Why Altair Inspire?

  • Geometry creation and simplification. Create, modify, and simplify solid models, while also crafting freeform geometry with PolyNURBS and exploring diverse assembly configurations. 
  • Intuitive dynamic motion analysis. Generate dynamic motion of complex mechanisms, automatically identifying contacts, joints, springs, and dampers. 
  • Cutting-edge topology optimization. Access topology options like optimization objectives, stress/displacement constraints, acceleration, gravity, and temperature loading conditions. 
  • Optimized design for additive manufacturing. Design for additive manufacturing with overhang shape controls to reduce overhangs and create self-supporting structures. 
  • Comprehensive structural analysis. Analyze linear static and normal modes on a model and visualize displacement, factor of safety, yield percent, tension/compression, von Mises stress, and major principal stress.

Altair Inspire simplifies simulation, providing fast and accurate results. It enabled a new approach, achieving impressive outcomes in a short time and pushing component design closer to its limits."
