CD-adapco's Surface Wrapper, now in its third generation, works by "shrink-wrapping" a high-quality tessellated surface mesh onto the geometry: closing holes, removing double surfaces, defeaturing or retaining detail as required. It solves problems with intersecting surfaces and obtains the "wetted" surface. Starting from a complex CAD assembly, it provides a high-quality surface mesh in minutes. When introduced into existing CAE processes, the surface wrapper cuts weeks of CAD clean-up work in preparing large, complex 3D CAD for FEA/CFD/CAE simulation. The company provides engineering simulation (CAE) solutions for fluid flow, heat transfer, and stress.
