Anaglyph adds that Laminate Tools is a stand-alone Windows application that 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. The program is used by composite structures designers and stress analysts in automotive, aerospace, marine, energy and leisure.

Version 4.4 further enhances the FEA and CAD interfaces and offers exciting new functionality in the Geometry, Design, Check and Manufacture modules.

The Abaqus interfaces are extended, additional capabilities are introduced for exporting patterns and FE analysis formats, post-processing is simpler for investigating failure mechanisms.
