FEA Interfaces

LIMIT offers Interfaces to all major commercial Finite Element Analysis (FEA) codes. The standard license always includes one interface. Additional interfaces are licensed separately. Please refer to the interface documentations to see which element types are supported for specific FEA codes.

The interfaces included are:

  • ABAQUS (.inp and .odb)
  • ANSYS (.inp and .rst)
  • MSC-NASTRAN, NX-NASTRAN, OPTISTRUCT, RADIOSS (.bdf or .dat and .op2)
  • MSC-MARC (.t16-Interface) (.bdf and .t16)
  • Universal Interface for currently unsupported codes.

Usually the interfaces are available for the latest versions of the commercial FEA codes. For detailed information please refer to the interface document here (.pdf) or contact our support.
