No meshing and surprised with how quick it can compute large models

Pros: Biggest advantage is the setup and computing time. User interface is intuitive and very easy to use. No meshing needed which feels weird at first but after a few projects seems to make a lot more sense. The whole experience feels a lot more streamline and organic from start to finish when compared to other FEA programs. Integrates directly with CAD software like Fusion 360 and OnShape.

Cons: Some of the functionality/power of the information you receive back is a little limited compared to other powerhouse FEA programs like Ansys.

Overall: Easy to use. Quick to learn interface and simulation set-up. Results are computed quickly.

This software takes the pain out of structural analysis. This meshless analysis is quick & accurate

Pros: Easy start up and intuitive menus. I switched from Siemens NX Nastran without any issue adopting it. Working with .stl files instead of a mesh is very easy. At first I wasn't sure of the accuracy, but I benchmarked it against hand calculations and Siemens NX Nastran and I was impressed. Solve time on both components and full assemblies is quick. The software is also very intuitive with assemblies, stitching where required or adding bolt connections. If there were any issues, the owner would email you directly with quick solutions. Looking forward to it's app in Onshape, as long as the cost is not too high.

Cons: License is a pain. It should be floating because we don't always use it on the same machine. More literature should be available about how the stl is an accurate mesh. People don't believe my results until empirical testing proves the software is accurate.

Overall: FEA analysis software at a great price. Runs quickly, accurately, all from an stl export. Navigation through the software is almost self explanatory, but tutorials are available if anything is unclear. Components or assemblies are easily constrained and loaded, and graphical results can be quickly added to your Powerpoint presentation.
