Save time and automate your tetrahedral mesh generation with Altair SimLab™

SimLab is a process-oriented tetrahedral finite element meshing software, allowing the fast and efficient modelling of complex assemblies. SimLab automates many tasks to reduce human errors and the time spent by the engineer creating a finite element model. SimLab is not a traditional pre-processing tool but a business development platform for capturing and automating simulation processes.

In this training, SimLab will be discussed through presentations and exercises.


Engineers with in-depth knowledge of finite elements.

Training objectives

  • Import and check geometry
  • Check and create a mesh
  • Create contacts and links
  • Define loads and outputs
  • Automate an efficient meshing process
