Dassault Systèmes subsidiary Spatial has added 3D mesh technology from Distene S.A.S. into its 3D modeling software development toolkits as it aims to improve processes for analysis and simulation solutions.
3D Precise Mesh bids to automate the process, while improving the overall quality of the resulting generative design.
“We were looking for a lightweight meshing component to be used in all our finite-element-solvers and decided on components from Distene,” said Dassault Systèmes’ Oleg Skipa. “Their Tetrahedral meshing technology represents the de facto industry standard.”
“We also use Spatial’s 3D ACIS Modeler for our 3D geometry kernel. Crucially these two technologies interface extremely well. Spatial can leverage this mesh technology and provide an integrated solution for customers.”
The self-contained meshing component can be integrated into a software application, providing end users with access to a solution validated via a large and growing database of models. With support for parallelised meshing, 3D Precise Mesh removes some of the limits for the most demanding simulations.
“The CAD to solver link has long been a bottleneck in the 3D modeling world that Distene aims at reducing with automatic and industrial-strength meshing technologies,” said Laurent Anné, sales director and co-founder of Distene.
“This partnership leverages the technological heritage of both Spatial and Distene to provide analysis applications with an efficient CAD to solver link that is fast, flexible, and most importantly, delivers the best mesh available for critical simulation workflows.”
