Femap delivers affordable, high performance finite element analysis modellingAs an engineer you will demand software that is not only cost effective and easy to use, but with the power to model the toughest problem. Femap, from Siemens PLM Software, delivers just that – affordable, high performance finite element analysis (FEA) modelling for the engineering desktop. Femap is recognized as the world’s leading CAD-independent Windows-native pre- and post- processor for advanced engineering FEA.

Femap works with a wide variety of finite element analysis solvers, including industry-leading NX™ Nastran® software.

At Majenta PLM, we don’t just sell the product and leave it at that. We actively provide expert help through our team of dedicated individuals; this ensures that you have a greater return on your investment.

Version 11

With the latest release of Femap you will find further extensions to the postprocessing capabilities, including analysis studies and free body section cuts that speed up results comprehension.

New geometry modification tools allow for faster interactive geometry editing, and extended preprocessing functionality includes a contact manager data surface that assists in contact model setup and visualisation.

Meshing enhancements include improved control of through-thickness elements for solid meshes and mesh splitting for increased meshing versatility.

There are significant graphics performance improvements, and many more miscellaneous and solver-specific enhancements.

  • Faster results comprehension.
  • More intuitive geometry editing.
  • Easier contact model setup and visualisation.
  • More versatile meshing functions.
  • Faster graphics display with improved graphics performance.

Femap is CAD-independent and can access geometry data from all major CAD systems including CATIA, Pro/Engineer, NX, Solid Edge, SolidWorks and AutoCAD.

Finite Element Modelling

The full finite element model with underlying data is fully exposed by Femap, allowing you to view, create or modify entities directly.

Finite Element Meshing

Femap’s 3D solid and surface meshers are tuned to generate high-quality meshes, providing well-shaped elements to ensure accurate results.

Assembly Modelling

Femap with NX Nastran supports assembly modelling, including automatic contact detection that determines the components initially in contact.

Beam Modelling

As well as solid and shell element models, Femap also supports beam modelling and meshing.

Composite Modelling

The use of composite materials in designs has increased significantly in recent years, and Femap can help you model and post process results on composite structures.

Solver Neutral

Femap is solver-neutral and provides in-depth pre- and post-processing support for all of the main commercial solvers on the market, including NX Nastran, Ansys, LS-DYNA, Abaqus and TMG.

Post processing

A wealth of visualisation capabilities help you view and interpret the results to quickly understand the model behaviour.

Scalable Simulation Solutions

The Femap with NX Nastran product line offers solution scalability, from the more general simulation capabilities available in the base module to more advanced applications including dynamics, optimisation, advanced non-linear, rotor dynamics, heat transfer and fluid flow in add-on modules.


Femap’s open customisation capability allows complete access to all Femap functions through an OLE/COM object-oriented Application Programming Interface (API), which employs standard, non-proprietary programming languages.


Femap is an intuitive Windows®-native application.
