Introduction to Ansys SpaceClaim for FEA (Self-paced Learning Available)

Course Overview

This course is designed for FEA users of Ansys SpaceClaim that would like to benefit from its Meshing capabilities. SpaceClaim Meshing uses the Mesh ribbon in Ansys SpaceClaim to generate the mesh on some or all the parts of your geometry before importing the model into Ansys Mechanical for solver simulation. With this SpaceClaim Meshing tool, you will be able to get 100% hex mesh on complicated CAD geometries. You will be introduced to the different tools and block types. You will also learn the different meshing approaches. Finally, template modeling, a technique to automate hex meshing, will be presented.


This course is an introductory course to Ansys SpaceClaim for FEA users, no specific prerequisites are requested

Target Audience

Mechanical engineers, design engineers, and designers working within any discipline who want to take their knowledge of Ansys Mechanical to the next level.

Teaching Method

Lectures and computer practical sessions to validate acquired knowledge. A training certificate is provided to all attendees who complete the course.

Learning Outcome

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

  • Create a new geometry from scratch in Ansys SpaceClaim
  • Repair an imported geometry in Ansys SpaceClaim
  • Create spot welds for an FEA analysis in Ansys Mechanical
  • Using the Midsurface tool to simplify the thin models and mesh with shell elements
  • Extracting then beams using Beam Extract tool
  • Create Named Selections and parameters in Ansys SpaceClaim
  • Import the geometry to Ansys Workbench with the Named Selections and the Parameters
