Ansys SpaceClaim Webinar Series

Ansys SpaceClaim delivers a highly unique user interface and modeling technology that enables you to generate and modify imported geometry — eliminating the complexity associated with traditional CAD systems. As you work with existing CAD models, SpaceClaim helps you de-feature and simplify geometry with automated user-friendly tools. If you don’t have time for heavy CAD tools, but need to get 3D answers fast, SpaceClaim delivers your ideal solution.

In this webinar series, we will highlight how you can leverage SpaceClaim for identifying and addressing costly CAD challenges that can delay manufacturing. We will also focus on how SpaceClaim helps you execute fast and easy conceptual designs. Additionally, we will discuss how you can use SpaceClaim as a parametric CAD tool and how you can take your designs to the next level by using SpaceClaim’s unique direct modeling creation and editing technology.

Leveraging Ansys SpaceClaim for Manufacturing

September 9, 2020
11 AM EST / 3 PM GMT

In today’s fast-paced market, products must be designed and manufactured as quickly as possible to have a competitive advantage. There is often a significant bottleneck between designing, prototyping and manufacturing a new product. For example, CAD models might become corrupted during transfer between software systems or a manufacturer might need to modify operations to best manufacture the product. Ansys SpaceClaim’s CAD-neutral direct modeling enables users across all skill levels to import any CAD model, perform repairs and modifications and forward it downstream to CAM, sheet metal benders and 3D printers. Join us to learn how SpaceClaim can help save you time by identifying and addressing costly CAD challenges that can delay production.

  • Learn how to open, edit, repair and prepare parts from any CAD system or online library.
  • Discover how to easily prepare models for machining jig, fixture, tooling and mold designs.
  • Understand how to quickly create or import sheet metal geometry and unfold to flat patterns for manufacturing.
  • Receive expert insights on creating and importing STL models and modifying and optimizing them for additive manufacturing.

Fast & Easy Concept Designs with Ansys SpaceClaim

October 1, 2020
11 AM EST / 3 PM GMT

When developing new designs, speed, ease of use and performance insights are critical to a successful product launch. Very few 3D engineering tools are fast, easy and powerful, resulting in tradeoffs or the use of multiple software. This webinar explores Ansys SpaceClaim’s flexible direct editing feature that helps you rapidly move your design ideas into a user-friendly 3D environment. Additionally, we discuss how you can leverage SpaceClaim to forecast assembly and mechanism performance — factoring in friction and material properties gravity — providing you with an in-depth understanding of any design challenges ahead. Lastly, we will highlight how Ansys Discovery performs real-time simulation of structural loading trends, thermal transfer, modal response, fluid behavior and topology optimizations to lightweight and improve the performance of the design. Don’t miss out on how you can accelerate your conceptual design phase with these cutting-edge Ansys tools.

  • Learn how to easily create and edit parts, assemblies and drawings all in one user interface (UI).
  • Understand how to open, repair and edit files from neutral and native CAD systems.
  • Discover how to identify and fix mechanism issues using Algoryx Momentum’s rigid body dynamics add-on feature.
  • Receive expert insights on rapidly exploring multiple design concepts with real-time interactive simulation.

Spaceclaim Webinar 2 

Using Ansys SpaceClaim as a Parametric CAD Tool

November 3, 2020
11 AM EST / 3 PM GMT

Parameters in feature-based CAD systems are lost when transferred to another program or to a neutral format. As a result, the models are no longer parametric. Ansys SpaceClaim overcomes this hurdle with its direct editing and CAD-neutral architecture that enables parametric changes to any file type, regardless of a model’s history.

This webinar explores SpaceClaim’s ability to add constraints and parameters to 2D sketched geometry, which can be saved and are replayable with a block record function. Learn how SpaceClaim’s hybrid modeling technology combines years of direct modeling development with a reliable technique for constraining, parameterizing and replaying the required steps for model creation.

  • Learn how to easily create a parametric model with a feature/history tree.
  • Receive expert tips on adding parameters to import generic and native CAD files.
  • Discover how you can create traditional parameters or advanced measurements.
  • Understand new sketch constraints and how block recording mimics historical parameter modeling.
