The topology optimization available to everyone
solidThinking Inspire® enables design engineers, product designers, and architects to create and investigate structurally efficient concepts quickly and easily. Traditional structural simulations allow engineers to check if a design will support the required loads. Inspire enhances this process by generating a new material layout within a package space using the loads as an input. The software is easy to learn and works with existing CAD tools to help design structural parts right the first time, reducing costs, development time, material consumption, and product weight.
Generate concepts which meet structural performance requirements at the beginning of the design cycle. This results in significant time savings over the traditional approach of design, validate, redesign to meet structural requirements.
Inspire makes it easy to perform “what-if”scenarios where package space, connections,load conditions, and shape controls canbe modified. Reviewing the resulting concepts often reveals valuable insights.
Inspire makes efficient use of material, only placing it where required to satisfy structural performance requirements. Reduced design weight leads to material cost savings, performance improvements and reduced shipping costs.
How does SolidThinking Inspire work?
Given the package space and loading conditions for a design problem, Inspire quickly generates the ideal shape.
Using Inspire typically results in lighter designs and helps eliminate structural design problems.
Start with the solution and shorten time to market
Traditionally new designs are either started on a “napkin sketch”, or from scratch within the CAD tool, or from using a design engineers knowledge or intuition based on their past experience. The problem is that all of these approaches involve trial and error, which can significantly extend the product development process.
Inspire provides you with the mathematically correct answer for your shape at the very start of the design process. This ensures you have the best possible starting point for your design, eliminating the trial and error traditionally found in the product development process.
At the same time, it ensures you have the most efficient shape possible for your design.
How do you work with solidThinking Inspire?
Generating the ideal part concept in Inspire is quick and easy. View the solidThinking Inspire workflow below.
Who uses solidThinking Inspire?
A diverse set of customers from various industry verticals have globally adopted Inspire for their upfront concept design work. Industries include automotive, aerospace, defense, architecture, heavy equipment, electronics, consumer products, and so on.
One of the big reasons we have seen such a quick adoption of Inspire at these large OEM accounts is due to the fact that these companies are all interested in reducing weight, improving product performance, and speeding up their product development process. And, Inspire is an integral piece to that solution.
