Free Design Showcase From Altair & Brompton Bicycle 

Taking Place During DEVELOP3D LIVE 2019

Room: INOX 1  I  University of Sheffield




Don't miss out on our Free workshop: Providing Designers Easy Access to Powerful Simulation Tools


This free to attend event provided an introduction to Altair Inspire, a powerful simulation suite for Designers. Held in conjunction with Brompton Bicycle, the event featured live demonstrations showcasing individual Altair Inspire software tools.  The iconic Brompton bike structure was used to highlight the unique capabilities of the technology and provided practical examples that the audience could apply in their workplace.

Attendees saw first hand how simulation technology can help facilitate companies to ‘Design the Difference’ by accessing optimization technology utilising’s Altair’s two decades of application knowledge. The audience saw how Altair Inspire can accurately capture complex mechanical behaviour to verify design and assess manufacturability; all while being fully integrated with existing CAD systems to compliment established workflows.


If you couldn't attend then you missed out on a fantastic day of discussion and insight - but it's not too late! 

If you would like to see how Altair Inspire was utilised throughout the Brompton bike structure, or if you'd like to try Altair Inspire for yourself with a free demo, please just complete the form to the right of this page and we'll be in touch.

Why Altair Inspire?
Increase Quality
Altair Inspire allows users to rapidly explore and assess designs for static loads, normal modes, buckling and motion through an intuitive user experience leveraging its embedded physics engine. This enables users to ensure a quality and dependable design prior to any prototyping or production.
Reduce Cost
Leveraging simulation-driven design with Inspire early and often in the design process enables costs savings by reducing material usage, re-design iterations, and overall design time.
Meet Time to Market Goals
Simulation-driven design equips its users with the tools necessary to accelerate their overall design process. Inspire helps them to streamline the production of high-performance, quality parts and products. By utilizing Altair Inspire in the concept design phase, users can arrive at an ideal design concept extremely early in the process and reduce, or even eliminate re-design iterations.
