"A good software to use"

What do you like best?

Uptill now for whatever purpose I have used ANSYS, I have never experienced any delays or lags during the simulation. Results obtained were very much accurate with the real-life situations and help me iterate better versions of my models with the best results in consideration.

What do you dislike?

The software is complex to get used to. It takes time and quite some practice to use it to get good results. Also, the software takes a huge load on my PC, so it is a heavy software to use. Although, cannot complain more as I do get good results in return.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am a Product Design engineer, so I usually have projects like designing a gearbox, bicycle frames, casings etc. So, in order to better understand the properties of mechanical materials, ANSYS helps me a lot. Benefits I realized are better results which help me go for better product design.

"Powerful program for mechanical design"

What do you like best?

ANSYS is a professional program for the calculation of mechanical components and structures. The program allows you to make component designs or import them from another CAD program.

With the design of the components or the structure, you can define the material or materials that will form the component, the forces that will act on the component and the rest of the parameters necessary for the calculation.

In addition, it allows you to perform different calculation modes, depending on what you need.

What do you dislike?

The program needs to improve the design section. It is easy to draw simple pieces, but the work is complicated when we try to design complex structures.

Also, many times when you try to import complex parts from another CAD program, they do not appear correctly and you need to redesign some parts.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend this program to other users, since it allows you to carry out virtual tests on products that are still in development stages.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In the electronic design it is necessary to check the durability of the components and the base plates, depending on the conditions in which the final product will be found.

In addition, it is important to check how the final product would be, depending on what materials form it, before manufacturing the product.

On the other hand, in our company we can anticipate the possible failures that may occur in the future products, without the need to manufacture a product and rehearse it.

The program makes our work easier and allows us to save a large amount of money and time.

"My experience with ANSYS Mechanical has been wonderful."

What do you like best?

ANSYS mechanical gives the user a lot of control over how to simulate a problem. It enables the user to select the exact element type and the kind of meshing that the user wants to work with. The biggest advantage is the APDL programming which a person can use to suit his or her simulation requirements.

What do you dislike?

The interface of ANSYS Mechanical is too primitive and a user can have difficulty in visualizing a problem with a complex geometry.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

A person needs patience in understanding how the software works.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has helped me to model complex problems related to field of structural engineering.

"Greater CAE package for self-starters"

What do you like best?

The ease of use. The UI is simple and very user-friendly. Also the automesh gives decent results and saves the effort of manual meshing

What do you dislike?

Manual meshing is very difficult for complex modelling like for example in composite analysis.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Get your hands dirty, its the best way to learn it completely

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Analysis of structural components for static-structural also Modal analysis
