Identifying CAD Model Issues to Accelerate Pre-Processing Activities

Altair's Model Verification Director (MVD) allows engineering analysts to validate
CAD model data received from the design teams, automatically identifying potential
issues that could slow down the pre-processing stage of the simulation life cycle.

The MVD is embedded into HyperWorks pre-processing technology, HyperMesh and
integrated into the Assembly Browser. The solution identifies CAD intersections,
missing welds, and incorrect bolt-nut positions on an entire assembly structure and
generates comprehensive reports in both Microsoft PowerPoint and Excel formats
to allow for easy communication of the validation results. With this insight, the CAD
design team can correct the model data and help streamline the finite element
modeling process.

The Model Verification Director highlights include:

  • Reduce the model verification time from 72 hours to 8 hours (90%)
  • Automatically checks the model data in batch mode overnight 
  • Automatically identify issues with CAD data before the meshing stage
  • Checks for intersections, spot weld duplications, correct connections and more
  • Generates reports of issues in PowerPoint or Excel to provide fedback to design teams
