CAPRI CAE Gateway eliminates many of the traditional steps and hurdles in preprocessing CAD models. CAD data can have gaps and loose tolerances which may require tedious manual intervention to correct. Import using CAPRI CAE Gateway is guaranteed to be “watertight” for valid solids. This means there are no "gaps" in the representation which can stall the preprocessing.
CAPRI CAE Gateway does not translate the CAD model, which ensures accuracy for simulation and associativity with the CAD topology which is crucial for updating boundary conditions and simulation attributes during an iterative design process.
CAPRI CAE Gateway is being successfully used with a wide range of meshing algorithms ranging from specialized structured block, chimera overset, cartesian to fully unstructured meshes.
