Simulation is more than Software

Regularly informed

The CADFEM Journal offers current information and reports about simulation in product development to all customers and those interested in simulation.

Customer magazine CADFEM Journal

The CADFEM Journal is our customer magazine and is published twice a year. In the CADFEM Journal you will find current information from the world of simulation, news from CADFEM and ANSYS as well as user reports from simulation practice, training opportunities and much more. Have a look!

Latest edition as e-book: CADFEM Journal 2/2019 "Rethinking the Conventional".

Rethinking the Conventional - 75% less weight through live simulation and 3D printing is the focus of the current CADFEM Journal. You can experience live the hydraulic control unit of our title story at the formnext from November 19-22. The current issue further contains practical reports, e.g. on simulation in ship building, simulation for environmental protection, additive fibre composite production and a lot more news from the world of simulation.
