MSC Software Corporation, a global leader in helping product manufacturers to advance their engineering methods with simulation software and services, today announced the expansion of its OEM License & Distribution Agreement to include Distene’s Hex and Hybrid meshing components. These technologies will join the other MeshGems Surface and Volume meshing components that have been incorporated inside MSC’s products.

One of the first products to leverage the new meshing components will be MSC’s Actran, the acoustic simulation software product, to address a need for a robust hexahedral dominant automatic finite element mesh generator.

“Distene’s state-of-the art hexa/hybrid volume mesher components will give our customers the ability to mesh large, complicated models with ease, providing both a better user experience as well as an improvement in Actran computational performance. And, we are very pleased with Distene’s strong support of MSC’s R&D team, both in the integration process as well as customer assistance.” said John Janevic, Vice President – Strategic Operations of MSC Software.

“We are delighted that MSC has chosen to extend again the existing partnership to a next level by incorporating our Hex/Hybrid technologies,” said Laurent Anne, Sales & Marketing Director of Distene S.A.S. “We value MSC’s partnership and related involvement in providing high-end solutions (software and services) for fast, reliable, innovative industrial quality mesh generation, to give full satisfaction to MSC customers, now and in the future.”

Following the use of Distene’s Hex and Hybrid meshing components in Actran, MSC anticipates using the technology in additional products throughout its portfolio.
