Technique 3D AutoCad & Finite Element Modelling

Basic Capabilities

3D AutoCad provides the user the ability to create a 2D or 3D computer generated models of a desired part. These models can subsequently be collected together to form assemblies. This facilitates an overall working view of entire assembly allowing user interaction. Finite Element Modelling is a computational technique for design optimisation and a powerful tool for understanding failure mechanisms.

Capable of generating design changes for precision manufacturing companies. Used to create 2D and 3D models in for finite element analysis. 
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is a powerful, computer-based modelling tool, applicable to a wide range of industrial sectors for the design and development of products. SEAM possesses FEA software capable of modelling complex components and systems such as thermal analysis and coupled-physics capabilities involving acoustic, piezoelectric, thermal-structural and thermoelectric analysis.
