Every engineer deserves the power of Discovery
ANSYS Discovery Live provides instantaneous 3-D simulation, tightly coupled with direct geometry modeling, to enable interactive design exploration and rapid product innovation. It is an interactive experience in which you can manipulate geometry, materials types or physics inputs, then instantaneously see changes in performance.
Use Discovery Live to test more design iterations in a shorter amount of time, perform feasibility studies on new concepts and bring products to market faster.
ANSYS Discovery Live seamlessly aligns with the 3-D Design family of products and complements ANSYS Discovery SpaceClaim and ANSYS Discovery AIM.
ANSYS Discovery Live relies on the latest GPU technology to provide its computation and visual experience. To run Discovery Live, we strongly recommend that you have:
- A dedicated NVIDIA GPU card based on the Kepler, Maxwell or Pascal architecture (or newer) with at least 4GB of video RAM (8GB preferred) and latest drivers installed (see NVIDIA Driver Downloads). Most dedicated NVIDIA GPU cards produced in 2013 or later will be based on one of these architectures.
If you meet these hardware requirements, downloading and installing the software on your computer will provide you with the best user experience when running ANSYS Discovery Live.
What if I don’t yet have a supported NVIDIA GPU?
If you do not have a graphics card that meets these specifications, you may still experience ANSYS Discovery Live through an the ANSYS Discovery Online Cloud-based trial (you will still need to register to gain access) – but please note that server location and internet connectivity may affect your user experience.
