For Alibre Users


Solutions for Alibre

SimWise for Alibre is a special version of SimWise that only works with Alibre Design Expert and Alibre Design Professional. SimWise for Alibre is the most cost-effective simulation and capable product that is integrated with Alibre. It can bi-Directionally transfer parts, assemblies, and assembly mates between Alibre and SimWise.

Once within SimWise, simulation specific information can be added resulting in a functional operating prototype allowing a multitude of Simulations to be run directly using the information from Alibre. If the Alibre model is modified, the changes can be sent from Alibre to SimWise, where the modification will be reflected in the SimWise model without effecting any Simulation specific information added to the SimWise model.

The SimWise for Alibre family consists of the following products:

  • SimWise Motion for Alibre Performs rigid body dynamics on assemblies of moving parts from Alibre. Allows the performance of a moving design to be validated.
  • SimWise FEA for Alibre Performs FEA analysis on parts and assemblies from Alibre. Analysis types include linear static, normal modes, buckling, steady state and transient heat transfer, and combined thermal/structural.
  • SimWise 4D for Alibre Combines the capabilities of SimWise Motion for Alibre and SimWise FEA for Alibre and adds the ability to compute the stresses that occur from the dynamics loads computed by a motion simulation.

SimWise 4D provides the following:

Desktop product integrated within Alibre Design Expert and Alibre Design Professional. Product is built and streamlined for Simulation. No need to use an Alibre license while simulating.
Extensive set of simulation capabilities. Handles your current simulation needs and ready for your future needs. 3D Dynamic Motion, FEA, Optimization. Upgrade to full SimWise to obtain Control System Co-simulation, Multi-CAD support, export to other Simulation systems, and Fatigue life calculations.
Virtual prototype of your design. Allows questions like "Does it Work?", and "Will it Break?" to be answered without building physical hardware or running physical tests.
Cost effective. Provides high-end simulation capabilities at a cost compatible with your Alibre licenses.
