FLOW-3D CAST Workshops

FLOW-3D CAST Metal Casting Workshops
FLOW-3D CAST is a state-of-the-art metal casting simulation modeling platform that combines extraordinarily accurate modeling with versatility, ease of use, and high performance CLOUD computing capabilities. Our FLOW-3D CAST workshops use hands-on exercises to show you how to set up and run successful simulations for detailed analysis of your casting design. Workshop materials provide an introduction to the FLOW-3D CAST modeling platform and detail all the steps of a successful casting model setup, from geometry import through post-processing.
We currently offer workshops for Sand Casting and HPDC process modeling. If you are interested in a workshop for another casting application, choose the ‘custom workshop’ option on our registration form or contact our workshop instructor.

Unless otherwise noted, all workshops run from 1:00pm – 3:00pm ET (10:00am – 12:00am PT).

Registration: Workshop registration is currently only available to prospective or lapsed users in the United States and Canada. Prospective users outside of these countries should contact their distributor to inquire about workshops. Existing users should contact sales@flow3d.com to discuss their licensing options.

Cancellation: Flow Science reserves the right to cancel a workshop at any time, due to reasons such as insufficient registrations or instructor unavailability. In such cases, a full refund will be given, or attendees may opt to transfer their registration to another workshop. Flow Science is not responsible for any costs incurred.

Registrants who are unable to attend a workshop may cancel up to one week in advance to receive a full refund. Attendees must cancel their registration by 5:00 pm MST one week prior to the date of the workshop; after that date, no refunds will be given. If available, an attendee can also request to have their registration transferred to another workshop.

Licensing: Workshop licenses are for evaluation purposes only, and not to be used for any commercial purpose other than evaluation of the capabilities of the software.
