Value proposition

Simpleware ScanIP+FE provides a robust conversion of 3D image data into multi-part volumetric models. The software generates volume and/or surface meshes, contact surfaces and material properties from segmented scan data. These high quality meshes can be directly imported into Abaqus, as well as a range of other commercial FE and CFD packages.
Key Features/Benefits:
Produce complex models of excellent quality in a fraction of the time taken with other approaches
Export meshes directly to Abaqus
Mesh multiple structures and define contact surfaces between them
Assign continuous material properties throughout a mesh

Easy to learn and operate
Backed by full technical support from experienced engineers
Mesh generation module +FE
