ANSYS™ SpaceClaim 2015 - helping you succeed throughout the entire product workflow.

ANSYS™ SpaceClaim 2015 makes working with geometry even better, allowing you to create, edit and repair 3D models without worrying about the technology. We've addressed customer concerns, emerging technologies, and rapidly growing trends while honing our core features that distinguish SpaceClaim from other 3D modeling solutions.

 

Featured SpaceClaim Demo

 

SpaceClaim enables engineers to easily create concepts and prepare 3D designs for digital prototyping, analysis, and manufacturing. SpaceClaim is especially suited for engineers and designers who need a tool that enables simulation-driven product design for:

Extending the Value of 3D to Everyday Engineering

SpaceClaim's 3D Direct Modeling technology revolutionizes the way you think about working with 3D solid models because it lets you focus on your design without the complexity of traditional CAD. For example, you can reuse data without planning and remix geometry from other designs, even those created in CAD systems. You can take a design where it needs to go, regardless of how it was built or the CAD system in which it was created.

SpaceClaim helps you get the ideas right without wasting a lot of time with traditional CAD history and constraints. Create new concepts and share them with other engineers before entering the detailed design phase; together, you get the concepts right and avoid expensive last-minute design changes. From a blank slate, start drawing 3D shapes as easily and freely as you should on the back of a napkin. De-feature and simplify parts for analysis or manufacturing and optimize the design without being constrained by original modeling intent.

Capabilities

The world’s fastest and most powerful direct modeler

Rich environment for engineering and conceptual design

Fits into your existing design process

3D cross section creation and manipulation

Flexible assembly structure

Parameters without constraints

Change the value of a dimension simply by selecting what you want to move and editing the value: your geometry goes to the right place. There's no need to set up complicated systems of constraints. Different users can set up and save their own sets of dimensions so that others can work with the model the way they want.

Design in any context

The same tools work to edit assemblies, parts, drawing views, and 3D markups enable you to create and make changes wherever you see the need. You don't have to worry about switching to the right mode.

SpaceClaim includes tools to automatically find and remove small features, greatly accelerating model preparation.

Interoperability Add-Ons

See the Interoperability page for details on our industry-leading translators to all popular CAD formats and traditional CAD systems as well as descriptions of SpaceClaim's ability to read and write to the industry-standard JT Open format.

Free TraceParts Library Access

All SpaceClaim users (version 2011 or later) receive free access to the TraceParts library of over 100 million standard CAD models from leading parts manufacturers. Read more about this free resource for SpaceClaim users.

Free SpaceClaim Plug-In for Rhinoceros

Starting with any stored .3dm document, the SpaceClaim-to-Rhino Plug-in provides a round-trip that directly exports the current window from Rhino to SpaceClaim and imports the window contents of SpaceClaim back to Rhino. Software requirements include: Rhino 4.0 and SpaceClaim 2008 or later. See Help About for instructions on enabling this Plug-in on your system.

SpaceClaim Viewer

Using the free SpaceClaim viewer, you can share a SpaceClaim design with a client, but your client doesn't need to use 3D or have SpaceClaim itself installed on his or her computer. With a simple 5MB download, anyone on Windows can view your designs from Window Explorer, Microsoft Outlook, and other applications. They only have to download the free SpaceClaim Viewer.
