ANSYS Discovery Live

Every engineer deserves the power of Discovery

ANSYS Discovery Live provides instantaneous 3D simulation, tightly coupled with direct geometry modeling, to enable interactive design exploration and rapid product innovation. It is an interactive experience in which you can manipulate geometry, materials types or physics inputs, then instantaneously see changes in performance.

Use Discovery Live to test more design iterations in a shorter amount of time, perform feasibility studies on new concepts and bring products to market faster.

ANSYS Discovery Live seamlessly aligns with the 3D Design family of products and complements ANSYS Discovery SpaceClaim and ANSYS Discovery AIM.
