The versatile 3D modelling capability of Ansys SpaceClaim transforms an engineering organisations business by empowering all engineers, not just CAD users, to create and manipulate precise 3D models.
Today's Engineering Challenge is to extend the value of 3D to everyday engineering communications
When working with existing CAD models, you can de-feature and simplify geometry with automated, easy-to-learn tools. Ansys SpaceClaim is ideal for engineers who don’t have time for heavy CAD tools, but want and need to get 3D answers fast.
Reverse EngineeringSpaceClaim's ability to handle scan data (STL, OBJ etc) and take it back to CAD is superb
Sheet Metal DesignBest in class sheet metal tool for designing or modifying 3D models for manufacture.
3D Printing/ Faceted data PreparationCreate and modify faceted data formats (STL/OBJ etc.) for 3D printing.
Simulation & AnalysisEasily simplify repair models and then extract mid-surfaces and volumes for detailed analysis.
CAD for Machinists/CNCIn a CNC environment, the CAD data you receive will typically be the finished design. Let SpaceClaim help modify this for your own purposes
CAD Translation & RepairImport the majority of CAD formats into SpaceClaim and export to your choice. Easily repair corrupt data with dedicated tools
Tooling, Pattern and Core DesignExtract split lines and volumes from parts to quickly create patterns and tools for casting/moulding purposes.
SpaceClaim helps engineers interact with CAD geometry in exciting new ways. Any engineer can make dramatic edits to models, conceptualize on-the-fly, and communicate quickly and easily with colleagues, customers, and suppliers.
Engineering teams can finish projects with ease, in a fraction of the time. Sales and business development groups can win more business by using SpaceClaim to communicate their proposals in compelling and realistic 3D.
With it’s origins in the Boston MIT, the first commercial release of SpaceClaim was in 2008, thus it is a very mature and stable solution. SpaceClaim’s USP is direct modelling. There are several solutions that deploy the straight forward Direct Modelling approach to CAD (e.g. Co-Create, Creo Elements) and SpaceClaim leads the way.
With SpaceClaim it does not matter whether you create geometry from scratch or import CAD geometry, it treats it the same and you continue to edit/add to it for your own purposes. Thus for a “manufacture to order” business – SpaceClaim is a perfect fit. In 2016 SpaceClaim Corporation was acquired by Ansys, who continue to drive this great solution forward.
