Simcenter 3D integrates fast and accurate solvers that power structural, acoustics, flow, thermal, motion and composites analyses, as well as optimization and multiphysics simulation. Simcenter 3D is available as a standalone simulation environment. It is also available completely integrated with NX delivering a seamless CAD/CAE experience.


Simcenter 3D enables CAE teams to perform advanced analyses for structural, thermal, flow, motion, durability, laminates, or coupled physics. In addition to powerful analysis tools, Simcenter 3D is also one of the fastest, most productive pre-processors for generating accurate mesh data in 1D, 2D and 3D.

Key features of a Simcenter 3D solution include:

  • Enhanced ability to explore design alternatives and understand design/performance trade-offs
  • Reduced or eliminated need for physical prototypes slash cost and development time
  • Automated simulation procedures speed the simulation and development processes
  • Exceptional integration – Simcenter 3D integrates popular CAE tools such as NX Nastran and LMS Samcef. It also has environments that support other popular CAE solvers such as Abaqus, Ansys, LS-Dyna, and MSC Nastran.
