FloMCAD Bridge enables parts and assemblies from Mechanical Computer Aided Design (MCAD) software such as Creo Parametric, SolidWorks and CATIA to be transferred easily and rapidly to FloTHERM for thermal analysis.
FloMCAD Bridge intelligently filters the geometrical data for a particular part or assembly and creates a simplified “thermal equivalent” for analysis purposes. This is critical because production quality MCAD solid models contain a vast amount of thermally insignificant geometric detail such as fillets, small holes, chamfers and screw treads that provide no accuracy benefit if included but can drastically slow down the solution process. The ability to defeature a part to match it’s thermal importance prior to translation offers a massive improvement in the efficiency of the model creation workflow process.
