CAEplex Feature Reviews

12 reviewers had the following to say about CAEplex's features:

Xavier Borras

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

2020-01-20

We re-posted one of your articles (with permission) fot its use in our blog Tribonet.org.

Pros

Cloud-based. It is always annoying to be tight to a coputer where you have your software license.

Cons

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

Nice interface and environment for cloud computing, but needs to catch up in terms of features.

2017-12-05

Testing out simple models.

Pros

Lovely web interface. No software to configure or install.

Cons

Lacking in features that I would need for most analyses (non-linear materials, multi-part contact, line/edge loads and restraints, etc)

Perfect (almost) for occassional FEA analyst

2020-01-14

Pros

Extremely easy to set-up simulation and fast to execute.

Cons

Missing automated reporting tool - will be perfect for the occasional user if there is such a tool.

Thanks for your time Dejan! Indeed, we used to have a report generator but we removed it for the current CAEplex version. We plan to add it back soon as an extension. We will let our users known as a soon as the report generator is back through the CAEplex newsletter.

Design improvemnts via FEA study using CAEplex

2020-01-14

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.

Pros

Always responsive within few minutes if time zone are align.

Cons

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

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

eye-opening, modern technology

2017-08-01

Pros

I head the opportunity to test a beta version of CAEplex with an eye towards its use of webGL-based x3d technology.

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.

Teaching class of FEM Students

2017-08-03

Easy start of the teaching without installation problems

Pros

It is web based; very simple to use and has free starting version which is perfect for small group of students with low budget

Cons

The selection of the different boundary conditions needs some expirience and thinking (how to add a new one, if the old one is accepted)

Thanks for your time and considerations. Indeed, even when we think we are the easiest finite-element package available, we plan to improve the way boundary conditions are entered to make them more intuitive.

The only of his kind. Awesome.

2018-08-01

Pros

First at all, it's free, but your files are public and if you want to make them private, the cost is really low. Excellent software to simulate FEA into the cloud.

Cons

It's new sof they have a lot of thing to improve as the reports, and they could add more options to improve the meshing, but for a free software it's great.

Initial experience.

2020-01-31

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

Pros

Web-based. Works well behind company firewall.

Cons

Cannot delete just uploaded geometry (it is a public project).

Thanks for the feedback. Our plans are limit based, so users cannot delete stuff. Geometries and projects can be hidden from the feed but not deleted.

A Great Option for FEA

2020-01-14

As a designer I am out at ease by knowing I can rely on FEA from CAEplex

Pros

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

Cons

I wish there were more color options for gradients.

Cloud based, don’t have to worry about putting files on USB drive.

Cons

Nothing comes to mind. Only been using the free trial.

It's a good tool for mechanichal parts

2017-07-25

Pros

I thnik it would be a very good tool for the autoparts industry

Cons

I think you could add some fluid simulations, or fluid-solid interaction simulation. In the future, it will be so important to add.

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

2017-07-25

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

Pros

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.
