Algor Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Autodesk, Inc., is now shipping new functionality with the latest version of Algor simulation software. Algor is now part of the Autodesk solution for digital prototyping, which allows engineers to design, visualize, and simulate a complete product with a single digital model.
Algor software now offers expanded modeling and finite element analysis (FEA) techniques and improved support for multiple CAD software tools. The software’s range of analysis and simulation tools, paired with Autodesk Inventor software, helps manufacturers increase productivity and competitiveness, speed time to market and reduce costs, according to the company.
The following features in Algor V23.1 expand a range of analysis and simulation capabilities:
- Improved simulation of multipart assemblies: Users have greater control over how to connect adjacent parts for a wider range of analysis types.
- Increased efficiency when simulating heat transfer: A new library of common convection data includes properties for air and water over a range of temperatures.
- Expanded tools for simulating creep: Users have a broader range of tools for testing high stress levels as well as the effects of long-term stress on a part.
- Improved collaboration in a multi-CAD environment: Users can more easily study designs created using Inventor, Solid Edge, and SolidWorks as well as CAD geometry stored in ACIS, STEP, IGES, and stereolithography files.
