Anaglyph has released version 4.5 of its Laminate Tools application.

Laminate Tools is a stand-alone Windows application that covers the entire geometry import-design-analysis-check-manufacture process of composites structural design. It can link to the various disciplines and communicate original data between those involved in the process.

The new version has improved FEA and CAD interfaces and adds new features in the design, check and manufacture modules. It has a new Phasebook export feature and the Abaqus interfaces have also been improved, while post-processing has been made simpler and faster.

Laminate Tools interfaces with most CAD and FEA applications and is used by composite structures designers and stress analysts in automotive, aerospace, marine, energy and leisure.
