Anaglyph is very pleased to announce the release of the latest version of its Laminate Tools.
The company explains Laminate Tools is a stand-alone Windows application, which it states addresses the entire Geometry import-Design-Analysis-Check-Manufacture process of composites structural design. It links the various disciplines, communicates original data between all involved in the process and saves valuable team time. Laminate tools interfaces with most CAD and FEA applications. It is used by composite structures designers and stress analysts in automotive, aerospace, marine, energy and leisure.
According to Anaglyph Version 4.4 further enhances the FEA and CAD interfaces and offers exciting new functionality in the Geometry, Design, Check and Manufacture modules.
