solidThinking - Inspire

solidThinking InspireTM enables design engineers, product designers, and architects to create and investigate structurally efficient concepts quickly and easily. Inspire uses the Industry leading Altair OptiStruct® technology to generate and analyze design concepts. The software is easy to learn and works with existing CAD tools to help design structural parts right the first time, reducing costs, development time, material consumption, and product weight.

Product Highlights

  • Structurally efficient concept generation and analysis
  • Support for optimization and analysis of parts and assemblies
  • Quickly and easily cleanup and defeature problem areas in the geometry
  • Investigate linear static and normal modes analysis
  • User friendly interface with extremely short learning curve


Design Faster
Generate concepts which meet structural performance requirements at the beginning of the design cycle. This results in significant time savings over the traditional approach of design, validate, redesign to meet structural requirements.

Design Smarter
Inspire makes it easy to perform “what-if” scenarios where package space, connections, load conditions, and shape controls can be modified. Reviewing the resulting concepts often reveals valuable insights.

Design Lighter
Inspire makes efficient use of material, only placing it where required to satisfy structural performance requirements. Reduced design weight leads to material cost savings, performance improvements and reduced shipping costs.
