Using Sensors to Latch a Mechanism
Sometimes with a mechanism simulation you need to trigger a change in the mechanism when an event such as a latch engaging to stop a component from moving any further. You can model the geometry and use a contact model to capture the physical engagement of the geometry, but this can add to your simulation run time and require a lot of tuning to get working happily.
Generate output with MSC Apex
Creating Shear Force and Bending Moment diagrams for MSC Software's Nastran can be less than straightforward with the older tools.
MSC Apex has an elegant way of generating this output using existing results that is demonstrated in this short video.
Thermal and Condensation Simulation
We are getting more and more interest in the Cradle CFD products from MSC Software, particularly scSTREAM due to its ease of use and powerful capabilities around flow, thermal and condensation simulation which make it ideal for engineers working in the battery charging arena.
Discover How You Can Weather the Unexpected with SOLIDWORKS and 3DEXPERIENCE Works
If this last year has taught us anything it's that life is unpredictable and requires flexibility. When disruptions happen, how do maintain your team's productivity when all your tools, data, and people are tied to the desktop?
MSC Apex is MSC software’s new GUI environment. It’s been around for a few years and development is progressing steadily.
While it does an amazing job with model preparation broad support for analysis solutions is still evolving.
Space Sector Benefits
A key area for our customers in the Space sector is around Random Response analysis which is a requirement for predicting the damage caused during the launch event by the launch agencies.
Apex supports the underlying frequency response analysis but full support for pre-and post-processing the Random element for Nastran is not available as of the 2021.2 release.
What is 3DEXPERIENCE®? What is ‘The Platform’? What is PLM?
Actran, from MSC Software, is an acoustics simulation software, originally designed for predicting noise within, and around vehicles, such as cars and aircraft.
MSC Apex is first and foremost a pre/post processor for Nastran but that doesn’t stop users of other solver technologies from taking advantage of the model preparation and meshing capability.
SOLIDWORKS and 3DEXPERIENCE® Works whitepapers, reference guides, datasheets, how-to videos and ebooks.

"Change is certainly coming and there’s much to learn from manufacturing for some areas of AEC"
Dale Sinclair, AECOM
Desktop Engineering recently concluded its annual BeyondBIM virtual event with a broad consensus that in the future the construction industry needs to grasp new technologies to drive improved processes, together with recognising the need to train in these new methods.
