Analyze CAD Based Die Designs in NX

Consider formability early in the design cycle with CAE, in the NX environment.

Since most tooling designs are done in a CAD environment, DYNAFORM’s D-Eval-in-NX Module was specially created to support and analyze CAD based tooling and engineering designs within the native NX environment.

A CAE solution, D-Eval-in-NX is tailored to support engineers in the early stages of the product design cycle. It allows engineers to take manufacturability into consideration early in the design process, ahead of the tooling stage.

D-Eval-in-NX includes the INCSolver, which allows engineers to generate reliable formability results efficiently. The INCSolver is a nonlinear transient dynamic finite element program using an explicit method to solve equations of motion, commonly called “incremental code”. It was developed solely for the purpose of simulating sheet metal forming processes.

Using Shared Memory Processing (SMP), users can take advantage of the multiple-CPUs, Multiple-Cores and Multiple-Threads of the latest Windows computing platform. This allows for quick and reliable results. For most cases with a 4-core CPU, results can be generated in just minutes. The INCSolver works well with non-connected mesh generated from non-conforming CAD surfaces. This solution is most suitable for CAD engineers and is directly operated in the native NX environment. In addition, the INCSolver’s features and functions are excellent for early stage tooling evaluation are very simple to learn and use.
