solidThinking Inspire

Design Faster, Smarter and Lighter

Inspire is easy to use and works with existing CAD tools to help generate and investigate structurally efficient concepts quickly and easily.
solidThinking Inspire helps design engineers create parts right the first time, reducing costs, development time, material consumption, and product weight. With its easy to use interface, new users need just a few hours of training and many require none at all.

Inspire Benefits

Design Faster
Generate concepts which meet structural performance requirements at the beginning of the design cycle. This results in significant time savings over the traditional approach of design, validate, redesign to meet structural requirements.

Design Smarter

Inspire makes it easy to perform “what-if” scenarios where package space, connections, load conditions, and shape controls can be modified. Reviewing the resulting concepts often reveals valuable insights.

Design Lighter

Inspire makes efficient use of material, only placing it where required to satisfy structural performance requirements. Reduced design weight leads to material cost savings, performance improvements and reduced shipping costs.
