Altair in Troy Releases 2 New Simulation Platforms for Manufacturers


Troy’s Altair, a simulation technology company, today announced the release of the Altair Inspire simulation-driven design platform, as well as the Altair 365 cloud collaboration platform.

The Altair Inspire platform enables manufacturers to use simulation to drive the design process. It brings together simulation solutions for generative design, engineering analysis, and manufacturability under a single user environment.

“We believe the future of successful product development will rely upon an increasingly broad simulation user community,” says James R. Scapa, founder, chairman, and CEO of Altair.  “These new releases are part of a path toward simulation access for every designer and engineer at every phase of product development, from concept to manufacturing to in-service operation.”

Altair is also debuting its Altair 365 engineering collaboration platform on Microsoft Azure. It allows customers the flexibility to access Altair Inspire and the entire solidThinking suite in the cloud under its solidThinking units licensing model. Altair 365 offers additional services, including visual collaboration with peers, version control, secure data management, and scalable, high-performance computing resources.

“We are thrilled to introduce Altair Inspire and Altair 365,” says James Dagg, chief technology officer. “This platform release vastly expands upon Inspire’s leading generative design and simulation capabilities to include manufacturing solutions for casting, metal forming, and extrusion processes, with more to come in the future. Our goal is to make simulation-driven design a reality by continuing to place technology like Altair Inspire in the creative hands of all designers and engineers to drive innovation throughout the development process.”

Altair Inspire is available through both Altair’s HyperWorks and solidThinking suite offerings.

The company works to transform design and decision making by applying simulation, machine learning, and optimization throughout product life cycles. The company operates offices in 24 countries.
