Products > GeomSim

GeomSim provides the Simulation Modeling Suite with unique capabilities to access geometric information. A unified topological representation provides all of Simmetrix' products with direct access to geometry without introducing errors due to translation. Although the unified topological representation makes all geometry sources have equivalent representations, it ties directly to the underlying native representation of the model which is used to answer all geometric queries.

GeomSim Core

Provides unified topological and geometric queries for all geometry sources supported by GeomSim. Add additional information to models through a rich system for the specification of geometry-based attributes.

GeomSim Advanced

Provides geometry manipulation and augmentation that works with all geometry sources supported by GeomSim.

GeomSim Abstract

GeomSim Abstract provides geometry-independent problem specification that is invariant with respect to design changes.

GeomSim interfaces come in four flavors:

GeomSim Int (ACIS/Granite/Parasolid)– provides an interface to modeling kernels for our customers who have an existing license for the modeling kernel. GeomSim Int requires that you license a geometric modeling kernel separately. This flavor is only available with the Simulation Modeling Suite.

GeomSim Krnl (ACIS/Granite/Parasolid)– provides an interface to modeling kernels for our customers through the use of neutral files for ACIS (SAT), Granite (prt,asm,g) or Parasolid (X_T). These GeomSim modules are appropriate if you do not have a license of a geometric modeling kernel and would like to access the neutral files generated by the geometric modeling kernels for simulation modeling. GeomSim Krnl does not require that you license any other software.

GeomSim CAD (ProE/Unigraphics/SOLIDWORKS)– provides direct access to CAD systems for our customers through the use of CAD system toolkits (e.g. Pro/Toolkit). These GeomSim modules are appropriate if you would like your application within a CAD system or with a CAD system that is not based on one of the supported geometric modeling kernels. GeomSim CAD requires that you license the appropriate CAD system toolkit separately.

GeomSim Discrete - import meshes from a wide variety of standard formats. Model topology can be created from the mesh information based on both simulation features (loads, boundary conditions, etc.) and geometric features. The resulting mesh and model can be used with MeshSim.
