The ADINA Modeller (ADINA-M) is an add-on module to the ADINA User Interface program that provides solid modelling capabilities. With ADINA-M, solid geometry can be created directly in the ADINA User Interface program by creating ADINA-M solid primitives (e.g., blocks, cylinders, etc.) and using the ADINA-M tools to construct more complex solid geometry. IGES files can also be imported through ADINA-M, where IGES surfaces can be "sewn" to form solid bodies.
ADINA-M is based on the Parasolid kernel which is also used by other popular CAD systems such as NX, SolidWorks, SolidEdge, and Bentley Systems. Solid geometries from these and other Parasolid-based CAD systems can be directly imported through ADINA-M into the ADINA User Interface. The imported Parasolid parts can be modified inside the ADINA User Interface using the tools in ADINA-M.
The figures below show parts created in a CAD program, imported into the ADINA User Interface program with ADINA-M, and meshed using the automatic free meshing capability in the ADINA User Interface.
By licensing the ADINA-M module, many features, including the following features will be available in the ADINA User Interface (AUI):
The screen shot below shows the ADINA-M options mentioned in the table in the AUI environment.
