Over the past few months we’ve had well over 130 engineers from OEM, Tier 1 supplier and service consultancies take our online training course ‘Intro to FEA with MSC Apex‘. Online training is certainly the best way to learn a new technology given the current climate.
We’ve had excellent testimonials and reviews, both on the course content and teaching style through our learning management system.
See below for a selection of these comments.
Over the past few weeks, thanks to Steffan Evans from Evotech, and MSC Software, we have been able to get our heads around a new way of building detailed FE models with MSC Apex, through Evotech’s Introduction to FEA with MSC Apex.
It’s given me the opportunity to flex my FE muscles again. Steff’s course gave the fundamentals of geometry/mesh creation and setting up static and normal mode jobs in a clear, easy to understand manner that even I could follow. This gave me the building blocks I needed to step off and explore the rest of Apex. The video attached to this is the result of me going off piste from one of Steff’s tutorials and getting from geometry to a dynamic response, including modal contribution in far less time than it would have done previously (hours vs days). Impressive stuff!
Dr Matthew Acton, Structures Capability Lead, Team Tempest at BAE Systems
Enjoyed learning to use MSC Apex over the last few weeks using the EvotechCAE course run by Steffan Evans.
Apex is a very nice-looking and intuitive FEA program with loads of useful functions (including Sketchup-like geometry creation) and automatic features, and Steff’s videos and tutorials are fun and easy to follow but challenging enough to keep you engaged.
Now I just need to figure out how to make it work properly with my acoustics software…
Gwyn Richards, Aerodynamics Engineer at BAE Systems
Just completed the EVOTECH “Introduction to FEA with MSC Apex” course. I think this is an excellent introduction to model build, and to solution with the inbuilt solver, or externally in Nastran. I found it a challenge at times, but very rewarding. I can see Apex being a great leap forward in rapid testing of ideas, and further development of structural solutions for new installations. Excellent tuition from Dr Steffan Evans at evotechcae.com
Colin Binks, Principal Stress Engineer at Marshall Aerospace
Have been working through the excellent Introduction to FEA with MSC Apex online training course provided by Evotech CAE. Steffan Evans has designed a course that is very well structured and with well designed support material so you quickly get to the key point of each exercise.
It certainly gave me a good overview of the capabilities of this powerful piece of software and confidence that I could start using it ‘In anger’.
Andrew Molyneux, Senior Aerospace Structures Engineer
There is a lot of tech packed into Apex. It’s generative capabilities are incredible and at it’s heart is the inextricable link between mesh and geometry. Some of the capability I’ve explored:
- Mid-surface meshing tools with auto-thickness detection
- Built in solver for model verification & analysis
- Python based scripting for automation

Having some #FEAFurloughFun with the Evotech Computer-Aided Engineering Ltd Introduction to MSC Apex Course.
A very well put-together training package with excellent support from Steffan Evans.
Lyndsey Carson, Stress Engineer at Spirit AeroSystems
Happy to have completed the online MSC Apex course run by Dr Steffan Evans (Evotech Computer-Aided Engineering Ltd) and receive certification for it.
Looking forward to put the MSC Apex tool to good use now.
Asim Javed, Aerospace Structures Engineer at Spirit Aerosystems
Throughout the furlough period I decided to spend a few hours each week learning and practising with FEA Software, MSC Apex, with the help of Evotech Computer-Aided Engineering Ltd Introduction to MSC Apex Course.
The user friendly interface of Apex made for an easy and enjoyable training experience. I found that powerful capabilities like Direct Modelling resulted in drastically reduced Meshing times and I look forward to further development on Apex with full integration into my daily work on the horizon.
Thanks to MSC Software for providing us with the licenses and Steffan Evans for his continuous support with the training course, I would highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in MSC Apex.
