ANSYS Discovery Live revolutionizes product development


On September 7, 2017, ANSYS, Inc. presented its breakthrough technology ANSYS Discovery Live in a worldwide preview. This new tool will change the way of design and support the inventor spirit. With DiscoveryLive the physical product properties are instantaneously reflected, ie directly during geometry modeling.

This live simulation of mechanical, thermal and fluidic mechanical properties enables the designer to directly recognize the physical connections, to immediately evaluate design changes and to develop the product from the outset, not only geometrically but also physically. To date, complex iterations between 3D modeling and simulation have been dispensed with since 3D modeling simulates the physical properties simultaneously.

Discovery Live by yourself


How do you want to use Discovery Live on your computer? We will provide you with a fully functional version free of charge until the end of January. The only prerequisite is that you have a computer with an nVidia graphics card (Kepler platform or newer) with at least 4 GB graphics card memory available.

You want to use Discovery Live on your computer?

We will provide you with a fully functional version free of charge until the end of January. The only requirement: You have a computer with an nVidia graphics card (Kepler platform or newer) with at least 4 GB of graphic card memory available. This is the case? Then register in the Discovery Forum for the download .

You just want to get a taste of Discovery Live in advance - without installation, directly in the Internet browser?

Then use the ANSYS "Cloud Trial": After registering in the Discovery Forum , you can immediately use the search term "Cloud Trial" for up to one hour of Discovery Live in your browser. The examination of imported geometries is not possible (please use our offer of an Amazon cloud machine, see above), the focus is on making predefined examples first steps in the handling.

Live Analysis

The entire process of the simulation needs only a few moments. The boundary conditions can be defined intuitively, the calculation takes only seconds, and you can directly evaluate changes to your geometry. You can see immediately how a fluid flow, the voltage or temperature distribution or the oscillation behavior changes. Direct feedback on the impact of a modification provides a better understanding of the physical mechanisms. New ideas for product design are thus natural.



Discovery Live enables the analysis of fluid mechanics, thermal and structural mechanics. Typical questions which can be answered are:

  • Recognition of backflows or dead zones in internal or external flows
  • Temperature distributions in fluids
  • Temperature distributions in solids including the time profile during heating or cooling
  • Deformation of components and resulting stress distribution
  • Vibration behavior of individual parts and assemblies

Intuitive handling

The slim user interface allows for a quick start. In less than 30 minutes, every engineer can use Discovery Live. The net-free calculation process eliminates the need for machining for geometry cleaning and networking. Network errors are a thing of the past. This is the focus of the development of a physically good design. You will focus on your product instead of on your tools.                                                                                                                                               

Simulation is more than software


Easy handling, instant results - why more? Outstanding tools are the prerequisite for efficient work - but they do not automatically ensure excellent results. Each simulation is the mapping of a physical question into a numerical model. This transfer into the simulation and the reading of the results is essential for the quality of the statements they achieve. With guidance and support, you can reach your goal faster. CADFEM has been supporting companies of various industries in the application of simulation technology and the development of a simulation-based development process for more than 30 years.

Use the knowledge of our experienced engineers already in the test phase! You want to discuss challenging boundary conditions or complex results? Please make a free appointment for an individual coaching for engineering with digital models. Write to us at
Call us at 040 49481000

Suitable hardware can be obtained from us not only for the test phase, but also for the productive use. Ready configured and directly usable. Be it in the form of physical hardware, be it cloud-based.
