As engineering simulation expands across all facets of the product lifecycle, product complexity increases. This means engineers and product designers face the challenge of integrating unique components within a design, and ensuring that they work together. For this reason, many engineering and product design firms rely on Ansys. Selecting the proper BOXX Ansys workstations that will maximize your workflow is critical. As Ansys is a highly sophisticated CAE software with a number specific applications, BOXX strongly recommends that you contact one of our Ansys performance specialists at 877.877.BOXX to custom-configure your ideal workstation.
From CPUs to GPUs and more, BOXX Technical Marketing Manager Phil Lowrey discusses the ideal workstation configuration options for your specific Ansys workflow.
Because Ansys software is relegated to a specific number of cores, you need a system that will maximize the performance of your core license. In other words, don’t buy an eight-core Ansys workstation for a sixteen-core Ansys license. BOXX recommends an additional two to four cores over and above the Ansys core license to allow for your operating system and other processes that may be running in the background. BOXX Ansys solutions feature professionally performance tuned Intel® Core™, or Intel® Xeon® processors, 2TB of RAM, and plenty of storage. Contact one of our Ansys performance specialists to custom-configure your ideal workstation.
Simulation-driven product development takes engineering simulation to another level and the depth of Ansys software, coupled with its scalability, comprehensive multiphysics foundation, and adaptive architecture, sets it apart from other CAE tools. With finite element analysis (FEA) tools, you can customize/automate your simulations and parameterize them to analyze multiple design scenarios. For this workflow, BOXX Ansys recommended hardware includes the APEXX S3 featuring a professionally performance tuned Intel® Core™ processor.
Ansys CFD software allows you to model fluid flow and other related physical phenomena, requiring as many cores as you can provide. For this workflow, choose an APEXX W3 or W4 featuring Intel® Xeon® processors. Contact one of our Ansys performance specialists to custom-configure your ideal workstation.
If you’re a product designer or engineer on-the-go, choose an Ansys laptop solution that can deliver and support desktop-level computing performance. The ultra-thin, run-and-gun solution, GoBOXX SLM features an Intel® Core™ processor, NVIDIA RTX graphics, and 32GB of RAM for moderately complex Ansys workflows. Contact one of our Ansys performance specialists to custom-configure your ideal workstation.
"Once we got the BOXX systems, we all were trying to use them instead, because running simulations on them cut our time down from hours to minutes. When I run a simulation overnight and come back in the morning, it will be running smooth or finished. BOXX improved our workflow."
Ansys, a major player in the world of engineering simulation, features an impressive portfolio of engineering simulation software, enabling users to solve complex design challenges. But in order to optimize its features, you have to run it on purpose-built hardware.
Ansys Discovery Live delivers instantaneous 3D design simulation with direct geometry modeling, for interactive design exploration and rapid product innovation.
