Free student edition of FEMAP now available

February 02, 2018

Getting up to speed on FEA tools is hard work, so to that end, Siemens now offers a free student edition of FEMAP.

FEMAP Student Edition comes with the pre- and postprocessor FEMAP, along with the NX Nastran solver, both a part of Siemens PLM Software’s Simcenter portfolio. Generally the simulation process starts with a geometric model, and within FEMAP you’ll be able to:

  • Access CAD data from almost any source
  • Clean up and idealize the geometry prior to meshing
  • Mesh the geometry to create the finite element model
  • Apply boundary conditions (loads and constraints) and manage analysis setup
  • Submit the model for analysis by NX Nastran
  • Review the calculated results data and evaluate the model behavior

Did we mention the hard work? Check out our introduction to modeling and analysis with FEMAP video. Also keep in mind that the FEMAP Student Edition is intended for academic work. Files created in the student edition can’t be opened in commercial versions of FEMAP and structural model sizes are limited to 32,000 nodes. So don’t stay up late at home cranking out your work files on your student edition!

When you’re ready to turbo-boost your skills, join Applied CAx at one of our popular hands-on FEMAP training sessions. Over the years we’ve seen every type of engineer benefit from our course, from first-time FEA users to people with 8+ years of experience.
