Why Extrude Metal?
Design Better Products
Altair Inspire Extrude Metal was designed to be used in the earliest concept design phase. When ideal concepts are realized early in this process, costly failed prototypes and redesigns can be avoided. Using Altair Inspire Extrude Metal, the entire process can be radically shifted upfront during the die design stage with virtual simulation, before any die is fabricated. This drastically reduces cost while vastly improving the quality.
Easy to Use
Altair Inspire Extrude Metal is incredibly easy to learn and use. Standard training sessions for Altair Inspire Extrude Metal last only 8 hours and many users can learn Altair Inspire Extrude Metal with no organized training at all!
Save time, materials, product weight, and costs with Altair Inspire Extrude Metal's industry automatic bearing optimization, visible and invisible defect prediction capabilities.
Geometry Creation and Simplification
Correct, modify, and de-feature solid models using Altair Inspire Extrude Metal’s modeling tools.
Altair Inspire Extrude Metal has built in easy to use bearing optimization module which can start with initial guess and optimize it.
Investigate linear static and normal modes analysis on a model and visualize displacement, factor of safety, percent of yield, tension and compression, von Mises stress, and major principal stress.
Altair Inspire Extrude Metal is packaged with a material library including various aluminum, steel, magnesium, and titanium alloys. Custom materials can also be added.
