“Working with Spatial enables our small and highly competent development team, staffed by the top experts from the industry, to focus on our core competency: numerical simulations. Thus, we are able to respond quickly to changes in the dynamic technology environment and new requirements from our customers.” — Norbert Haefke, CEO, FVA GmbH

Market: CAD / CAM, Woodworking, Design and Manufacturing

Challenges: To maintain a competitive advantage, FVA needed to add additional functionality to FVA-Workbench:
• The ability to perform Boolean operations on gear models
• Performing FEA required detailed meshing support
• Calculating mass and column of a gear system

• ACIS® 3D modeling kernel
• 3D Precise Mesh
• 3D InterOp for interoperability
• HOOPS Visualize

• The ACIS API allows FVA to model solid bodies with just a few lines of code, plus provide access to powerful Boolean operations
• 3D Precise Mesh powers the fast meshing needed for FEA
• 3D InterOp enables best-in-class CAD interoperability
