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.

Nastran/Patran users who have MSC One tokens already have access to MSC Apex within their toolset, but if you would like to talk about getting access otherwise, please get in touch and we can talk you through the options.
