The new Discovery Live package from Ansys enables engineers to simulate designs in real time quickly and more economically. Discovery Live is expanding Pervasive Engineering Simulation – empowering engineers to pose what-if questions upfront in the design process where most of the product costs are locked in, to rapidly explore thousands of design options and to receive immediate feedback.
Discovery Live’s instant simulation tightly coupled with direct geometry modeling in a real-time and intuitive design environment delivers interactive exploration and rapid product innovation. Now, every engineer can immediately examine the impact of their design changes, instead of waiting weeks or months to set up, run and analyze prototypes.
“We had the opportunity to preview Ansys Discovery Live, and it’s obvious this technology is a game changer in providing instantaneous simulation to enable interactive design exploration,” said Craig Skinner, chief aerodynamicist, Aston Martin Red Bull Racing.
The platform expands on the types of inputs and displays users have at their disposal, increasing fluids, structural and thermal capabilities.
“Ansys Discovery Live empowers us to run different design scenarios in real time and speeds our development process considerably,” said Matt Carlson, vice president business development, WiBotic.
“Discovery Live provides us a sense of confidence before manufacturing and significant time and monetary savings – enabling us to drastically reduce prototyping fees and spend more time perfecting usability and aesthetic design.”
Ansys VP and GM Mark Hindsbo added, “From students to startups to Formula One racing teams, thousands of users downloaded Discovery Live during the technology preview. It has been very rewarding to see users tackling the design of almost every type and complexity of product and validating the need for rapid simulation in the early concept development phase.
“The introduction of the Discovery product family is a milestone in our commitment to Pervasive Engineering Simulation and enabling every engineer to benefit from incorporating high fidelity insight into their design.”
