Pros
It's very simple, easy to use, and the results are so good. I thnik it would be a very good tool for the autoparts industry.

It’s really affordable and offers easy integration with Onshape, plus it’s super quick and doesn’t slow me down.

Useful tool to explore, I love the cloud-based implementation.

Cons
Lack of report generation. You need to do it by yourself.

Pawel K.

A little irritated that I cannot delete geometry and add a new geometry.

Problems with CAEplex which I have solved with my colleges were related to design of plastic components, and prediction of their behavior during load application with thermal stresses.

Design improvemnts via FEA study using CAEplex

Reviewed 2 years ago

Problems with CAEplex which I have solved with my colleges were related to design of plastic components, and prediction of their behavior during load application with thermal stresses. In general with CAEplex we were able to predict and correct the design. This correction allow Us to reduce implementation phase by 6-8 weeks in the project.

Pros

The software is very intuitive and user friendly. There is no need to use various "tricks". You simply upload the geometry, set the boundary conditions and proceed to analysis. The summary allows you to find out if there are errors and at what step, then if everything is fine the program begins to count, which is also shown by the status bar. In addtion even if You are free user the support form CAEplex team is on the highest level. Always responsive within few minutes if time zone are align. If not You get support information via e-mail.

Cons

In some of the cases import of files was difficult , but with support team was solved and proper action were taken.

Vendor response

Thanks for your review Pawel. One alternative to overcome some difficulties with particular CAD files is to use CAEplex directly integrated into Onshape.

Reviewed 2 years ago

We re-posted one of your articles (with permission) fot its use in our blog Tribonet.org. It has been quite succesful, 1200 views already. https://www.tribonet.org/say-modeling-not-simulation/

Pros

Cloud-based. It is always annoying to be tight to a coputer where you have your software license. Floating licenses are usually more expensive and still require for the installation of the software. The cloud-based approach is just perfect to present results to costumers or during meetings. The user interface is beatiful and easy to use.

Cons

I did not spend enough time testing it but I would definitely consider it in the future for thermo-mechanical modelling.

Vendor response

Thanks for your thorough feedback. We look forward to viewing your thermo-mechanical projects online!

I´ve been using the free trial option and it´s really easy to get fast results on your models.

Reviewed 4 years ago

Get a fast resolution and first idea on how some model is going to behave under specific conditions.

Pros

This software have two main features that make it great. First at all, is that you don´t need to have a sophisticated hardware, because CAEplex runs into the cloud, and second is that it´s really easy to use, because the intefaz is great for people how isn´t related with softwares about simulations.

Cons

Maybe, it would be good to have documentation in other lenguages, such as spanish or portuguese, in order to reduce the barrier of entrance at the world of simulation in countries from South America.

Vendor response

Thanks for your review! We are glad our platform behaves as you say in your review, because that is the original goal we designed CAEplex for.

eye-opening, modern technology

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

I head the opportunity to test a beta version of CAEplex with an eye towards its use of webGL-based x3d technology. I was really impressed by its innovative synthesis of an easy to use, no installation required, web interface with a powerful FEM analyzer and solver on high performance servers. It was eye-opening how quickly it was possible to set up the provided example problem and arrive at a full simulation. Very polished.

Cons

Sorry, my experience did not go into enough detail to explore the limitations of CAEplex although I am sure there are a few. Other than elastic rheologies, crack propagation are outside the scope currently but could be targets.

Vendor response

Thanks for your time and for appreciating the technological breakthrough we propose.
