Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence

Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence helps industrial manufacturers develop the disruptive technologies of today and the life-changing products of tomorrow.

MSC Software Corporation is an American simulation software technology company based in Newport Beach, California, that specializes in simulation software. In February 2017, the company was acquired by technology company Hexagon AB.

MSC Software develops simulation software technology that enables engineers to validate and optimize their designs using virtual prototypes. Customers in almost every part of manufacturing use our software to complement, and in some cases even replace the physical prototype “build and test” process that has traditionally been used in product design.

Cradle CFD

Cradle CFD is a series of practical, state-of-the-art CFD simulation and visualization software.

MSC Dytran

Dytran is an explicit finite element analysis (FEA) solution for simulating short-duration events like impact and crash, and to analyze the complex nonlinear behavior that structures undergo during these events.


Digimat technology provides design tools that give the user 100% confidence in their composites products thanks to an accurate description of the local composite behavior.


Adams helps engineers to study the dynamics of moving parts, and how loads and forces are distributed throughout mechanical systems.

MSC Actran

Actran is the premier acoustic simulation software to solve acoustics, vibro-acoustics, and aero-acoustics problems. Used by automotive manufacturers and suppliers, aerospace and defense companies, and consumer product manufacturers.

MSC Nastran

MSC Nastran is a multidisciplinary structural analysis application used by engineers to perform static, dynamic, and thermal analysis across the linear and nonlinear domains, complemented with automated structural optimization and award winning embedded fatigue analysis technologies, all enabled by high performance computing.


CAEfatigue is a random response and vibration fatigue solver for the frequency domain plus a fatigue solver for the time domain. It works with mixed random and deterministic loadings or standard time domain-based loadings to provide fatigue life and damage predictions, as well as several forms of response statistics.

MSC Apex Generative Design

MSC Apex Generative Design provides a truly end to end solution for designers making high-precision, industrial components. It takes you from screen to machine faster and with less human intervention than any other software.

MSC Patran

Patran is the world's most widely used pre/post-processing software for Finite Element Analysis (FEA), providing solid modeling, meshing, analysis setup and post-processing for multiple solvers including MSC Nastran, Marc, Abaqus, LS-DYNA, ANSYS, and Pam-Crash.

Simufact Additive

Simufact Additive is a scalable software solution for the simulation of metal-based additive manufacturing processes which focuses on powder bed melting (L-PDF) and metal binder jetting (MBJ) processes.

Simufact Welding

Simufact Welding is used for modelling and optimising a wide range of fusion and pressure welding processes, taking into account weld sequence and clamping. Processes such as arc welding, laser beam welding, electron beam welding, brazing, resistance spot welding as well as the generative manufacturing process ‘Direct Energy Deposition’ (DED or WAAM) can be modelled in Simufact Welding.

Simufact Forming

The software covers all essential areas of forming technology: forging, cold forming, sheet metal forming, all major incremental processes and mechanical joining. Simufact Forming provides support in microstructure simulation, calculation of die load, material flow and prediction of material properties in the course of conventional and inductive heat treatment.

MSC Marc

Marc is a powerful, general-purpose, nonlinear finite element analysis solution to accurately simulate the product behavior under static, dynamic and multi-physics loading scenarios. Marc's versatility in modeling nonlinear material behaviors and transient environmental conditions makes it ideal to solve your complex design problems.


MaterialCenter is a Materials Lifecycle Management System designed to link material specialists to mechanical simulation. MaterialCenter captures data from integrated processes to ensure full traceability across the enterprise and throughout the product lifecycle. It addresses unique process and data requirements, and drives product innovation in complex materials such as alloys, elastomers, plastics, composites, and many more.

MSC Apex

CAE specific direct modeling and meshing solution that streamlines CAD clean-up, simplification and meshing workflow.MSC Apex Modeler is a CAE specific direct modeling and meshing solution that streamlines CAD clean-up, simplification and meshing workflow. The solution features sophisticated and interactive tools that are easy to use and easy to learn.

MSC Co-Simulation

Co-simulation provides engineers with a unique, more complete & holistic performance insight by coupling together multiple simulation disciplines. Everything from acoustics to multibody dynamics (MBD), Aerodynamics , hydrodynamic vibration, complex heat transfer, to structural analysis, and explicit crash dynamics can be connected together in MSC.

ODYSSEE: AI & Machine Learning

ODYSSEE CAE is a unique and powerful CAE-centric innovation platform that allows engineers to apply Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Reduced Order Modelling (ROM) and Design Optimization to workflows. It allows you to benefit from modern data science technology by creating cost efficient digital twins through real-time predictive modeling and optimization for both CAE simulation data and physical test data.
