CADthru

CADthru is used to convert CAD data into CFD format. Modifications to the CAD data and/or diagnostics to repair CAD defects, are separate processes. CADthru can automatically create all the input settings required by SC/Tetra, and it will output all the basic geometry data required by SC/Tetra.

Shell models created in CAD: Filled/Hollow areas cannot be recognized

Parts not modeled in CAD, such as resin and packing: Gaps or holes a­ffect physical phenomena and simulation results

Models with many detailed components: Where analysis scale is very large

CADthru diagnoses defects in CAD data, fixes problematic features, and outputs model data that is compatible with Cradle CFD products.

The automatic cleaning function finds defects in CAD data and automatically repairs interfering faces and multiedges.

CAD software is usually used to create the geometry of the solid parts. CFD is used to model the fluid region surrounding or contained within these parts. The extraction function automatically creates the fluid regions from the CAD data.

Part names and colors configured in CAD can be inherited by CADthru and used to automatically define material properties and condition regions. This function is helpful when an analysis model contains many parts or is repeatedly used for parametric studies.
