"We can conceptualize design concepts 10 times faster in Enventive than we can with our native CAD system. The Enventive constraint model lets us evaluate design changes as quickly as we can think of the changes... in fact, the software often leads the designer to these changes.

About Enventive Design Optimization Software

Enventive is a mechanical engineering design system that takes mechanical designs through every phase, from initial concept, to preliminary  design, to variational analysis and optimization.

By combining geometric, mathematical, and kinematic modeling with automated variation analysis, optimization capabilities, and GD&T simulation, Enventive enables engineers to simultaneously optimize critical parameter values and their tolerance limits, giving them greater insight into their products.

Enventive helps engineers understand how real world variances affect design before detailed design occurs, resulting in significant savings in time, effort and money.

About Enventive Engineering, Inc.

Enventive Engineering, Inc., is a privately held Delaware corporation, founded in 2002.

Enventive Engineering is dedicated to helping mechanical engineers succeed in the areas of design, analysis, and optimization by providing them with technologies that enable reliable identification of potential design problems early in product development.

Enventive Engineering develops, maintains and supports software distributed to companies based mainly in the US and Europe, with users as far-ranging as China, India, South Africa, and Brazil. Enventive Engineering customers include several Fortune 500 companies as well as smaller companies representing a variety of fields, including automotive, aerospace/defense, medical, electrical components, office equipment, and appliances.
