Freeware simulation tool

Sigma Engineering GmbH has developed a new freeware tool which allows simulation results to be manipulated outside of workstations.

According to the company, SIGMAinteract enables the entire cycle to be rewound and fast-forwarded from various viewpoints, with thermal issues, flow defects, fiber orientations tracked more easily. The outcome of an experimental plan can be evaluated to improve material selection or cycle time, Sigma said.

"The more efficiently a complex situation can be visualized, the faster problems can be solved with internal and external partners, and projects become economically successful,” said Timo Gebauer, CTO of SIGMA.
