What if there was a better way to perform structural analysis? MSC Apex with MSC Nastran is a truly end-to-end modelling and analysis solution designed to streamline your workflow from meshing through analysis setup and execution to results. And now you can try it for free with our 30-day trial.

Start with CAD and use the MSC Apex Modeler and direct modelling capabilities to streamline and simplify your meshes in a fraction of the time. Validate FEM models and mesh properties, materials, and boundary conditions without using a separate pre-processor. Submit your analysis to run using MSC Nastran, and choose from a variety of analysis types, including statics, buckling and dynamics. Post-process the results in MSC Apex.

The trial edition of MSC Apex seamlessly integrates with MSC Nastran, streamlining the process of model creation, analysis setup, and execution—all within a unified interface. Avoid the time-consuming method of transitioning between separate pre-processing and post-processing environments. With MSC Apex and MSC Nastran, there’s no more waiting to switch, launch, and then gradually validate your models. Analyse your results in the same user-friendly CAE environment.
