Award Amount: $69,725.00


CADNexus proposes to develop a complete integrated system for CAD model preparation built on best-in-breed products from CADNexus and ESI Group. The combined solution holds promise for greater automation and robust capability to deal with CAD model preparation problems in all the popular CAD formats with broad connectivity to commercial and government meshing and simulation packages. The combined system will use the CADNexus CAPRI CAE Gateway and ESIf?Ts CFD-GEOM and CFD-Viscart products. Other technology from the companies may also be leveraged as needed in the Phase 1 effort. CAPRI is naturally suited as an upfront engine to provide automated geometry import, processing and watertight tessellation of CAD data to ESI CFD-GEOM and ESI CFD-Viscart. The ESI toolset can provide advanced healing, feature simplification, 3D mesh generation, component wrapping into a single watertight mesh, and rich graphical interface to operate the integrated system.
