CAD Associative Interfaces

The Associative Interfaces enable geometry transfer from a CAD system to Abaqus/CAE. These powerful add-on products allow you to send selected components or an entire assembly from the CAD system to Abaqus/CAE with a single mouse click. You can modify your model in supported CAD systems and use associative import to quickly update the model in Abaqus/CAE without losing any analysis features assigned to the model. The connection between the applications is provided by a plug-in for the CAD system and established through the CAD Connection toolset in Abaqus/CAE.
