Strength/stress test software

Recommended Posts

Posted · Strength/stress test software

Given a STEP model and material parameters is there software that can model the stress points of the model? I mainly create enclosure prototypes with my UM2+, the target is a molded part eventually. I would like to get some insight by means of computational analysis (FEA?) to understand the weak points of the design when certain force parameters are applied. I know there is all sorts of FEA software but I am not too familiar with these additionally, many have their own specializations.

 

Your recommendations pls...

For general stress analysis all the major cad systems has their built in FEA modules that usually is rather easy to handle for non analysis experts.

 

For stand alone system (yet with cad integrations) my "go to" package is Ansys. Harder to learn and use but has all the bells and whistles you can ask for.

Ahw, shocks... of course. I use Fusion 360 and completely forgot it has more than just the modelling part. Funny, I've been looking all over all the while sitting on top of what I need. Story of my life...
