StressCheck®‘s add-on Utilities include the latest CAD translators and advanced automatic meshing tools, in addition to the native Parasolid CAD modeler and automatic meshing tools available in StressCheck® Core, to save you time and efforts in the FEA modeling process.
Fully functional CAD translators make the transition from your CAD tool to StressCheck® seamless, while advanced automeshing functions efficiently refine at local details.
MeshSim Advanced Module
The MeshSim Advanced automeshing utility is a powerful addition to 3D StressCheck® automeshing. This module enables boundary layer meshing for adding additional layers of elements around cracks, holes and fillets, as well as extrusion meshing for constant-thickness parts. Typically paired with the Fracture Mechanics module.
StressCheck® supports the latest CATIA v4, v5 and v6 3D Interop library formats.
StressCheck® supports the latest IGES 3D Interop library formats.
Creo (Pro/E) Translator
StressCheck® supports the latest Creo (Pro/E) 3D Interop Libraries. Learn more about the versions and formats supported.
StressCheck® supports the latest STEP 3D Interop Libraries. Learn more about the versions and formats supported.
Recent News & Events
The finite element method is used by engineers daily in the design/assessment of components and structures. The number of engineers using such tools is increasing and will increase further with the so-called democratisation of simulation. However, whilst the method might appear easy to use, with highly effective graphical user interfaces, the fundamental fact is that it is approximate and can produce significant errors in the hands of the inexperienced engineer. These errors, if undetected, can compromise a design to such an extent that it becomes unfit for purpose or, even, unsafe. The way to avoid such finite element malpractice is through the application of sound simulation governance.
