CAD to CAE Connectors

Our CAE connectors provide a simple and reliable path for importing CAD models into your simulation-driven design process. Our approach is based on the philosophy that

  • The native CAD model is the "true" representation of the engineering design intent,
  • The import process must be repeatable and reliable to enable design updates with no manual intervention.

Our translation-free, associative, connectivity to native CAD ensures integrity of the CAD data and minimal user intervention for repeated analysis saving significant engineering time and resources to perform iterative design studies.

CAPRI provides export to several common preprocessor formats and meshing tools:

STL AFLR3 ANSYS
ICEM CFD CART3D ABAQUS
TETGEN CGT OVERGRID NASTRAN
GRIDGEN SOLIDMESH GRIDPRO

The preprocessing solution are primarily designed to incorporated into an iterative design process. Our advanced solution also provides the capability to implement custom and proprietary export formats. The preprocessing solution can be combined with our parametric design capability to build an automated simulation-driven design system.
