PTC and ANSYS bring real-time simulation to design engineers

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

PTC has released Creo Simulation Live which combines PTC’s and ANSYS’ capabilities by bringing real-time simulation directly into the design environment, allowing design engineers to see the impact of their decisions as they make them.

“For too long, form and function have been separated in the design process,” said Mark Hindsbo, vice president and general manager, ANSYS. “This capability will fundamentally change product design and allow engineers to innovate more and get to market faster – making product development much more agile.”

With higher quality designs, analysts will then be able to spend their time on more advanced, higher value analysis. Today’s announcement is the result of the strategic alliance between PTC and ANSYS, which was announced last year at PTC’s LiveWorx digital transformation conference.

“The demand for lighter, faster, and stronger products that work the first time has strained traditional design processes,” said Brian Thompson, senior vice president, CAD Segment, PTC. “Companies have long been advocating for analysis-led design, and PTC and ANSYS are combining forces to put simulation in the hands of design engineers.”

Creo features capabilities and technologies like cloud-based augmented reality (AR), Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), simulation, topology optimisation, computational fluid dynamics, and more.

CAD data is the foundation for the digital twin, a digital record of each product’s designed, manufactured, service, and real-world state. Comprised of the digital definition of the product and the physical experience of the asset in the field, this enables manufacturers to envision new products that better meet customer needs, as well as develop business models to better market and sell the product to customers.
