For many companies, the bottleneck in simulation and its 
stronger integration in the design process has been the 
lengthy time required to generate a mesh. In many typical 
industrial applications, upwards of 85% of the simulation 
effort can be spent generating the volume mesh from large, 
detailed CAD assemblies. Numerous obstacles exist as one 
prepares the geometry for analysis, such as too many 
internal and external details, imperfections, incomplete 
geometry or overlaps/intersections of parts and gaps. In 
response to these CAD issues, ANSYS is proud to introduce 
its next generation of surface wrapping technology, TGrid 

Please join us for a free seminar where you will learn how 
the TGrid Wrapper can help you achieve:

A Much Faster Turnaround Time: ANSYS meshing technology can 
help you produce simulation results rapidly even when 
starting from complicated and poor-quality CAD data. For 
example, complete volume meshing of a fully dressed 
vehicle, including the detailed underhood environment, can 
now be obtained in days as compared to months of manual 
work using the traditional method 
More Accuracy: The simulation model will be representative 
of a more realistic geometry. The CAD data is meshed as is, 
without any geometric simplifications 
More Fine-Tuned Design: Faster turnaround time allows an 
engineer to perform many more design iterations during the 
given timeline of the product design cycle, resulting in 
increased quality of the final product 
Increased Productivity: By eliminating the intensive manual 
effort engineers invest in producing high-quality meshes, 
they can instead focus their time and expertise in more 
valuable aspects of engineering analysis and design, 
increasing their productivity and contribution to the 
At this seminar you can expect to see a live product 
demonstration, an in-depth overview of the technology and 
detailed information on numerous industrial-level cases 
completed during our development and testing process.
