Vistagy’s FiberSIM Wins Top Marks BY DLR German Aerospace Centre

14 June 2011

Vistagy’s FiberSIM composites engineering software has won top marks in a study conducted by the DLR German Aerospace Centre.

The study examined the capabilities of various software products for simulating carbon fibre reinforced manufacturing processes so it could provide an understanding of how to use these tools to get the most accurate flat patterns and, thus, the highest quality and lightest weight parts. Vistagy explained that FiberSIM came above all other tested draping simulation software when fibre simulation, design functionality, and interfaces were collectively considered and in addition to having the highest combined score of any of the products in the three categories mentioned above, it was also judged to have the best simulation algorithm and design functionality, and was considered the most robust tool.
