SimLab is a process-oriented finite element modeling software especially suited for solid element modeling. A variety of very well laid out processes are included and will accelerate your work significantly.

SimLab Introduction Video Watch this quick introduction video to learn how SimLab can help you.

SimLab improves the productivity of the model build process by 60% Renault use SimLab to automate the build of complex structures based on the concept CAD models. Read the Renault Case Study
SimLab allows you to quickly and accurately simulate engineering behavior of complex assemblies. Modeling tasks are automated to reduce human errors and time spent manually creating finite element models and interpreting results. SimLab is not a traditional off-the-shelf pre- and post-processing software but a vertical application development platform that captures and automates simulation processes.
“With SimLab the time for pre-processing is dramatically reduced — from as much as four days down to just two to four hours for the same job.”
–Rohit Ramkumar, Manager CAE Group
