Complex Models Simple Modeling



TGM (Terrain Geometry Maker)


Project sites that contain complex contour surfaces can take hours to model with basic CAD-based commands. Typically idealizations are made in the interest of time, which in turn leads to a decrease in accuracy of the final analysis. GTS NX features a high-end Terrain Geometry Maker (TGM) that automatically converts topographic maps into editable surfaces.GTS NX is also equipped with a Bedding Plane Wizard that enables you to model uneven soil strata with ease. You can directly utilize your soil profile by entering the boring log data for several coordinates. The program the will then automatically extrapolate the changes in soil levels between each point.





CAD Interface


GTS NX enables you to import your CAD drawings directly into the program. This feature completely eliminates the need to recreate existing drawings on the program and will thus save you considerable amounts of time and effort.

GTS NX also has CAD-based commands that are similar to the standard CAD modeling interfaces that are most typically used by engineers.





Functions for modeling complex 3D geometry and applications


GTS NX has various advanced modeling functions that will enable you to model even the most complex projects with unmatched levels of ease and precision. These functions enable you to easily and intuitively make modifications to your 3D model and are especially useful for modeling detailed soil layers and surfaces.Geometry that would have required a significant amount of time to model in other programs will only take you a few moments to model with this highly specialized feature.





Create intricate mesh sets with unprecedented ease


GTS NX also incorporates a hybrid mesh generation function that creates mesh set that use an optimal combination of hexahedron and tetrahedral elements.

The main advantage of using hexahedron elements is that they generate comparatively more accurate stress results than tetrahedral elements; and the advantage of using tetrahedral elements is that they are more effective for modeling sharper curves and corners of complex geometry.
