Ansys LS-PrePost

Course Overview

This class covers advanced features in LS-PrePost. The discussed topics will help you become familiar with capabilities like geometry manipulation, meshing, LS-DYNA entity creation, and advanced post-processing.


  • Basic knowledge of LS-PrePost and LS-DYNA is required.

Teaching Method

The teaching method is simple and practical to reduce the barrier to learn advanced topics. The class relies on simple class-room introduction of advanced topics in simple and incremental way to make it easier to understand all topics

Learning Outcome

Following completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Clean and heal geometry
  • Mesh and modify models
  • Create Entities used in LS-DYNA
  • Model check and fix features
  • Use macros and scripting to batch process
