ANSYS DesignSpace software is an easy-to-use simulation package that provides designers with tools to conceptualize, design and validate their ideas right on the desktop.


ANSYS DesignSpace software, a subset of the ANSYS Professional product, enables real-world, static structural and thermal, dynamic, weight optimization, vibration mode, and safety factor simulations to be performed on designs without the need for advanced analysis knowledge.

ANSYS DesignSpace (Separate Task):Teaching level products indicated include separate tasks of ANSYS DesignSpace that have no numerical problem-size limits. For example, a 25 task license includes 25 tasks of ANSYS Multiphysics plus 25 tasks of ANSYS DesignSpace.
ANSYS DesignSpace capability - entry level structural and thermal physics capability product that uses the ANSYS Workbench environment; a subset of ANSYS Mechanical capabilities.
