Tosca Extension for ANSYS Workbench

The Tosca Extension for ANSYS Workbench combines the ANSYS simulation environment with the power of Tosca Structure’s structural optimization capabilities. The optimization process for topology and shape optimizations (Tosca Structure.topology, Tosca Structure.shape) can be performed within one graphical user interface. Task definition, execution, and result visualization can be easily carried out in ANSYS Workbench.


  • Perform topology and shape optimization tasks within familiar ANSYS Workbench environment
  • Use graphical interaction with the ANSYS FE model for direct optimization definitions on the model geometry
  • Visualize results in the ANSYS postprocessor
  • Check results with an integrated validation model
  • Full integration in ANSYS Workbench, with its comprehensive functionalities and intuitive usability
  • Easy and fast setup
  • The Tosca Extension for ANSYS Workbench graphical user interface is free of charge for Tosca Structure and ANSYS Workbench customers
