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.
This short video shows a quick example of using Apex to prep a model for Marc/Mentat where we want a hexahedral mesh for modelling a rubber component using the reduced integration Hermann element formulation, but creating that mesh in Mentat would take many hours.
If you are using Marc/Mentat under the MSC One token licensing scheme you already have the 9 tokens needed to run MSC Apex.
If you are not using MSC One tokens, or are using a non-MSC solver - get in touch with DTE to talk about just how little it would cost to add Apex to your arsenal of tools, and enquire about a free trial license to see what benefits it would bring.
