FEMforAD Addon for Alibre Design
Fully integrated FEA simulation to Alibre Design MCAD software, including elasticity, assembly contact, plasticity, heat transfer (steady-state & transient), modal, dynamic, buckling and thermal stress analyses. For versions 19 to 23 and Atom3D. All meshing, loading, solving and viewing of results is done directly on the Alibre model using Alibre controls to substantially ease the iterative design loop between model and analysis. Default meshing gives quality results but there is also the local mesh control needed for more rigorous design work.
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software embedded within a free solid modeler. Import from a neutral file (STEP or IGES) from any other CAD system, modify the model then perform the analyses you need, and plot/animate the results in color contours.
modeling tools in Hex:
- import step, iges & export step, iges, stl files.
- create sketches then extrude, loft, revolve them to create solids.
- boolean operations; cut, fuse, split, intersect solids.
- translation, rotation, patterning of features.
- fillet, chamfer edges.
