SymLab CAE Tool For CFD And Aerodynamics Application - Free Download

SymLab and its add-ons combine to form an easy-to-use Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) software system that can help you assess the performance of your 3D model.

Using SymLab add-ons you can create any 2D or 3D geometry or import your geometry from another CAD package. Then simulate how a gas (e.g. air) or liquid (e.g. water) will flow over and through your geometry.

SymLab is simple to learn and efficient to use. You can study how the physics of your model changes over time or as you modify your model in real time. SymLab's unified simulation environment makes it easy to change your model on the fly and quickly see the results of your changes.

Examples of models you can analyze with SymLab:

  • Airflow over an aircraft wing
  • Water flow around a submarine
  • Airflow over a moving car

You can download the basic version of SymLab (without any add-ons) for free! This free download functions as a viewer for SymLab files and allows you to get a feel for SymLab's easy-to-use interface and capabilities. It is ideal for interactive viewing and sharing of sym and brep 3D models files.

You can download and view our sample sym files for free!

To realize SymLab's full geometry creation and simulation capabilities, i.e., to generate sym files for your own designs, you will need to expand the free download with one or more of the following add-ons:sym

  • Builder: create and modify your own 2D and 3D geometry designs
  • Panel Flow: simulate gas (e.g. air) or liquid (e.g. water) flow around and through your design to determine flow directions and forces
  • Transient: explore time-dependent simulations and visualization of results
  • Exchange: import and export IGES, STEP and faceted file formats
  • Viz Export: export your 3D results to high resolution, high quality render and other visualization packages
  • Professional: obtain all of the above functionality in a single discounted package

These add-ons are available on a subscription basis. Try before you buy with our no hassle free 30-day add-on trials.

Add-ons used to create sym files are not needed to view them. All add-ons require a SymLab installation.


Some of Highlighting Features of SymLab:

  • View and compare results from multiple simulations
  • Create multiple 3D views of the same simulation
  • Use multiple camera views to examine your results from different angles
  • Generate multiple 2D plots and compare imported data with your simulation results
  • Drag and drop windows to group and view them simultaneously
  • Simple to learn
  • Standard toolbar shortcuts
  • Full undo/redo capabilities
