This course is designed to provide the knowledge about the optimization workflow in Ansys Workbench. The complete end-to-end procedure is shown from the original CAD to the final calculation on the optimized shape.

The course includes information about the optimization methods and the general theory. It shows the basic as well as the advanced definitions of optimization for static applications. The optimization in dynamics is also covered in this course.

A part of this course focuses on the geometry tools used in SpaceClaim to prepare and repair the STL files.

The materials include an application example that can be treated as a workshop/discussion time to review the general workflow for optimization.

Who Should Attend?

Engineers and Designers looking for optimized designs.


A technical education and a background in the fundamentals of finite element analysis are recommended.


This online course is split into 2 sessions over 2 consecutive days at approximately 2.5 hours each.

Sessions commence at 9:30am.
