Just having a look through the specs for Alibre and the specs for FEA.

The specs all only mention FEA for single part designs. Is there an additional module for FEA on assemblies? And how much is the add-on?

Sorry if its shown somewhere but I couldnt seem to find anything Smile

Also between the three 3D packages that caddit sells - Alibre, T-Flex and VariCAD which would you consider best for capital machine design such as assembly machines (eg pick and place machines), robotic grippers, conveyors etc?

Being able to import autocad and solidworks drawings is of prime concern as well.

This is all the information we could get about this:

"Yes, Algor can analyze assemblies and has advanced technical capabilities. You can learn more at our website (www.algor.com) or you may submit your request for more information directly to info@algor.com"

UPDATE 08.05.09 - Alibre has updated their website and have published the following information about Algor Designcheck:

"Some additional features to make your job easier include:

•Direct CAD/CAE data exchange with Alibre Design for single parts
•Intelligent, automatic, feature-based mesh refinement tools and point-and-click definition of areas where a finer mesh is desired
•Right-click application, modification and deletion of surface forces, surface constraints and FEA properties
•Built in tutorials make it easy to learn
•Straightforward user interface"

Hopefully that gives you the real answer to your question. Unfortunately one of Alibre's partners was not especially helpful in giving us the straightforward answer we were first hoping for...
