iSIGHT-FD manages the computer software required to execute simulation-based design processes, including commercial CAD/CAE software, internally developed programs, and Excel spreadsheets. The software enables the rapid integration of these programs and automates their execution to accelerate the evaluation of many more design alternatives. It provides design exploration and optimization technology to help the user find better designs than those that can be found manually. Inside of this framework, a set of interoperable CAD and CAE components is used to define how changes in the geometry affect the product performance. In the past year Engineous worked with several of its partners to create a seamless and automated process. We will illustrate how to setup and drive geometric changes in CAD models using the translation technologies component in iSIGHT-FD. The user can set loads & boundary conditions on the part/assembly that move with the geometric modifications. The changed geometry with loads & boundary conditions can be automatically meshed and analyzed with FEM solvers and pre/postprocessors. The user is allowed to store and view parametric and non-parametric results for every run. These 3D CAE & CAD results can then be easily embedded into Microsoft office.
