Easy-to-use & learn
MSC Apex was designed to have multi-purpose tools so as to make the application easy to use. It also features numerous learning aids such as tutorials, video based documentation, workflow and at-mouse instructions which promotes single day productivity.
MSC Apex allows the import of many common CAD and neutral geometry formats and exports in the near universal bdf/dat format readable by most other FEA pre-processors.
MSC Apex Modeler has an intuitive interface and many operations can be performed by simply grabbing an entity with the mouse and moving it into place. There is a powerful set of tools too for eliminating or adjusting common features such as holes, fillets and chamfers.
Direct Modeling – allows users to create and edit geometry interactively. Simply select the entities of interest, such as a face, edge or vertex, and push, pull, or drag to implement any modifications. Direct Modeling is complemented with built in meshing technology.
Direct Modeling and Meshing – For models that have already been meshed and require further geometry modification, use any of the Direct Modeling or Geometry Clean-up/Repair tools and the mesh will be immediately regenerated.
Powerful mid-plane modelling
For thin-walled structures where a shell mesh is the best representation of the geometry MSC Apex Modeler has powerful tools for extracting a mid-plane and assigning thickness and offsets to the resulting mesh.
If you waste hours and days each year on preparing geometry for your FEA process and would like to see what MSC Apex could do for your process we can support you with a free no-obligation trial on your own geometry.

MSC Solutions product guide
Desktop Engineering has concluded its annual BeyondBIM virtual event with a broad consensus that in the future the construction industry needs to grasp new technologies to drive improved processes, together with recognising the need to train in these new methods.
Since the start of the COVID-19 crisis companies in the aerospace design and manufacturing sector have been particularly affected by the economic impact of the disruption to worldwide economies. Some have seen their orders and revenues drop immediately by sometimes 50% driven by the reduction in production of new aircraft.
These companies have had to quickly reduce costs and take advantage of any state support.
However, those with low cash reserves have seen the need to restructure through some form of merger, sale or even some type of insolvency process.
“We wouldn’t have got our first car to the grid without Desktop Engineering’s help.”
