    To obtain better simulation results, a systematic and powerful mesh is key. While some finite element analysis (FEA) software products have advanced meshing tools to help obtain a superior analytical model, applying these tools can be complicated. Using the guidelines and tricks taught in this session upfront, during your CAD modeling for simulation with Autodesk software, you can develop a better mesh more efficiently and obtain accurate and precise results. This class will explain first how to recognize mesh qualities, then how to use CAD modeling techniques to obtain a refined mesh more efficiently, saving time and money in your analysis efforts.

    Key Learnings

    • Understand what constitutes a good mesh, and what are common issues
    • Learn how to model your part or assembly so that you can consistently get a good mesh
    • Learn additional tricks to get a good mesh quickly
    • Learn how to apply the knowledge from this class to your workflows for upfront simulation
