Tosca Structure

Optimize with Abaqus, ANSYS, or MSC Nastran

Tosca ANSA™ environment (TAe)

The graphical user interface Tosca ANSA™ environment guides the user intuitively through the whole optimization process. The easy-to-use Tosca ANSA environment graphical user interface is capable of creating the complete optimization setup, starting with an Abaqus, ANSYS, or MSC Nastran FEA simulation for optimization task definition, execution, and final result post-processing. 


  • Definition of topology, sizing, shape, and bead optimization tasks
  • Use graphical interaction with the FE model for direct definitions on the model geometry using Abaqus, ANSYS, or MSC Nastran FEA models
  • 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
