Inspire accelerates the creation, optimisation, and study of innovative, structurally efficient parts and assemblies through collaboration.

Accelerate Simulation-driven Design.

Applied early in the product development lifecycle, Inspire accelerates the creation, optimisation, and study of innovative, structurally efficient parts and assemblies through collaboration. Inspire's award-winning user experience for geometry creation and modification can be learned in just a few hours and delivers dependable Altair solver power: Structural analysis with the speed and accuracy of Altair SimSolid™ - as independently validated by NAFEMS - provides the ability to analyse large assemblies and complex parts. Dynamic motion simulation, including loads extraction, using the reliable multi-body systems analysis of Altair MotionSolve™. The industry standard for structural efficiency, topology optimisation by Altair OptiStruct™, for the generative design of practical, viable, and manufacturable geometry. Inspire enables both simulation analysts and designers to perform what-if studies faster, easier, and above all earlier, encouraging collaboration and reducing product time to market.

Inspire Creat Modify Designs with Ease

Optimise for Manufacturability

Experience an interactive engineering design environment for rapid design exploration and product creation, without the need to invest in new computer hardware.

Simulate at the Speed of Design

Extend your application scope by coupling EDEM with leading tools for other CAE disciplines – from Altair or third parties – including MBD, FEA, and CFD.

Key Features of Inspire

Geometry Creation and Simplification Create, modify, and de-feature solid models using Inspire’s modeling tools. Leverage the speed and accuracy of SimSolid to evaluate multiple variants.

Dynamic Motion Easily generate dynamic motion of complex mechanisms, automatically identifying contacts, joints, springs, and dampers.

Topology Optimisation Inspire offers a number of topology options including optimisation objectives, stress and displacement constraints, acceleration, gravity, and temperature loading conditions.

Design for Additive Manufacturing Design for additive manufacturing with overhang shape controls to help reduce overhangs to create more self-supporting structures.

Structural Analysis Investigate linear static and normal modes analysis on a model and visualise displacement, factor of safety, percent of yield, tension and compression, von Mises stress, and major principal stress.

Assembly Configuration Create multiple assembly configurations which can then be used to evaluate various design scenarios and the resulting concepts.
