Altair SimSolid to be showcased at the Atlantic Design & Manufacturing Expo

Attendees to see next generation structural simulation integrated in Onshape environment

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, Canada. (June 1, 2017) – Altair SimSolid Corporation today announced that it will demonstrate Altair SimSolid at the Atlantic Design & Manufacturing Expo 2017, being held June 13-15, 2017 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City. Altair SimSolid will be exhibiting as a partner in the Onshape Agile Design Pavilion, booth #209.

Altair SimSolid is the next generation of structural FEA. It uses new computational methods which allow the rapid solution of large, fully featured, CAD assemblies directly without meshing. Altair SimSolid is the perfect complement to the Onshape cloud- based CAD system. It provides integrated structural analysis that runs in seconds to minutes for both BREP and facet based geometries.

In addition to the Altair SimSolid desktop solution, show attendees will see a sneak preview of Altair SimSolid’s upcoming browser based analysis solution working directly within the Onshape CAD environment.

“We are thrilled to be participating with Onshape at the Atlantic Design & Manufacturing Expo,” said Ken Welch, co-founder and CEO. “Our new cloud based product is an exciting addition to our product offerings. While not done yet, we are looking forward to showing it and getting feedback from the Onshape community.”

“Altair SimSolid is an innovative partner,” said Jon Hirschtick, Onshape CEO. “Their meshless FEA approach is truly changing the way design-analysis is performed. I think it is fantastic that Onshape users no longer have to simplify geometry before running analysis.”
