ALTAIR – INSPIRE : optimization software for Additive Manufacturing

Manufacturer : SolidThinking
Sectors : Aerospace, Automotive, Education, Railway, Industry

SolidThinking INSPIRE is a topological optimization software allowing to create and investigate structurally efficient concepts quickly and easily. Traditional structural simulations allow engineers to check if a design will support the required loads. INSPIRE enhances this process by generating a new material layout within a package space using the loads as an input.

Inspire Software

INSPIRE enables design engineers, product designers, and architects unfamiliar with numeric simulation, to make optimal use of the material by placing it only where needed to meet structural requirements.

With INSPIRE, you will be able to

    • Create, modify, and de-feature solid models
    • Generate design concepts that are not only structurally efficient but also manufacturable by choosing your manufacturing process,
    • Customize your material,
    • Choose your optimization options: loads, displacement and stress constraints, objectives (either maximize stiffness or minimize mass), surface smoothing,
    • Analyze the performance of concepts generated by the software using finite element calculations.

Benefits: development time, material consumption and product weight are reduced.

The software is easy to learn and works with existing CAD.

EVOLVE is a 3D modeling and rendering software and is part of the solidThinking Suite. The solution is ideal for the creative community. It completes INSPIRE as you can work on models that have been optimized by the latter.
