solidThinking Inspire empowers design engineers, product designers, and architects to leverage Simulation-driven design by creating and investigating structurally efficient concepts quickly and easily. This can lead to reduced costs, development time, material consumption, and product weight.
The new featured-packed release of solidThinking Inspire 2018 introduces many groundbreaking new features including the ability to:
- Save weight by generating optimized Lattice and mixed Solid and Lattice structures with Inspire’s new Lattice Visualization, Optimization, and .stl export.
- Design with Additive Manufacturing in mind with Overhang shape controls allowing users to eliminate overhangs to create a more self-supporting structure. This helps minimize the need to add support structures during the printing process.
- Create full CAD and manufacturing ready geometries post simulation with the PolyNURBS Fit tool that automatically fits a PolyNURBS to an optimized shape.
