Simulate at the Speed of Design

Altair SimSolid enables you to virtually simulate concepts quickly and efficiently with a high degree of accuracy


What is Altair SimSolid?

Altair SimSolid is a virtual testing environment that is helping thousands of designers, engineers, and analysts at leading companies gain a competitive advantage by greatly increasing productivity.

Using SimSolid, you can rapidly simulate multiple design scenarios under real-life conditions allowing quick iterations on designs of full-featured assemblies. This early virtual testing leads to increases in quality while also lowering the costs of multiple prototypes, physical testing and rework.

What Makes SimSolid Different?

Simulate and Compare Multiple Iterations in Minutes

The extreme speed of SimSolid allows you to run and compare numerous design options quickly and efficiently. Your setup and loading conditions are automatically applied to any updates on CAD geometry reducing time consuming and repetitive rework.

Weight Displacement

“Typically with SOLIDWORKS, setup might be roughly half a day and the actual processing time might be in the region of 2-3 hours. In contrast to that, SimSolid might take half an hour to an hour to set up in the first place and in terms of processing time, it might take 20 seconds to be able to provide the solutions we are looking for, so there is a marked difference.”
