File Import for CATIA®V5
AUTOMOTIVE ENGINEERING: The COMSOL LiveLink for Inventor enables this geometry of an exhaust manifold to be modeled.
File Import for CATIA®V5 extends the functionality of the CAD Import Module which allows for all major CAD ﬁle formats to be brought directly into the COMSOL Desktop where you can simulate your design accurately using real-world multiphysics simulations. By including the Parasolid® geometry engine, the CAD Import Module enables more advanced geometry operations to be performed on complex CAD models within the COMSOL Desktop. The interactive repair feature assures that imported geometries are mathematically correct for simulation and includes defeaturing tools that remove ﬁllets, small faces, sliver faces, as well as spikes and short edges.
All the capabilities of the CAD Import Module are also available in the LiveLink products for AutoCAD®, Creo™ Parametric, Inventor®, Pro/ENGINEER®, Solid Edge®, SolidWorks®, and SpaceClaim® CAD systems, all of which deliver further seamless integration between your CAD designs and multiphysics simulations. With these products, changing a feature in the CAD design automatically updates the geometry in COMSOL Multiphysics, while retaining the physics settings. This enables simulations that involve sweeps of the geometric parameters, and allows you to optimize your designs directly from within COMSOL Multiphysics.
