Ansys SpaceClaim Meshing (Self-paced Learning Available)

Course Overview

This course is designed for 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 and meshing approaches. Template modeling, a technique to automate hex meshing will also be presented.



  • A good knowledge in Ansys SpaceClaim is required: Introduction to Ansys SpaceClaim course
  • A good knowledge in Geometry decomposition to get 100% hex mesh is a big plus

Target Audience:

Fluids Engineers, Combustion Engineers, Thermal Engineers and Aerodynamics Engineers

Teaching Method:

Lectures and computer practical sessions to validate acquired knowledge. A major emphasis is placed on teaching by software demonstration and on the development of a solution to a design challenge from start to finish. 

Self-paced Learning:

Complete a class on your own schedule at your own pace. Scope is equivalent to Instructor led classes. Includes video lecture, workshops and input files. All our Self-Paced video courses are only available with an Ansys Learning Hub subscription. Register for a subscription using the tab below or contact for more information.

Learning Path


Learning Outcome

  • How to activate the Mesh ribbon in Ansys SpaceClaim, how to use the different related tools and the different display options.
  • How to mesh some parts in SpaceClaim and other parts in Ansys Meshing.
  • How to get 100% hex elements using the mesh tools in Ansys SpaceClaim: split, associate, blend, pull, move...
  • Using the geometry decomposition approach to get 100% hex mesh.
  • Using the bounding box decomposition approach to get 100% hex mesh.
  • How to use the match tool to get periodic mesh.
  • How to use the template modeling to save the blocking from one model and reuse it with another more complex model.
