MSC Apex Generative Design

Smart Generative Design for an unmatched Design for Additive Manufacturing Experience

Not all generative design software is equal

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.
Change is upon us. For the first time you can innovate, improve and validate parts and products in one simple end to end solution. Designers unite, join the MSC ApexGD revolution today.
Designers love MSC Apex Generative Design. Their eyes light up when they use it because it thinks like them, improving parts using subtractive, formed and assembled designs – only faster. Users have experienced 80% reductions in initial design and setup time by combining multiple steps, from a starting geometry through preparation to optimization.
Set the specifications, sit back, relax and then enjoy targeted design suggestions delivered at the speed of light.

MSC Apex Generative Design at a glance:

  • Simplicity – No expert knowledge required for conducting optimizations through a high user-focused software design.
  • Automated Design – Almost automatically generate multiple smoothed design candidates that all satisfy the design criteria while minimizing the weight.
  • Import and Validation – Import existing geometries or mesh, find optimized design candidates, and perform design validation – all inside a single CAE environment.
  • Direct Output – Export geometry that can be directly manufactured and used immediately without manual re-work.
  • One Process – Import the resulting geometries in Simufact Additive or Digimat AM to achieve cost-efficient first-time-right result for every part.

At the heart of MSC Apex Generative Design works our “Generative Design Engine”

MSC Apex Generative Design’s innovative approach has been proven in practice.

It is based on Finite Element Analysis but, unlike traditional methods, does not use a density field, rather utilizes a very fine mesh with well-defined elements. This enables the algorithm to directly evaluate the occurring stresses, as well as reliably derive distinct geometries that are truly unimaginable by human mind.

Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) without Expert Knowledge

MSC Apex Generative Design is designed specifically to generate the detailed and highly complex structures that only additive processes can manufacture. The optimised designs exhibit perfect transitions between structure elements such as struts and shells as well as they contain usually self-supporting structures that ensure the results can be sent straight to print.


We pride ourselves on empowering each client to overcome the challenges of their most demanding projects.

Enteknograte offers a Virtual Engineering approach with FEA tools such as MSC Softwrae(Simufact, Digimat, Nastran, MSC APEX, Actran Acoustic solver), ABAQUS, Ansys, and LS-Dyna, encompassing the accurate prediction of in-service loads, the performance evaluation, and the integrity assessment including the influence of manufacturing the components.
