What's New?

The Ansys Connect product collection is new in 2022 R1 and includes Ansys Minerva, Ansys optiSLang, Ansys Granta and Ansys ModelCenter. Ansys Connect allows you to create a connected digital thread by connecting various simulation tools and the corresponding assets with each other and with the rest of the product lifecycle ecosystem, such as CAD designs, requirements database, system architecture model, and more.

Highlights include:

  • Ansys optiSLang’s new connectors for LS-Dyna, SpaceClaim, Nastran and ModelCenter, along with the new AI/ML-based optimization algorithms from Probaligence, enables orchestrated and optimized simulation workflows.
  • Ansys Minerva allows simulation experts to create apps from their simulation automations that nonexperts can take advantage of  thus minimizing the expertise gap.
  • New in Ansys 2022 R1, Ansys ModelCenter improves the connection between your systems architecture models (SAM) and project requirements to build more accurate simulation models.
  • Ansys Cloud has enhanced admin capabilities that include the ability for admins to create and manage user groups, allocate budgets to company projects, and monitor cloud usage.
