MSC Apex Modeler

MSC Apex Modeler is a CAE specific direct modeling and meshing solution that streamlines CAD clean-up, simplification and meshing workflow. The solution features sophisticated and interactive tools that are easy to use and easy to learn.

Direct Modeling – Direct modeling allows users to create and edit geometry interactively. Simply select the entities of interest, such as a face, edge or vertex, and push, pull, or drag to implement any modifications. Direct Modeling is complemented with built in meshing technology.

Direct Modeling and Meshing – For models that have already been meshed and require further geometry modification, use any of the Direct Modeling or Geometry Clean-up/Repair tools and the mesh will be immediately regenerated.

Easy to Use, Easy to Learn – MSC Apex was designed to have multi-purpose tools so as to make the application easy to use. It also features numerous learning aids such as tutorials, video based documentation, workflow and at-mouse instructions which promotes single day productivity.

Description

MSC Apex® Modeler

Direct modeling and meshing solution

MSC Apex Modeler is a CAE specific direct modeling and meshing solution that streamlines CAD clean-up, simplification and meshing workflow. The solution features sophisticated and interactive tools that are easy to use
and easy to learn. Direct modeling – Direct modeling allows users to create and edit geometry interactively. Simply select the entities of interest, such as a face, edge or vertex, and push, pull, or drag to implement any modifications. Direct Modeling is complemented with built in meshing technology that automatically updates the mesh for any geometry modification.
Midsurfacing – Apex provides efficient midsurfacing tools from large assemblies. Our dedicated midsurfacing algorithms allow the user to create midsurfaces from solids with complex geometry and varying thickness. Another
set of geometry tools extends and connects these surfaces automatically.
Meshing – Apex high performing meshing algorithms are generative. Complex solids can be hex meshed, by splitting them into hex-meshable cells and suppressing optional edges. The mesh can be guided by face splits, mesh seeds,
and outer face meshes.
Easy to use, easy to learn – MSC Apex is designed to have multi-purpose tools so as to make the application easy to use. It also features numerous learning aids such as tutorials, video-based documentation, workflow and at-mouse
instructions which promotes single day productivity.
