CAD Import

CAD import and clean up

 

WINISO® imports CAD data as DWG, DXF and STEP. Efficient tools for CAD preparation create a seamless transition from CAD to FEM during data transfer.

Polygons

 

During the generation and processing of the polygons, the essential features and contours of the design are obtained and the foundation is laid for efficient and fast FEM calculation.

Polygon Search Flood Fill

 

The Flood Fill polygon recognition gives the user an intuitive, powerful and robust tool for preparing even problematic CAD data.

Clean joints

 

The joint clean-up automatically corrects offset errors from the CAD data and removes incidental details. The result is a coherent design that focuses on the essentials for the FEM calculation.

Project processing

Surface machining

 

Surfaces reflect the geometry in the WINISO® FEM model. The structure of the simulation project is completely defined in just a few steps.

Material assignment

 

Automatic assignment of materials to layers and automatic detection of profile cavities and boundary condition surfaces for a speedy and error-resistant model definition

Boundary condition

 

With the automatic detection of cavities and the flexible definition of boundary conditions and surface properties, almost any problem can be modelled quickly and precisely.

Cavities

 

The definitions of frame cavities and spaces between panes from a wide range of standardisation are implemented in WINISO®: DIN EN ISO 10077-2, EN 673, DIN EN ISO 6946, ISO 15099.

Frame according to EN ISO 10077-2

 

WINISO® implements both calculation methods for window profiles with cavities provided for in DIN EN ISO 10077-2 in accordance with the standard: the equivalent conductivity method and the radiosity method introduced in 2017. Automatic checks ensure a consistent and standard-compliant calculation approach in all details.

ISO 15099

 

WINISO® enables the calculation of window profiles and glazing according to the specifications of ANSI/NFRC-100 and ISO 15099 according to the requirements of the US standardisation for the international market

U-Wert-Icon

U-value

Is a measure of the thermal quality of a building component. The higher a U-value is, the more heat passes through a component. In WINISO® you have the option to determine the linear U-value based on the selected point as well as to calculate the U-value (total).
