Altair AeroSpace Wing Inspire 3D Printing 700x500

Discover Altair® Inspire™

Inspire is an intuitive and powerful family of software products that enables simulation-driven design throughout the entire product development lifecycle, from concept to reality.

Inspire Print3D accelerates the creation, optimization, and study of innovative, structurally efficient 3D-printed parts, providing a fast and accurate toolset for the design and process simulation of selective laser melting (SLM) parts.

Altair Sulis Lattice Feature

Altair® Sulis™

Rapidly design complex parts for additive manufacturing

Altair Sulis is a quick and intuitive design tool used to apply complex lattice structures to models. Since Sulis is a CAD tool created specifically for AM, engineers can design parts that truly leverage the freedom of AM, unlocking the power of implicit geometry and reducing the risk of costly 3D printing failures.

Inspire - Don't Be Late to Lightweight

Don't Wait to LightWeight Webinar

In this presentation, we will show how utilizing a simulation-driven Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM ) approach can help you set up an optimization suitable for the chosen AM process, rapidly assess optimization results and explore alternative designs and processes, extract and build “CAD ready” geometry, and assess build quality and potential defects.

Army Vehicle Payloads with Altair Inspire

Boosting U.S. Army Vehicle Payloads

Payload is a key performance measure for military vehicles, determining how many personnel and/or goods can be carried. Reflecting this, the US Army Ground Vehicle Systems Center (GVSC) is engaged in a project to reduce the curb weight of vehicles, and thereby boost payloads, by redesigning and replacing existing components with lighter alternatives.
