SOLIDWORKS integration

Autodesk Nastran In-CAD brings the Autodesk Nastran solver, known for its proven and accurate results, directly to the SOLIDWORKS environment. Reduce your learning curve, maintain your productivity, avoid compatibility issues, and get the best cost for professional-level FEA.

You get the same working environment with menus, tree-type structures, and a familiar look and feel for creating finite models and viewing the results of your analysis. Autodesk Nastran In-CAD is completely compatible with SOLIDWORKS and uses true geometry associativity. Your loads, boundary conditions, and meshes update interactively in SOLIDWORKS. 

Key benefits of integration with SOLIDWORKS:

  • More advanced meshing technology means greater accuracy for geometrically complex models.
  • Faster automated contact generation means better accuracy for assemblies.
  • More reliable beam element modeling reduces surprises on thin-member assemblies.
  • More accurate nonlinear and dynamic capabilities and advanced material models support results you can use to make informed design decisions.

In addition, teams can easily share the software across multiple locations and different CAD systems.
