CAD (Computer-Aided Design) and CAE (Computer-Aided Engineering)  are two important tools used in modern engineering and design. CAD is used to create digital models of products while CAE is used to analyze the behavior of these products under different conditions. To transfer a CAD model to CAE, a mesh is generated and this process involves several steps including CAD import, geometry preparation, mesh generation, mesh optimization. CAE analysis need sophisticated mesh to achieve accurate result. The combination of CAD and CAE tools allows designers and engineers to create more innovative and optimized products.

Moldex3D meshing technology is a powerful pre-processing tool with robust meshing technologies and different mesh elements combinations to boost the work efficiency in mesh preparation, which can generate very fine mesh for complicated 3D geometry. It also provide auto-check and auto-fix functions to ensure the mesh quality for the accuracy of analysis. 
We also have Moldex3D SYNC – CAE tool in CAD software – which provide seamless CAE analysis in CAD software to help engineer modify product design based on complete analysis result, without data transfer.

Overall, the combination of CAD and CAE tools allows designers and engineers to create more innovative and optimized products with greater efficiency and accuracy.
