New Generation Pre- and Post-Processing Solution Combines Technologies From ANSYS, Inc. and ICEM CFD Engineering to Serve Mechanical Industry
CANONSBURG, Pa., Nov. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- ANSYS®, Inc. (Nasdaq: ANSS - news), the global innovator of simulation software and technologies aimed at optimizing product development processes, today announced AI*Environment(TM), a new generation of pre- and post-processing solutions for the mechanical engineering industry.
AI*Environment combines ICEM CFD Engineering's pre- and post-processor technologies with ANSYS, Inc.'s simulation expertise. Aimed at the computer- aided engineering community, AI*Environment allows modeling and meshing for structural, thermal and CFD projects and supports CAD interfaces with CATIA, Pro/Engineer, SDRC IDEAS, Solid Works and Unigraphics. The new solution enables users to build and prepare models within their CAD system that can be exported directly to AI*Environment for meshing. AI*Environment provides links to various analysis solvers and supports direct CAD meshing for surfaces and solid models in addition to batch or interactive assemblies.
"AI*Environment is a true leader in CAD-based meshing and post-processing technology to address the needs of mechanical engineers. This solution provides the state-of-the-art geometry, input, repair and meshing tools necessary to solve the most complex meshing issues," stated Michael Wheeler, vice president of marketing for ANSYS, Inc. "ANSYS, Inc. continues to provide technologically advanced solutions needed to support the engineering design process and decrease the associated development costs."
AI*Environment is expected to ship in early 2002.
