WHAT IS INSPIRE?

solidThinking Inspire enables design engineers, product designers, and architects to create and investigate structurally efficient concepts quickly and easily. Traditional structural simulations allow engineers to check if a design will support the required loads. Inspire enhances this process by generating a new material layout within a package space using the loads as an input. 

Top 5 Reasons to use Inspire:

  • Easy to learn and use
  • Reduce development time
  • Reduce product weight
  • Reduce material consumption
  • Works with your existing CAD tools

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

With solidThinking Inspire a user can load in or model up a rough set of geometry, apply performance and boundary conditions (loads, constraints, pressures etc), then use a method of topology optimization based on medical theory that states that bone, in both humans and animals alike, will adapt to the loads under which it is placed. If the loading on a particular bone increases, the bone will remodel itself over time to become stronger to resist that sort of loading.

Once you’ve determined the optimal shape Inspire can force design constraints based on your desired manufacturing methods and you can export that shape directly to your 3D printer and/or to your existing CAD tool to further detail and enhance the design.
