"I cannot leave a discussion of Enventive without mentioning it is fun to use. Sketches and graphical representations of the parts drive the models and the interface is easy to use. " - Eric Pattok, Nexteer Automotive


Enventive model of a valve assembly

Enventive® mechanical engineering software introduces the concept of intelligent modeling, an infrastructure for incorporating product function in geometric models. Enventive’s unique ability to combine design, analysis, and optimization lets you easily:

  • Embed formulas computing functional properties in component models
  • Analyze force variation as a mechanism moves through its range of motion
  • Optimize critical parameters, simultaneously minimizing variation while driving parameters to meet design goals

Enventive Software Benefits

  • Combined geometry, variation, kinematics, and loads
  • Combined geometric and non-geometric data
  • Embedded spreadsheet analysis
  • Automatic detection of critical parameters
  • Easier to learn and use than similar mechanical engineering software

Enventive Software Features

  • Tolerance Analysis: By providing cohesive geometric modeling, equation solving, backsolving, and optimization, Enventive software can perform analyses in a fraction of the time required in competing products.
  • Conceptual Design: Enventive models are comprehensive, working representations of a part—not just geometric sketches.
  • Travel and Effort Studies: Enventive’s force modeling coupled with its equation solving, tolerance analysis, and kinematic capabilities make it a powerful tool for travel and effort studies.
  • Mechanisms: Automatically step a mechanism through its complete range of motion while concurrently running tolerance analysis to assess variation.
  • Smart Components: Enventive’s Smart Components™ accumulate engineering knowledge during product design and preserve the knowledge for reuse in future products.
  • Performance Modeling: Powerful, simultaneous equation solving capabilities combine geometric modeling with mathematical modeling.
  • Design Optimization: Enventive software provides optimization of both critical parameters and tolerances directly from the embedded tolerance analysis report.
