CAD to Mesh Challenge

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Everyone likes a challenge! At MSC we believe that challenges bring out your best. Your best people – Your best process – Your best tools. MSC Apex Modeler is a CAE-specific direct modeling & meshing solution that streamlines CAD clean-up, simplification & meshing workflow. We are so confident in its ability to accelerate your CAD to Mesh (C2M) performance were willing to put our money where our mouth is.

MSC is offering to conduct a C2M challenge on your parts at 50% off. That’s right – we’ll take your CAD geometry and deliver back to you mid-surfaced meshed parts of comparable quality at a cost savings of 50% of your current expense. This offer is only available in Canada and the United States.

The Challenge

Simple – give us your dirtiest, ugliest looking CAD parts or your most difficult geometry and challenge us to outperform your current process. We will deliver a mid-surfaced meshed part in a fraction of the time and cost. You have nothing to lose – except 50% of what you’re spending today!

MSC Apex

As another awarding winning product from MSC, Apex is the world’s first computational parts based CAE system. It is transforming the way engineers perform simulation by reducing critical CAE modeling and process time from days to hours.

The table below showcases the actual productivity gains achieved from CAD to Mesh for an aviation bulkhead. The steps performed included CAD import, geometry clean up, extraction of mid-surfaces, connection of separate surfaces, meshing, and assignment of thicknesses and offsets.
