FEA users have experienced their share of horror stories when
petforming analysis on problem CAD models. Hidden errors in these files
represent a major obstacle for the Finite Element Analysis process.
Informal studies reveal that analysis users are wasting up to 70% of
their time re-working CAD files before analysis can even begin. The bad
news is that with the growing use and complexity of these models the
situation will only get worse. The good news is that a solution now
exists to solve these problems.
