Optimize with Abaqus, ANSYS, or MSC Nastran


The ANSA graphical user interface is capable of creating the complete optimization setup, starting from creating or reusing an existing Abaqus, ANSYS, or MSC Nastran FEA simulation for optimization task definition, execution, and final result post-processing.


  • Define optimization tasks interactively on 3D models supporting Abaqus, ANSYS, MSC Nastran
  • Create and author FE models and optimization task
  • Visualize manufacturing restrictions directly on the model
  • Save time through simple and intuitive handling and reusable workflow templates
  • Avoid mistakes through continuous consistency checks for optimization models
  • Check results through fully automated generation and analysis of validation models
