Clients typically supply CAD files of solid geometry that often contain many details that are not relevant to the analysis. Engrana uses ANSYS SpaceClaim to de-feature and simplify the solid geometry, as well as to decompose the geometry in order to produce high-quality hex-dominant meshes. Additionally, ANSYS SpaceClaim is used to extract flow volumes from the solid geometry.

What people say...
         “In less than two hours of loading the SpaceClaim software, I was able to import a customer supplied and deeply flawed solid model and repair all of the problem areas.”
