Get in touch to find out more about how OptiAssist can help transform your business.
OptiAssist is an add-on for Simcenter 3D users and is designed to help you take advantage of the Nastran Optimisation module (SOL200). The software aims to provide a cohesive optimisation environment that extends the current structural optimisation features and streamline the Simcenter interface to Nastran. Using OptiAssist allows engineers to rapidly deliver high performance, lightweight products within a short timeframe.
As a direct add-in to the Simcenter 3D environment, OptiAssist provides an optimisation environment for Simcenter 3D that works directly with the native model data. OptiAssist for Simcenter 3D supports Simcenter 3D releases 2019.1 onwards.
Composites capabilities work with both the standard Simcenter 3D composite model and the extended capabilities of the Laminate Composite Module. OptiAssist requires Simcenter 3D, Simcenter Nastran and its Design Optimisation Module.
OptiAssist for Simcenter 3D provides efficient optimisation work trails within Simcenter 3D, automatically preparing the Nastran optimisation (SOL200) solution data based upon the user’s setup. Users may select their existing Nastran solution / sub-case objects and OptiAssist will automatically migrate these to the optimisation solution set. Version 2.0 supports static and dynamic modal solution types. Within the OptiAsisst trails users may consider the following structural responses:
Design optimisation techniques are not new, but their adoption into engineering developments remains relatively low; often applied by an ‘optimisation expert.’ OptiAssist for Simcenter 3D builds on GRM’s experience of applying design optimisation to real world engineering developments, providing an interface that guides engineers, allowing them to unlock the capabilities of design optimisation.
Led by Sir Ben Ainslie, a previous America’s Cup winner and the most successful Olympic sailor of all time, INEOS TEAM UK was formed in 2018 to bring the America’s Cup home to Britain for the first time. Simcenter 3D and OptiAssist enable efficient analysis and optimization of composites designs.
D2H Advanced Technologies are leaders in engineering development and technological innovation. They began as elite engineers and technology specialists in the super-competitive world of pinnacle motorsports. Through their Siemens Digital Industries Software solution provider, OnePLM, their search for better analytical and optimisation software led them to GRM’s OptiAssist for Simcenter 3D.
