Geometry Preparation in Ansys Discovery

Modeling for Ansys Discovery, Fluent, and Mechanical

Overview

Training eLearning Basic

Whether you work with Ansys Discovery or Ansys SpaceClaim, this training will teach you everything you need to know about modeling for Ansys. This training is offered as a 2-day course or alternatively as a self-paced eLearning course.

Duration
2 days

Prerequisites
None

Software used
Ansys Discovery

Benefits
  • Create simulation models for Ansys Discovery, Fluent, and Mechanical
  • Import, repair, and modify existing geometries
  • Efficient working method with parameters, Powerselect, and shortcuts
  • Long-term learning success through extensive "do-it-yourself" training

Description

Get to know Ansys Discovery, a creative tool for engineers. With the Direct Modeling Concept, known from Ansys SpaceClaim and now implemented in Ansys Discovery, you can create new CAD Models or modify existing ones using comprehensive and interactive tools.

Geometry creation and modification are intuitive, making it ideal for preparing FEM and CFD simulations. Even complex CAD Models can be prepared efficiently. Techniques for identifying critical details and automatic repair functions provide support. Extensive parameterization options are available for carrying out sensitivity studies and optimizations at a later stage. The subsequent simulation can be carried out with Ansys Discovery, Ansys Fluent, or Ansys Mechanical.

In this training, you will learn the modeling functions of Ansys Discovery using selected application examples for Volume Models, Shell Models, and Beam Models. The extensive “do-it-yourself” portion of the training allows you to apply your knowledge immediately in your professional daily work.

The course 'Geometry preparation with Ansys SpaceClaim Direct Modeler' was great, thanks for hosting it as Live Online Training.

Do you have questions on the training or the eLearning?

When will I receive the final confirmation for my training booking?

Straight after you sign up, an automatic confirmation of receipt will be sent to the email addresses you provided. Once you have successfully verified the data you provided, you will receive your personalized sign-up confirmation, containing further information on course fees, the billing address, etc., by email within two to three working days.  

As soon as the minimum number of attendees has been reached, you will receive a final training confirmation containing further information. If you have booked an on-site training, we recommend that you wait until you have received this final confirmation before booking your travel and accommodation.

If the minimum number of attendees is not reached, we reserve the right to cancel the training seven days before it is due to start at the latest. We are happy to inform you on changing your booking to an alternative date. Please note that we accept no liability for hotel or travel bookings that attendees have already made.

When is the sign-up deadline for a training?

Training places will generally be allocated based on the order in which attendees sign up. For this reason, we always recommend booking for your desired date as early as possible.

As long as a coures still has free places, it can be booked.

At what time do the training courses begin and end?

Usually the training courses start at 9:00 am and end at 5:00 pm of the respective local time. The actual course times will be stated in the booking confirmation. Please note that, depending on the training host, there may be a possible time shift between your and the provider's local time. Therefore all local times are provided with the valid time shift to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). 

Can I test the eLearning offer without obligation?

To get a clear impression of our online learning format, we offer you a trial allowing you access to the starting module of an eLearning course of your choice. No costs, no cancellation period or anything similar. Moreover, with this free test access you can check all the technical requirements for a smooth learning process. You can easily request the free module from any eLearning course.

How much time should I allow for an eLearning course?

Each online course day comprises four eLearning modules. You should ideally allow 90 to 120 minutes of uninterrupted learning time for each module. This will allow you to acquire the knowledge provided by a module and to consolidate it through quiz questions and Ansys exercises. By dividing each module into micro learning units, you can also make good use of smaller time windows, such as on your commute.

For how long can I access the learning content?

Prerequisite for the use of the eLearning courses is the use of a personalized access to the CADFEM learning platform. When purchasing an eLearning course, access to the learning platform is 365 days. As a subscription user, access to the learning platform starts and ends with the start and end of the flat rate. With the start of a further learning product (Learning Subscription, training, eLearning), access to your content is extended by 365 days.
