ansa v14.0.0 image
  • A new Graphical User Interface improves the working efficiency through additional icons, a new layout, and colored grouped toolbars.
  • The Selection tool has been enhanced and made available for all functions.
  • CATIA, NX, Pro/ENGINEER and SolidWorks CAD files can now be directly opened in ANSA.
  • A new interoperability with SpaceClaim allows direct geometry modifications, through an export-modify-retrieve loop.
  • A new volume meshing algorithm allows now to generate trimmed hexahedral and polyhedral elements without the need for watertight volume definitions.
  • A new tool has been introduced for rapid basic volume entities creation.
  • Boolean operations with volume and faces are now available.
  • The usage of size boxes has been extended to also control the element length for all shell mesh-improvement functions.
  • A new dynamic interface for the Connection Manager simplifies and enriches the assembly operations.
  • The Part Manager provides now easier model handling through a new configuration tool that organizes and handles a model into different configurations.
  • The Comparison tool has been simplified and improved, through the usage of more filtering tools, smart navigation, advanced settings and the support of a new option to compare two models independently from the one currently open and regardless of their format.
  • New SESTRA, THESEUS, pre-processing interface modules are now available.
  • The Kinetics module now supports static equilibrium, contact, Initial Conditions, and Kinematic simulations.
  • Additional keywords for all Solvers are now supported (i.e. LS-DYNA *ALE, *FSI and ABAQUS *CO-SIMULATION).
  • New Morphing Boxes are now available (i.e. Tetra, Pyramid) providing flexibility in adjusting boxes to more complex geometry. Additionally, 1-D morphing entities are now supported.
  • A Library of predefined shapes (i.e. L, I, Z), allows for rapid creation of new Cross Sections.
  • Python is fully supported by ANSA, as its main scripring language, while ANSA retains compatibility with the legacy BETA script language.

  • Asynchronous reading of results now allows working on META while reading results. Additionally the loading process can be canceled.
  • JT files can now be read and saved. CFD++ geometry and result files are now supported. Additionally, h3d files are also supported.
  • New features on existing decks are added including:
    • Abaqus elements related to geomechanical analysis (C3D[4-20]P elements).
    • VDI2014 composite results for Nastran and Abaqus.
    • Nastran sensitivity results from .op2 and .pch files.
    • The direct support of .op2 files in 2D Plot.
    • Nastran DMIG elements and associated Strain energy results.
    • Support of different mesh per time step for OpenFoam.
  • Vector results are now handled separately through a different label menu and a different fringebar.
  • Visualization of material and fiber orientation has been added.
  • New identification entity (Parametric Point) can perform queries in the inner area/space of elements. Additionally the definition of parametric points either on a line or on a circle through specific GUI is added.
  • Medina and ANSYS results are now supported in Linear Combination tool.
  • The MetaDB Translator is now available in the standard ?ETA installation allowing for batch-saving results in .metadb files.
  • Report Composer has been improved in the creation and the editing of tables. Hyperlinks work also when showing the presentation through µETA. PDF report has been enhanced with searchable text and links.
  • NVH ANSYS results are now supported in MAC, Modal response and FRF Assembly tool. Cavity modes can now be imported from a separate .op2 file in Modal response tool. Auto-grouping of curves output from Modal Response and FRF Assembly tools is now available. Moreover, ERP toolbar that calculates equivalent radiated power results has been added.
  • Calculation of responses with respect to a user-defined local coordinate system is now available in Modal Response and FRF Assembly.
  • Streamlines can now be animated as moving segments, particles, or arrows.
  • Python is fully supported by µ???, as its main scripring language, while ANSA retains compatibility with the legacy BETA script language.


ANSA files saved by version 14.0.0 can not be opened by previous versions.
The .metadb files saved by µETA version 14.0.0 are compatible and can be opened by earlier versions of µETA.

The Cross-Platform Report: A New Connected Community

Simultaneous Usage Continues to Grow as We Become More and More Connected

Tablets and smartphones are proving to be new, novel and potentially necessary utilities, aiding Americans in connecting with the people and content they desire.  These devices enable a new trans-generational community of connected consumers that crosses age, gender, race and ethnic lines to truly participate in the multitasking that used to be reserved for the young, or tech savvy elite.  Smartphones now have a market penetration greater than 50 percent, and tablets are already in nearly 20 percent of US TV homes.

While tablets and smartphones offer the freedom of mobility, close to 40 percent of Americans now use their tablets or smartphones while watching TV at least once a day, and twice as many do it at least once a month.  Modernity, in its new form, enables myriad content access points. It’s a fact of which Americans are taking full advantage. These devices are omnipresent, and not just among the youth.

Today, more than 39 percent of people use their smartphone at least once a day while watching TV, 62 percent say they do this multiple times a week and 84 percent do at least once a month.
