The CST Studio Suite® design environment is common across all the modules. Comprising a 3D interactive modeling tool and a schematic layout tool, the electromagnetic (EM) design environment combines a pre-processor for the solvers, post-processing tools tailored to industry needs, and an intuitive user interface for model construction and solver set-up.
The ribbon-based interface uses tabs to group all the tools and options needed to set up, carry out and analyze a simulation, according to their position in the workflow. Contextual tabs mean that the most relevant options for the task are always just a click away. The Ribbon, alongside with the Project Wizard and the QuickStart Guide, provides guidance to new users and offers access to a wide range of features.
The 3D interactive modeling tool at the heart of the interface uses the ACIS 3D CAD kernel. This powerful tool allows models to be constructed within CST Studio Suite and edited parametrically with a simple WYSIWYG approach.
