Abaqus in the 3DEXPERIENCE

3DEXPERIENCE structures roles, or Abaqus in the 3DEXPERIENCE, allow engineers from all
walks of life to perform comprehensive structural simulations covering statics, implicit and explicit
dynamics, acoustics and more, across a broad range of industrial applications.

Overview of Abaqus in the 3DEXPERIENCE

Imagine being able to build your Abaqus models directly using always up-to-date CAD from your designer in real time!

That is the power of Abaqus in the 3DEXPERIENCE. The same Abaqus solver you know and love with a fully updated graphical user interface and a host of improved features to make your life easier,

In the 3DEXPERIENCE, you are able to select the level of simulation capability based upon the expected level of complexity of your analysis and your budget

And remember, each one of your engineers can have tailored tools based upon
their role within the organization – whether they’re a designer performing quick stress checks or a fully fledged Abaqus power user.

The Key Benefits of Abaqus in the 3DEXPERIENCE

Single Source of Truth CAD Data

With a single source of truth data system, there is never a concern about analyzing incorrect or outdated designs.

Advanced Realtime Meshing

State-of-the-art meshing capabilities that update in realtime. No more mesh-unmesh-edit-remesh.

Abaqus Solver

The industry-leading Abaqus FEA solvers that you already know and love.

Multiphysics With The Touch Of A Button

Since all physics simulation can be contained within the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, structural, thermal, electrical and fluids simulations can be paired with ease

Industry-Leading Support

We’re Abaqus experts and, as such, provide the best support in the industry. No problem is too large or too small for us to tackle collaboratively

Abaqus in the 3DEXPERIENCE Add Ons

Composite Structures Analysis Engineer (SNE)

The composites analyst role allows end-to-end composite layup design, material modeling and cut-section evaluation. Minimize weight while maintaining structural performance, increasing certification confidence and understanding failure modes earlier on in the design phase.

Additive Manufacturing Analyst (AMF)

Design 3D printable parts and analyze thermo-mechanical behavior during printing. Realistic simulation of the additive manufacturing process enables companies to optimize part designs and process parameters for next generation products.

Simulation Process Engineer (SPF)

Optimize and automate your simulation; improve productivity and reduce time-consuming manual tasks by building and deploying automated simulation processes for all users in the organization.

Functional Generative Designer (GDE)

With the help of Topology Optimization, leverage 'get-it-right-first-time' design methodologies. Functional Generative Design allows you to quickly and easily optimize use of design space based on important parameters like stiffness and strength.

CAD Connectors

Work with your native CAD in the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, minimizing rework for simulation studies. Available for SOLIDWORKS, CATIA V5, Inventor, Creo and more.

Cloud compute tokens (SRU)

Cloud compute tokens mean no more costly hardware! Traditional token model using Dassault’s cloud for solving.

Cloud compute credits (SUN)

Cloud compute credits are expendable and allow analysis to be performed on any number of cores up to 144. This means no more right sizing local installs or waiting days and days for large jobs to solve.
