What is Inspire?

solidThinking Inspire enables design engineers, product designers, and architects to create and investigate structurally efficient concepts quickly and easily. Traditional structural simulations allow engineers to check if a design will support the required loads. Inspire enhances this process by generating a new material layout within a package space using the loads as an input. The software is easy to learn and works with existing CAD tools to help design structural parts right the first time, reducing costs, development time, material consumption, and product weight.

The latest release of Inspire, 'Inspire 2014' introduces multiple new enhancements including:
  • Geometry simplification tools
  • Smoothing options
  • Linear static analysis
  • Concentrated mass parts

      Customer Testimonials

      Sponsor Logo "Inspire provides a tool that can quickly suggest ideal part geometries, giving an opportunity to reduce development cycle time and enhancing the knowledge of the engineer regarding structural requirements of the component." Stefan Terebesi, Sr. Engineer at Key Safety Systems, Inc., a Tier 1 manufacturer of automotive safety equipment.
      Sponsor Logo "Reducing part and assembly mass is important to us and Inspire shows us how we can do this while also increasing the durability of structural components. The great thing is the rapid feedback from design to an optimized shape." Martin W. Dirker,Technical Specialist at Navistar, Inc.
      Sponsor Logo "I can use [Inspire] to solve structural problems, to find structural fitness… But what's more interesting is that you can reinvent structural systems. Architects can build buildings, but the art of architecture is about rethinking what a building is." Dr. Peter Macapia, Adjunct Assistant Professor at Pratt Institute; architect, artist, and founder of labDORA.
