A new powerful and intuitive graphical interface

Our GUI team has developed a new multilingual and business-oriented graphical interface, bringing you a simplified and personalized user experience.

  • Manipulation on multiple objects (rotation, trimming, motion, etc.).
    Benefits: Simpler analysis.
     
  • Improvement of centered rotation for tilt casting.
    Benefits: Simulation closer from reality, easier and more accurate process analysis .
     
  • Integration of 'Custom Actions' applicable in a single clic.
    Benefts: Customizing of the results display for a more accurate analysis.
     
  • Preview of the cycling thanks to the visualization of the active regulation zones within the kinematics preview.
    Benefits: Optimization of the shake-out time for the paramaters of the casting machine. 
     
  • Integration of the Python console for post-process of scalar results.
    Benefits: Access to a simple user language in analysis mode.

    Benefits: Automatic definition of computation areas.
     
  • New specific remeshing tool to merge the meshes of several objects.
    Benefits: Make it possible to join components with the same characteristics into a single object.
     
  • Consideration of temperature-dependent exothermic reaction for powder.
    Benefits: Simulation closer to reality with taking into account of temperature.
     
  • Temperature driven cycling.
    Benefits: Simulation closer to reality with taking into account of temperature.

 

Access to high value-added tools

  • Significant improvement of the automatic remeshing during computation (FORCE).
    Benefits: Better precision of the automatic remeshing, strong reduction of computation times, reduction of data setup times.
