New Variational Technology and Concept Modeling Tools Promise to Accelerate Time-to-Market, Encourage Design Innovation and Improve Product Quality
ANSYS DesignXplorer VT(TM) brings the power of variational technology (VT) to the designer's desktop, giving users the ability to visualize the effects of a multitude of simultaneously varying design parameters in a single solve. DesignModeler(TM) is a new concept-modeling tool that gives users a better way to approach the early stages of design for large, CAD-intensive structural projects. ANSYS 7.1 is the first product suite in the computer-aided engineering (CAE) industry to offer these types of capabilities to users.
These robust, easy-to-use tools support engineering design and simulation capabilities early in the product development process, when design innovations are explored and most of the manufacturing costs are determined. Meanwhile, the heart of ANSYS 7.1 - ANSYS Workbench Environment(TM) - offers a newly improved user interface, superior CAD integration, automatic meshing, and access to model parameters and other ANSYS features.
"ANSYS 7.1 provides product engineers with more data to make smarter decisions - and smarter decisions mean better products," said Mike Wheeler, vice president and general manager of the mechanical business at ANSYS. "Our combination of variational technology and concept modeling is an industry first. We are proud to offer complete, integrated solutions that shorten the product engineering process and help bring better products to market faster."

VTANSYS DesignXplorer VT(TM) is a robust optimization solution that provides a broader view and analysis of design concepts. DesignXplorer VT enables users to simultaneously visualize the effects of multiple changes to a product design, rather than having to examine each variation on an individual basis. DesignXplorer VT is embedded within the popular ANSYS product DesignXplorer, part of the ANSYS Simulation Suite.
DesignModeler is a geometry tool that allows designers to rapidly visualize new product design concepts with little or no up-front CAD drawing. Ideal for prototyping or rapidly changing design environments, DesignModeler can speed time-to-market and improve product quality by refining CAD geometry prior to simulation. Plus, if a CAD system is not readily available, DesignModeler can be used to create a model for simulation.
