ANSYS Discovery products



The ANSYS Discovery family of products focuses on rapid 3D design exploration tools, including:

  • Discovery SpaceClaim
  • Discovery Live
  • Discovery AIM

The ANSYS 3D Design products enable CAD modeling and simulation for all design engineers. Since the demands on today’s design engineer to build optimized, lighter and smarter products are greater than ever, using the appropriate design tools is more important than ever.

Each of these tools offer a look into one of the key elements in today's world of 3D deisgn; 3D Modeling, Instant Simulation, and Simulation for Design Engineers.

3D Modeling (discovery SpaceClaim)

ANSYS SpaceClaim

Built on direct modeling technology, ANSYS Discovery SpaceClaim makes creating, repairing or editing geometry easy again, instead of a chore. Whether you are involved in concept modeling, reverse engineering scanned data or preparing a model for manufacturing or simulation, Discovery SpaceClaim’s tools are designed to remove geometry bottlenecks and accelerate the design process.

With it's premise of ease of use and simplicity, you'll find Discovery SpaceClaim to be extremely valuable in tackling small to large modeling problems.

Instant Simulation (Discovery Live)

ANSYS Discovery Live is an environment providing instantaneous simulation, tightly coupled with direct geometry modeling, to enable interactive design exploration. Supporting common fluids, structural, and thermal simulation applications, it is an interactive experience in which you can manipulate geometry, materials types or physics input, then insatntaneuously see changes in performance.

Use Discovery Live to test more design iterations in a shorter amount of time, perform feasibility studies on new concepts and bring products to market faster.

Simulation for Design Engineers (Discovery AIM)

ANSYS Discovery AIM seamlessly integrates design and simulation for all engineers, helping them to explore ideas and concepts in greater depth. Discovery AIM provides a single platform for simulation-driven product development. With guided workflows to promote best practices, you can take advantage of best-in-class ANSYS solver technology to the fullest.

Easy to learn and use, it offers unmatched versatility, speed and precision to optimize designs and take them to the next level. Whether performing thermal, electromagnetic, structural, fluid or various multiphysics combinations, Discovery AIM eliminates the need for any other simulation software for designers.

ANSYS Discovery Bundles

If you're looking to get the most out of your 3D design simulation efforts, check out the ANSYS Discovery product bundles. The Discovery product family was created with the design engineer in mind, including products that help to streamline efforts at each stage of the product design process, and paired well together to improve the efficiency of the process as a whole.

Explore the capabilities of each bundle and discover which simulation package is right for you.

  • Essentials Bundle - includes SpaceClaim direct modeling for part, assembly, and drawing creation. It includes tools for full model repair and editing, translators for most CAD packages and neutral formats, reverse engineering of faceted data, manufacturing, and sheet metal optimization
  • Standard Bundle - ¬†brings the power of SpaceClaim direct modeling with the real-time simulation of ANSYS Discovery Live. You’ll have rapid, upfront design exploration for structural, fluid, thermal, and modal analysis. Discovery Standard also includes advanced STL editing capabilities
  • Ultimate Bundle - contains extensive structural, fluid, thermal, and electromagnetic simulation capabilities through ANSYS AIM and ANSYS Discovery Live. In addition to Discovery Live’s instantaneous simulation environment, you have the power of SpaceClaim direct modeling for a complete 3D CAD modeling tool
