Siemens’ newest version of Simcenter 3D, its flagship environment for multidisciplinary computer-aided engineering, offers new comprehensive solutions across multiple simulation disciplines. Key features:
- Powerful generative design workflows support fully integrated topology optimization and Convergent Modeling for efficient design and simulation.
- Advanced solutions deliver on Simcenter’s strategy for structural dynamics, motion and acoustics, delivering superior functionality and performance.
- Improved industry workflows include universal connections support for efficient modeling of large assemblies.
Simcenter 3D is an advanced standalone CAE application for analysts and discipline experts that works with data from any CAD source. Being built on the Siemens NX platform, it of course works seamlessly with NX CAD. With more enhancements than any previous release, the newest Simcenter 3D—part of Siemens’s Simcenter portfolio of simulation and test solutions for predictive engineering analytics—looks to revolutionize how simulation engineers can help drive design direction in industries such as automotive, aerospace and industrial machinery.

The new release integrates significant capabilities that were previously available in legacy simulation tools such as LMS Virtual.Lab and Samtech Samcef. Integration and expansion of these capabilities into Simcenter 3D’s unified, scalable and open environment aims to help engineers, analysts and designers improve their overall productivity, and give their organizations access to a broad yet deep array of simulation technology.
Scale, depth, speed of integration work all impress
The scope, scale, depth and—perhaps above all—swift, determined execution of Siemens’ work to intelligently integrate its many CAE-related acquisitions over the past handful of years is unsurpassed by anything comparable we can recall anywhere else in the industry. The latest Simcenter 3D release, and Siemens’ continued progress in realizing its overall Simcenter vision, is testament to the high caliber of both its technologists and its senior management—few companies in any industry can boast the same number of truly world-class executives and experts shepherding and coordinating the various Siemens PLM Software businesses and product families.
