    Adams/Car integration into SimManager addresses a key challenge of automotive industry by providing a platform for cooperation and global team participation in full vehicle multibody dynamics simulations. Adams/Car-SimManager integration is achieved through a client plug-in installation, providing direct access to SimManager directly from Adams/Car interface. The plug-in provides users the ability to retrieve models from SimManager, edit, and publish to SimManager.
  • SimManager Client Integration

    Direct integration of SimManager into many of the CAE pre- and post-processing tools commonly used by engineers is implemented in this release. The integration provides direct support to retrieve a model, input or results files from SimManager, and make modifications and publish changes back to SimManager without leaving the native application. Direct integration is provided for the following products:
    • Patran 2010-2014
    • SimXpert 2012-2013
    • Marc Mentat 2012-2014
    • Adams/Car 2011-2013

  • Integrated VCollab 3D Model Viewer

    Providing robust visualization of computer-aided design (CAD) & CAE models as well as CAE results significantly improves the “Visual IQ” of SimManager. SimManager 2014 integrates VCollab and VMove directly with SimManager as an optional module. VCollab is the best in class vendor neutral, ultra-compact web friendly generation and viewer for CAD, finite element analysis (FEA) and CAD data. SimManager with VCollab generates light weight web friendly 3D snapshot and 2D images. Results can also be displayed for interactive post processing from within your web browser.
