MSC Apex Iberian Lynx is the world's first computational parts based CAE system that serves as the platform for a broad range of physics and applications that MSC Software will introduce over time. MSC Apex transforms the way engineers perform simulation by reducing critical CAE modelling and process time from days to hours. The platform delivers innovative technology that enables predictive product development in the earlier stages of design where it is critical in saving time and money.
MSC Apex Modeler is a CAE specific direct
modeling and meshing solution that streamlines CAD clean-up,
simplification and meshing workflow. The solution features
sophisticated and interactive tools that are easy to use and easy
- Direct Modeling Direct: modeling allows users to create and edit geometry interactively. Simply select the entities of interest, such as a face, edge or vertex, and push, pull, or drag to implement any modifications. Direct Modeling is complemented with built in meshing technology.
- Direct Modeling and Meshing: For models that have already been meshed and require further geometry modification, use any of the Direct Modeling or Geometry Clean-up/ Repair tools and the mesh will be immediately regenerated.
- Easy to Use, Easy to Learn: MSC Apex is designed to have multi-purpose tools so as to make the application easy to use. It also features numerous learning aids such as tutorials, video based documentation, workflow and at-mouse instructions which promotes single day productivity.
MSC Apex Structures is an end-to-end simulation solution that expands upon MSC Apex Modeler functionality with capabilities for linear structural analysis.
MSC Apex Structures packages a user interface for scenario definition and results postprocessing, as well as integrated solver methods. This solution is unique in that it combines computational parts and assemblies technology with a generative framework, which enables interactive and incremental analysis.
The integration of the user interface with solver methods gives the user a unique ability to interactively and incrementally validate that FEM models are solver ready. At the user’s demand, a series of solver checks can be run against individual parts and assemblies and the model diagnostics are reported in the Analysis Readiness panel. This Incremental Validation is a radical departure from the very time consuming traditional approach where pre/post processor and solver are separate.
In addition, with Computational Parts and Assemblies, MSC Apex Structures is a true partsbased solution, where each part behavioral representation (Stiffness, mass, and damping) can be pre-computed and stored independently. This approach is especially efficient when combined with the MSC Apex generative framework, as the solver execution will only re-compute behavioral representations for parts that have changed since the last solver execution. We call this Incremental Solving. This new solver architecture is especially efficient in the context of trade studies.
