MSC Apex Generative Design

MSC Apex Generative Design

An intelligent, highly automated and fast generative design solution ideal for additive manufacturing.

Introducing MSC Apex Generative Design

MSC Apex Generative Design is Hexagon’s revolutionary, end-to-end design software. Its brilliance lies in its high-quality and time-effective production, which involves less human intervention than other software of its kind.


No expert knowledge is required, and optimization is highly automated.

Choose from multiple design candidates which are cleverly generated based on convenient optimization settings.

Speedy algorithms reduce initial design and setup time by up to 80%. The algorithms ensure efficiency by combining multiple steps, from starting geometry through preparation to optimization.

Easily create quick manufacturing-ready designs

MSC Apex Generative Design disrupts traditional product optimization by producing a highly automated workflow. It’s an easy-to-use software experience that’s both efficient and timesaving.

Stress-based optimization for robust part designs

MSC Apex Generative Design works with powerful, smart generative design algorithms. It creates an intelligent, automated retransition to CAD functionality.

This high-powered software uses multiple processes to reduce wasted time in design. Other features of MSC Apex Generative Design include:



Impressive resolution with automatic adjustment throughout the entire optimization process.


Automated mesh generation

Automatic, error-free mesh generation in seconds, which reduces failures and time consumption.


CAD format

Automated re-transitioning to CAD format based on high-quality NURBS for optimal CAM workflow and easy validation.


Material Simulation

Isotropic and non-isotropic material simulation that takes directional dependencies into account.

Complementary Applications

Workflow Integration

Experience a seamless, collaborative Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) workflow by connecting the software to the integrated Nexus platform solution.


Allow stakeholders of a project to perform live, interactive project reviews through the 3D Whiteboard, a visual collaboration tool.

Result Verification

Ensure the structural integrity of your optimisation result. Validate it with MSC Apex Structures based on renowned MSC Nastran analysis.

Process Simulation

Get to first-time-right production with process simulation by Simufact Additive or Digimat AM.
