The new featured-packed release of solidThinking Inspire® 2016 introduces groundbreaking
PolyNURBS functionality allowing users to quickly and easily flow optimized designs into manufacturable
products by wrapping topology results with NURBS geometry.
“Our new PolyNURBS toolset is a game changer, allowing users to create geometry from
optimized results much faster than traditional CAD modelling,” explains Andy Bartels, Program
Manager. “The result is an incredibly robust tool that has not only expanded the use cases for
Inspire, but also accelerates the path to cost-effective manufacturing.”
Doug Hedges, President of Sintavia, LLC., notes that, “Inspire does what few programs can; it
takes a complex process and makes it easy to understand. My whole team was able to use the
program after just a few hours of training and it has led to dramatic time savings in the design
Key Updates for Inspire 2016 include:
PolyNURBS – Create manufacturable designs from topology optimization results with NURBS
geometry using a simple workflow.
Results Comparisons – Easily compare results across multiple runs and loading scenarios in
New Load Types – Consider temperature loads, velocity, acceleration, G-loads, and enforced
displacement to simulate precise loading conditions.
“Inspire embodies our vision to make simulation available across multiple user communities to
facilitate innovation,” says James R. Scapa, Altair Founder, Chairman and CEO. “We are
excited to be deploying this technology through our global channel partners with their deep
domain knowledge and expertise.”
Inspire 2016 is available through more than 120 channel partners worldwide, and through
Altair’s patented HyperWorks licensing model. Inspire is also available as part of the
solidThinking Suite, which includes Evolve 2016, released earlier this year.
