Autodesk Nastran In-CAD

Delivering CAD-embedded advanced finite element analysis


Use advanced mechanical simulation directly in your CAD system with the industry-trusted Autodesk Nastran solver

Autodesk® Nastran® In-CAD software, a general purpose finite element analysis (FEA) tool embedded in your CAD system, is powered by the Autodesk® Nastran® solver and offers simulation spanning across multiple analysis types, such as linear and nonlinear stress, dynamics, and heat transfer. This single product is available as a network license and serves multiple CAD platforms, providing a consistent user experience and eliminating the need for multiple single-platform simulation technologies. It delivers high-end simulation technology in a CAD-embedded workflow so you can make great products.


3D CAD-embedded tool

To meet the demands of an increasingly competitive global market, manufacturing firms face intense pressure to constantly innovate, reduce development cycles and time to market, and avoid in-field failures while staying profitable. There are powerful benefits that a CAD-embedded FEA technology can bring to your product development process. Advanced analysis enables engineers to subject their designs to real-world behavior and optimize product quality for performance before manufacturing. This translates into innovation, better quality, lower costs, and minimal field failure.


By offering an embedded workflow, Autodesk Nastran In-CAD streamlines processes, helping you to maintain your productivity, and eliminate compatibility issues while equipping you with an industry-recognized, professional-level FEA platform. Autodesk Nastran In-CAD delivers powerful FEA technology while keeping the familiarity, ease-of-use, integration, and associativity of your system:


Ease-of-use for Autodesk Inventor and SolidWorks users—Autodesk Nastran In-CAD eliminates the need for multiple single-platform simulation technologies by embedding advanced FEA technology directly into Autodesk® Inventor® software and SolidWorks®, enabling its solid and surface modeling capabilities to provide FEA pre- and post-processing.


Familiar interface and workflow—A single-window CAD/FEA experience provides the same look and feel, menu, and tree-type structures of your CAD system when you develop your FEA model—enabling a workflow conducive to frequent use of simulation for small changes to products that you typically couldn’t make before.


Integrated with powerful CAD model translation—Reduce your learning curve and maintain your productivity by eliminating compatibility issues arising from importing CAD models into different FEA platforms. Rapidly explore how design iterations perform without re-creating the setup with each modification.


True geometry associativity—Part geometry data is accessed directly through your CAD system and features true geometry associativity, so you can easily make changes to your model without having to duplicate work for validation. Explore what-if scenarios easily with full associativity of FEA and CAD data, and validate concepts.
