MSC Apex model of a composite layup airplane structure

MSC Apex’s latest release, Harris Hawk, is targeting a unique composite modeling and simulation experience that closely mimics the steps of the manufacturing process, introducing a new geometry tool for surface extensions to eliminate manual rework and to allow engineers to automate model preparation tasks.

Instead of using Finite Element Abstractions (FEA), MSC Apex allows engineers to manipulate physical representation such as fabric, layups, plies, panels, and zones.

With this in mind, users are promised that within a few hours they can become efficient with composite modelling and on-the-fly failure calculation
