Pros: The numerous features available in ANSYS make it essential for design verification and modeling. As a graduate researcher, designing a new experimental apparatus necessitates knowing the potential loading that will be imposed on the system, and even the flow field analysis (checking for laminar flow). ANSYS provides enough online resources to quickly learn how to create a model, create an adequate mesh, and setup the proper boundary and load conditions for the analysis. The end results have aided in improving engineering designs. I highly recommend learning and being exposed to ANSYS early as an engineer.

Cons: The overall interface is not that user-friendly at first. A lot of the different setup parameters, whether meshing, boundary conditions, load conditions, physical constants, or mesh type, are all often found on their own separate drop-down window, which makes navigating between different settings and properly setting up the model quite confusing at first.

The built-in modeling functions are also not robust enough to model anything complex. It is definitely recommended to import a model from a devoted CAD program.

Overall: Getting past the initial learning curve of knowing how to properly setup a simulation, without over-constraining the system, can be quite frustrating. But when done properly, with help from experts and online resources, the end results can be extremely valuable for research and design applications in engineering, and can help guide future design improvements.

Pros: Excellent GUI. Very user friendly. High accuracy and reliability. Has numerous modules for all types of analysis.

Cons: Reading mesh of imported geometry should be worked upon a little bit. Several instances have occurred wherein mesh was not read correctly leading to waste of time.

Overall: ANSYS has gone and made a designer's job easier. I mean,most designers will agree that undertaking analysis the conventional way is, lets be honest, way too tedious in this era. Now ANSYS has gone and made things much simpler for us. And with the user friendly GUI of the Workbench, ANSYS has taken ease and reliability of analysis several notches up.

That being said, it is also to be noted that with the above mentioned user-friendliness inclusions has enhanced the potency of the software. The accuracy and reliability of solutions dished out by the software is spot on.

Also for small to medium sized analysis (which is done most of the time), ANSYS does not take a toll on the PC. Analysis times are quite fast.

Overall a great software to have for analysis, simulations, design optimization, design verification, etc. This, coupled with decades of development of this software makes it one of the must haves for any design organization.

Recommendations to other buyers: A must have for any design organization.

Pros: In addition to all the different types of analysis available to apply in the pieces, you have a really friendly interface. Your pieces can be made in the Ansys DesignModeler program or be imported from other 3D CAD tools. In addition, you have refining tools for meshing to focus on areas of interest, either by its state of charge or its particular shape.

Cons: If the size of the element chosen in the meshes is very small, the simulation can take an excessive time. The issue would be related to the processing capacity of the computer.

It is required to have knowledge of the finite element methodology, to conceptually understand what you are applying in the program.

Overall: During my mechanical engineering studies, the subjects I most enjoyed were "computer-aided design" and "Finite Element Method". For this reason my thesis was oriented in the line of mechanical design, "design of a pin-on-disk friction machine", you can apply load states on pieces of interest, determine their stresses, deformations, safety factor, fatigue, buckling between others. In the same way, repeat the process until achieving the convergence of results, redefining the meshes on a particular element. It is simply incredible.

Pros: ANSYS really changed the way we model our equipment, vibratory machinery. Until now we were relying primarily on our experience and expertise. With modal analysis, we were able to identify problems that weren't obvious before. This in return helped us to optimise our constructions and be more competitive on the market.

Cons: The software is great but it is also as good as the engineer who is interpreting the results. Some areas of the software still need to be improved like the mesh generator.

Overall: For our company its the construction optimisation and problem-solving where we have benefited most.

Pros: I like that there is varied functionality built into the same interface. I like being able to build a model in the workbench and then perform finite element analysis on it in the same software package rather than transferring the model to some other software. The FEA simulations are pretty straightforward to set up and get running.

Cons: It can be a little buggy. A coworker and I could run the exact same simulation on the exact same model and end up with different results. Not always sure what the issues are, but could potentially be improved with more user testing.

Overall: Overall good, it's the software I learned finite element analysis on and still my platform of choice for that type of work. It's not my preferred software for 3D modeling, but if I'm doing modeling in conjunction with analysis, then I do prefer ANSYS mechanical.

Pros: One of the most sophisticated Cad software I had used in time, almost everything from scrap to prototype to final product can be made on this software and made to go for at test run which helps in understandings defects or efficiency of the product.

It's easy to use once you study it

It is made for professionals but beginners too can find fun with it

Cons: I didn't like the way of using it as it was a bit difficult to use it for a beginner as the instructions for how to use a tool is difficult to understand

It doesn't work on low end computers

So many command given at once might crash the software

Overall: I do like the software more than solidworks but not better than creo, but it's a good software for the working you need to do with lots of functions in it.

Pros: ANSYS provides a wide array of tools to help model complex systems. Whether it be structural analysis for loaded parts (ANSYS mechanical , or computational fluid dynamics simulations (ANSYS Fluent), ANSYS gives users confidence that they can verify their designs quite accurately. ANSYS also provides many examples and documentation online to help learn the basics of the software, as well as more advanced modeling techniques.

Cons: As is expected with such a robust software, the learning curve for any new user is quite steep. Navigating the multitude of menu layers is not intuitive at first. The built in CAD modeling package in ANSYS is also not nearly as useful as more dedicated CAD softwares, such as Solidworks or Creo. It would be nice to not always have to import a model into ANSYS when the design gets a bit too complex.

Pros: ANSYS is very powerful. It can do pretty much any type of finite element analysis you need to do.

Cons: You have to have a very firm grasp of what you are trying to do. There is virtually no guidance inside the software. If you don't know what you are doing you WILL get bogus results.

Pros: If you can simplify models into easy shapes, the FEA software can simulate very effectively. Ansys can even extend into Heat Transfer FEA which has been specifically useful to me.

Cons: The CAD side of Ansys feels clunky and confusing. If you can learn where the tools are, then it's not too bad, but the learning curve (as with any CAD) can be pretty steep.

Pros: This is very good software for engineering simulations. Lots of critical simulations can be done using this and can get the idea about the model and the parameters of model before implement the design.

Cons: If there is more variables, simulation takes more time such as more than 2 hours with computers with lower size RAM.

Overall: Simulation results are very accurate and helpful. Littlebit difficult to learn but after learning the software it is easy.

Pros: The possibility to simulate the heat and mass exchange processes in spaces when it easier, than conducting real experiments.

Cons: It is quite difficult to understand Ansys. Moreover, there are not enough literature, tutorials and videos with explanations and examples of problem solving. Tutorials are not clear for beginners.

Overall: I use Ansys for simulating heat and mass exchange processes in spaces in order to analyse the efficiency of heating systems.

Pros: Has a great Graphic User Interface, and awesome graphics when plotting modeling results.

Cons: It is not self-intuitive at all. Not so easy to use. You would need to take a course to be able to use it. It is very specific depending on what type of project you are working on.

Overall: It is great! Once you learn how to use it, practicing will make you an expert.

Yo can do great things and model very complex situations using Ansys.
