Altair unveiled Altair SimLab sT, a turnkey solution for the mid-market. Altair SimLab sT enables designers and engineers to leverage multiphysics simulation to explore design proposals, drive innovation and accelerate product development, the company reports. Designed to support manufacturers burdened with increasing complexity amid shrinking development cycles, SimLab sT automates every step of the simulation process through shareable workflows with live bi-directional connections to popular CAD systems.
“Altair SimLab sT is different than anything out there because it allows designers, engineers and simulation experts to make informed, reliable design decisions faster,” said James Dagg, Altair chief technology officer. “Through the intelligent automation of low-value, labor intensive tasks requiring skilled expertise, this technology frees the engineering mind to solve the toughest problems – leveling the playing field for the SMB community to compete at the highest levels.”
With the introduction of SimLab sT, Altair builds upon its core SimLab technology and leadership in automated solid modeling. The solution features the addition of deeply embedded physics solvers, business models, and more.
The new user experience further accelerates simulation cycle time and expands the addressable markets for high-end multiphysics analysis, according to the company. This includes SMB manufacturers and design engineers responsible for developing product families sharing common and variant components.
There's live, bi-directional syncing with popular CAD systems. Users can stay in sync with the latest design level to evaluate performance and explore proposals with live connections to parametric CAD systems including CATIA, Pro/E, Siemens NX and SolidWorks.
It features embedded physics solvers that enable CAD-to-simulation in minutes. The introduction of embedded physics solvers for statics, dynamics, heat transfer, fluid flow and electromagnetics provides a turnkey solution to accelerate multiphysics analyses, coupled simulations, and DOE studies from days and weeks to minutes and hours.
SimLab sT is immediately available through Altair’s solidThinking and HyperWorks suite offerings. With distinct advantages and price points, customers now have the ability to select the licensing model that enables the right set of simulation capabilities at the best value to their organization.
solidThinking Units (sTU’s) licensing option provides enterprise access to SimLab sT and all of the products available through the solidThinking suite offering.
HyperWorks Units (HWU’s) licensing option provides enterprise access to SimLab sT as well as the ability to access all Altair products available through the HyperWorks and solidThinking suite offerings. This licensing option also includes the broadest set of direct CAE readers to run third-party solvers with Simlab and access to more than 150 Altair Partner Alliance applications.
