MSC Software has updated its MSC Apex CAE platform. This version of of the software includes an enhanced Apex Modeler and the second release of the Apex Structures add-on.
The updated Apex Modeler now has:
- An incremental workflow to create midsurface geometry that can speed the process by 10x. It involved the creation and pre-configuration of pairs that act as guides for midsurface extraction and creation.
- Midsurface extraction methods that are available for a larger range of thin structures composed of injection molded plastics, metals and composite materials.
- Capability to rapidly construct solid element and surface meshes and added support for hex meshing and mesh seed point constraints.
