Creating design models is a core part of the product development process and the first step of the simulation process. These models can be of a geometry form representing the actual design detail, or they can be an approximation of the design using simplified components like beams and plates.

Simulation often demands unique modeling capabilities that typical CAD operations do not require. Therefore these capabilities are either lacking in CAD systems or implemented in a fashion that is not optimum for performing simulation related functions.

DesignModeler is a Workbench application from ANSYS that provides modeling functions unique for simulation that include detailed geometry creation, CAD geometry modification simplification and concept model creation tools.

Detail Geometry Creation

DesignModeler offers geometry creation features like extrude, revolve, sweep, chamfer functions and others to create fully parametric models. These models can be used with any ANSYS core simulation product or with products like ANSYS DesignXplorer for performing design optimization.

CAD Geometry Modification

CAD models are usually intended to accurately represent the exact intent of the the final design and often lack additional features required for simulation. DesignModeler provides these unique simulation features like splitting surfaces for applying loads, defining welds or creating regions around models that represent “air.”

Concept Model Creation

Concept models are used in a product development process prior to any detailed CAD geometry being created. These design approximations, along with simulation results, are extremely useful in making product decisions early in the design cycle when product costs can be impacted significantly. DesignModeler has tools for creating these models quickly and then, with ANSYS simulation tools, easily predicting how the proposed design will perform.

Geometry Exchange

DesignModeler can read geometry from any Workbench-supported CAD system. Those parametrically supported CAD systems will also be parametrically associative in DesignModeler. In addition to importing data, DesignModeler can also export data as Parasolid, IGES and the ANSYS ANF geometry format.

The ANSYS DesignModeler software seems to be old or discontinued.
Such programs may not work on modern operating systems properly, are no longer available and supported by their original developers, or are simply obsolete for their purpose. Sometimes companies offer limited support through their website.

Note: You can click on any file extension link from the list below, to view its detailed information. The list of extensions used or otherwise associated with the application may not be complete, because many common file extensions on our website, such as jpg (pictures) or txt (text files), can be opened by a large number of applications, or are too general file format. However most, if not all directly associated file extensions should be listed with its appropriate program. Although its likely, that some file extensions may be missing from the list of associated file extensions with the application, yet they can be opened, be part of, or otherwise be associated with the program.
