Seminars on Streamlining the path from CAD Assembly Data to CAE Simulations

Surface Wrapping Seminar: Your process from complex 3D CAD to successful CAE

October 25 Detroit • October 30 Seattle • November 1 Dallas
November 13 Chicago • December 4 Los Angeles • December 6 San Francisco • March 6 Montreal


Do you spend hours or days preparing large, complex 3D CAD for FEA/CFD/CAE simulation?  Do you have problems with double or intersecting surfaces, closing holes, defeaturing or obtaining the ‘wetted’ surface?  CD-adapco would like to invite you to a seminar on how, by using fast and automatic surface wrapping technology, you can significantly reduce the tedious and time consuming work involved in preparing CAD for simulation.

What is Surface Wrapping?
Surface Wrapping: Oil Rig
CD-adapco’s surface wrapper, now in its 3rd generation, works by ‘shrink-wrapping’ a high-quality tessellated surface mesh onto the geometry: closing holes, removing double surfaces, defeaturing or retaining detail as required.  Starting from a complex CAD assembly, it provides a high-quality surface mesh in minutes.  When introduced into existing CAE processes, the surface wrapper cuts weeks of CAD clean-up work.  It is this time and cost saving that has motivated world-leading aerospace and automotive OEMs to use it as a precursor to all their FEA and CFD work.

DaimlerChrysler’s Team Leader of Vehicle Development described CD-adapco’s surface wrapper as “the most automatic approach that exists. It has saved us weeks of clean-up when carrying out our air flow studies and provides us with significant time and cost savings.


Who should attend?

  • Engineers involved in CAE simulation
  • Functional Managers
  • Product Engineering Analysts

What can you expect?
The seminar provides an opportunity for you to see the surface wrapper in action.  In the afternoon there’ll be a hands-on session for you to check out the wrapper for yourself; if you are able to bring along an example CAD part or assembly to test the wrapper with, please do. It also provides a forum for experts from CD-adapco to share their expertise and experience at optimising simulation processes with you, and for you to network with other CAE professionals. 

Where and when?
The seminar will begin at 09:30am and will run until 4:00pm.  If you would like to find out more, but can’t make this date, please let us know as there may be another seminar that is convenient.
