Here’s a freebie for PTC users looking a taste of finite element analysis (FEA). Algor has released Algor DesignCheck, a first-pass, integrated simulation tool for Pro/Engineer users. Algor DesignCheck is a free, time-limited FEA package that lets engineers perform linear static stress analysis of single-part CAD models. The package’s FEMPRO user interface offers direct CAD/CAE data exchange and full associativity with most CAD solid modelers. Simulation capabilities include linear dynamics, fatigue, CFD, electrostatis, full multiphysics and piping. If Pro/Engineer like what they see, there’s an upgrade path to convert the free Algor license into one that supports full assemblies.
Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
