What is Discovery Live?
Discovery Live is dramatically easier to use than any other simulation tool. See how it can transform your design process.
Watch as the interactive geometry feature in Discovery Live provides instant feedback about product performance.
With Discovery Live you can easily change input parameters, switch between physics solutions and immediately evaluate all the what-ifs of your design.
See only what you want — in the way you want to see it — with Discovery Live's interactive rendering capability.
Customer Case Study — TENTECH LLC
Watch as our engineering services customer uses Discovery Live to study design and 3D printing options for a lightweight, onboard computer cover — before committing time and dollars to the project.
Lightweighting in Discovery Live
See how Discovery Live helps optimize strength and weight in structural models.
What if you could make a simple or complex change directly on a 3D model, and instantly know the impact of that change? Engineers no longer need to wait for geometry modification, re-meshing and resolving. Discovery Live begins re-computing results immediately, without a need to start over.
Gain immediate insight when a load is suddenly increased, a material is changed or an input velocity drops to zero. Set up multiple physics on the same model and eliminate unnecessary geometry preparation.
As quickly as you generate questions, Discovery Live has answers ready for viewing. In a fluids application, for example, no other engineering simulation tool allows you to adjust the location, rate and size of a particle stream in one instant, then immediately switch to a composite view and see maximum pressures throughout the model.
