Jan 5, 2015 -- Russian hi-tech innovative engineering company, Computational Mechanics Laboratory, LLC (also known as CompMechLab® Ltd.) signed a reseller's agreement with a US software company SOLIDTHINKING, Inc. - a leader in Computer Aided Engineering (CAE), topology optimization and industrial design - on December 1st, 2014. CompMechLab® became an official reseller of solidThinking Evolve and Inspire in Russia and CIS countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Ukraine), Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Finland.
From the day of its establishment, the aim of Computational Mechanics Laboratory, LLC, is to generate technological chains of a new generation, i.e. multiphysics, multi-stage and multi-level innovation developments for a vast range of industries.
The entering into the reseller's agreement of CompMechLab® and SOLIDTHINKING is a result of a long-term and productive activity of CompMechLab® in the field of CAE, as well as acknowledgment that CompMechLab® is one of the leaders of Russian and European R&D innovative companies.
The software developed by SOLIDTHINKING, Inc. includes two advanced computer aided technologies of the top class level:
- solidThinking Inspire – a CAE system for topology optimization;
- solidThinking Evolve – a tool for industrial design applications.
solidThinking Inspire is an innovation software tool which enables design engineers, product designers and architects to create and investigate structurally efficient concepts quickly and easily. Traditional structural simulations allow engineers to check if a design will support the required loads. Inspire enhances this process greatly by generating a new material layout within a defined space using the loads as an input. The software is easy to learn and works with existing CAD tools to help design structural parts right the first time, reducing costs, development time, material consumption, and product weight. Inspire is based on the same technology as Altair OptiStruct®, the unique multi-parametric optimization tool developed by Altair Engineering, Inc.
The latest release of Inspire, "Inspire 2014", has introduces multiple new enhancements including new geometry simplification tools, smoothing options, linear static analysis, concentrated mass parts and much more. Inspire is vastly applied in aerospace, turbomachinery, automotive, shipbuilding and consumer goods industries.
solidThinking Inspire also spares both designer’s and CAE engineer’s time providing the designers with all necessary tolls to make the evaluation of an initial design concept on their own fast and reliably. Another important issue is that Inspire has been developed considering modern trends of advanced manufacturing technologies, i.e. 3D printing. A crucial fact for the designers and technologists is that the design developed in Inspire can be easily converted into a format used for direct 3D printing of a prototype.
solidThinking Evolve allows industrial designers to develop forms faster, enabling them to capture an initial sketch, explore styling alternatives, and visualize products with realistic renderings generated in real time. Evolve software provides organic surface modeling and parametric control, with NURBS-based surfaces and solids and a unique Construction Tree history feature. It frees designers from the constraints of vastly spread engineering-oriented CAD tools, while allowing the export of digital models required by others in the product development process.
Advanced technologies implemented in solidThinking software products provide efficient support to industrial designers, engineers and technologists and help them to develop innovative and competitive products faster and easier, as well as visualize the structures obtained in real time. Actually, both Inspire and Evolve change the global approach to initial design procedures and help the designers to meet industrial challenges when creating lighter, stiffer and more efficient products.
"Our company highly appreciate the collaboration with SOLIDTHINKING, Inc. – a world leader in the field of structure design optimization", - Anton Aleksashkin, CAE Software Distribution Department Director, CompMechLab®, mentions. "According to our experience, optimization computer aided technologies become more and more solicited in Russian market, as well as in the market of neighboring countries, such as Belarus, Ukraine, Baltic States and Finland. Being able to implement such innovative tools as Inspire and Evolve in modern technological chains, we can help Russian, Baltic, CIS and Finnish companies which work in the field of automotive, aerospace, shipbuilding, turbomachinery and other industries to achieve a principally new level of new parts and structures creation, minimizing time and efforts investments".
