Partner Products

Our strategic partners have developed the following solutions by incorporating HEEDS into their own products.
CD-adapco™:  STAR-CCM+/Optimate
Explore Your Design Space Using Scriptless Automation and Optimization with STAR-CCM+
Star CCM+ Optimate The coupling of optimization techniques with high-fidelity simulation tools has long been recognized as a powerful combination in a design process, but barriers of time, cost and robustness have hindered the general adoption. CD-adapco, a recognized leader in engineering simulation, is changing the rules of engagement by making the optimization of complex CAE models quick and affordable. Now, STAR-CCM+ leverages its well-known strengths and a newly developed tool, Optimate™, to explore the design space using scriptless automation.

ETA: DYNAFORM OP - Part of the Inventium Suite
Develop and design a formable part more quickly than ever with the DYNAFORM Optimization Platform
Star CCM+ Optimate For many years, tooling engineers have used DYNAFORM to simulate the process of metal stamping and uncover potential issues. Engineers can now go beyond identifying problem areas by incorporating design optimization to improve performance and quality-reducing wrinkling, thinning, and tearing. This streamlines die design, improved product performance and reduces manufacturing time and cost.
