FEMdesigner Hex

Hex is our powerful Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software embedded within a free solid modeler. You can import from a neutral file (STEP or IGES) from any other CAD system or create your own models then perform the analyses you need, and plot/animate the results in color contours.

Note that the inbuilt modeler is not a substitute for a more capable system, such as Alibre, and is intended mainly as a framework for detailed FEA work on solid models created by other software, just like most other FEA tools. Hence the user interface is more Ansys-like than Alibre-like.

Solid modeling tools in Hex
  • import step, iges & export step, iges, stl files (for 3D printing).
  • import or create sketches then extrude, loft, revolve them to create solids.
  • boolean operations; cut, fuse, split, intersect solids.
  • translation, rotation, patterning of features.
  • fillet, chamfer edges.
