MSC Software Corp., Newport Beach, CA, has introduced the MSC Apex computer-aided engineering (CAE) platform, a Computational Parts-based CAE system. The platform enables predictive product development in the earlier stages of design. The platform is powered by a CAE-specific direct modeling and meshing engine that accelerates the CAD-to-mesh process. Integrated solver methods allow users to interactively validate parts and subsystem models. The generative behavior of the platform incrementally validates an evolving model and removes iterations inherent in the traditional pre-solve-post paradigm. MSC Apex allows a supply chain to share a product structure while independently managing instances of parts, subsystems, full assemblies, and their corresponding multi-fidelity behavioral representations. The platform is complementary to Patran and MSC Nastran.
