Close and efficient integration between design and calculation software

Close and efficient integration between design and calculation software

Considerable cost optimization in design ensures savings throughout the value chain. Read more on FRECON's own efficient integration method between design and calculation software.

CAD specialists in FRECON develop a unique and far more efficient integration solution than what has previously been seen on the market for design and calculation.

In FRECON we have almost 20 years of experience in construction processes and in optimizing de- sign in regard to product costs, competition, and time-to-market. Hence, we know the importance of a close integration in design and calculation.

However, in FRECON we have not found the excisting integration solutions efficient enough for neither workflows nor cost savings for the customer. There- fore our experienced CAD specialists have come up with a unique and efficient integration solution for the heavy and advanced 3D designs and calculations.

Our FRECON solution is a highly efficient integrati- on solution between CAD programs and simulation software (e.g. PTC Creo and ANSYS), which ensures our customers solid financial savings and raises the standards in processes of structural optimization.

 

Multiple and fast iterations

The integration solution enables us to run multiple and fast iterations. As a result, it provides a shorter and far more efficient turnaround time with a highly optimized product in terms of strength, weight, and price. When working with FRECON, our customers, on customer projects involving strength calculation on complex structures, get the opportunity to choose this unique form of integration.

Because our system makes it possible to go way deeper into the optimization process, we do on a frequently base experience that our integration solution gives our customers significant weight and material savings.

Examples on customer’s solid cost reductions

In one of our customer project we used our integration method to change the shape of a nacelle cover. By reducing the cover from 6 mm glass fiber to 4 mm glass fiber, our customer got a significant cost reduction and a more competitive product.

 

A highly efficient workflow

In FRECON’s integration solution we use Siemens NX and Creo Parametric for design and ANSYS for simulation and calculation. By integrating the CAD programs and our simulation software, we get a highly efficient workflow, which means that our calculators will not have to import a new 3D model every time new calculations are to be made. The close integration ensures, that we can quickly and efficiently make a calculation when changing the design.

 

Frederik Rytter, Senior Solution Specialist og Partner, FRECON:

“The integration solution gives us great opportunities to take the best from both design and calculation software. By running fast calculations, when details are corrected in the design, the final construction is optimized significantly. This is particularly useful in customer projects that includes advanced geometry and more sub-components in the design. At the same time, our solution ensures that the versions we work in are always the latest ones.”

 

THE INTEGRATION SOLUTION REQUIRES SPECIAL WORKING METHODS
When using our integration solution, there are some working methods that needs to be learned and used. In FRECON we like to knowledge share, and hence we always ensure that our customers get a thorough insight and training. For instant, when we are going to work with advanced 3D constructions, we initially start with defining the overall structure and how it can be breached into smaller modules. Additionally, we define the interfaces between the modules.
With this methodical approach, the models are simplified, which makes the calculations easier and faster.

Claus Mølgaard Jensen, Acting CEO / Sales Director, FRECON:

“Due to our several years of experience, we are specia- lists in evaluating how the models and their geometry can be simplified and modeled while always meeting the customer’s specifications and tolerances. Our integration solution, in both software and working methods, supports this.”

Our integration solution is particularly useful in customer projects that includes advanced geometry and more sub-com- ponents in the design. At the same time, our solution ensures that the versions we work in are always the latest ones.
