabilities, can access our products. As such, we endeavor to follow accessibility requirements based on the US Access Board (Section 508), Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), and the current format of the Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT).
