INSPIRE 2018: DISCOVER THE FUTURE OF SIMULATION-DRIVEN DESIGN FOR DESIGN OPTIMIZATION, SIMULATION, AND MANUFACTURING FEASIBILITY WITHIN A SEAMLESS USER EXPERIENCE
Inspire, the industry's most powerful and easy-to-use Generative Design/Topology Optimization and rapid simulation solution for design engineers empowers its users by creating and investigating structurally efficient concepts quickly and easily.
This can lead to reduced costs, development time, material consumption, and product weight.
The new feature-packed release of Inspire 2018 introduces many groundbreaking new features including the ability to:
Generate optimized lattice and mixed solid - lattice structures, visualize simulation results in 3D, and export lattice designs in a .stl file format for 3D printing.
View and interactively assign loads to load cases and import / export design loads in .csv file format with the new Load Cases Table.
Design for additive manufacturing with overhang shape controls to help reduce overhangs to create more self-supporting structures.
Automatically optimize the fit of PolyNURBS CAD geometry to generative design results with the new PolyNURBS Fit Tool.

The time for Simulation-driven Design is now! Simulation is no longer being used to simply validate and analyze performance in the final phase of the design process. In order to stay competitive while pushing the envelope on innovation, simulation
must drive the entire design process from the early concept design phase all the way to production. Leveraging robust simulation using tools like solidThinking Inspire early and often has become a necessary driver to innovation and is helping
numerous industry-leading companies to meet quality, cost, and time to market targets.
Applied at the very beginning of clean-sheet design programs and for design exploration of current production parts, Inspire simulation-driven design software allows designers and engineers to:
Rapidly assemble and simulate dynamic mechanical systems to automatically resolve loads on system components for optimization and analysis
Generate weight-efficient design proposals unique to specified conventional or additive manufacturing processes with Altair's industry-leading topology optimization technology
Simulate the performance of competing design concepts for static loads, normal modes and buckling
Directly export Inspire CAD geometry to 3D printers to produce high-performance, quality parts
Meet and Exceed Targets for:
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.
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.
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 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.
