FLOW-3D Cast is designed specifically for modeling a wide range of casting processes and includes the relevant components required to provide a full design solution. It combines an intuitive user interface that uses a progressive approach to guide users to completion with the powerful FLOW-3D solver to deliver accurate predictions of filling and solidification-related defects. FLOW-3D Cast is available in three package levels so that companies with varying needs can select the product most suited to their process and their budget. Visualization and advanced data analysis is powered through FlowSight, a tailored implementation of the world-class Ensight® post-processor, making it possible to understand and clearly communicate results to collaborators and clients.
FLOW-3D Cast consists of a full flow and thermal solution for both the cast alloy and the die or mold. Simulations of filling and solidification using FLOW-3D Cast provides important insight into a casting process. This understanding helps identify problems with a design to increase yield and reduce the time required to perform physical design iterations. All this leads to production of quality parts in less time, resulting in greater customer satisfaction and profits. As a versatile simulation tool, FLOW-3D Cast can also enable companies to save time when deploying new casting processes or alloys.
