What CADFEM customers are saying

Jérôme Pauc
Optical design and simulation engineer, Eyelights

Having support that responds so quickly and with such a high level of technical expertise in Ansys Zemax OpticStudio is extremely helpful! It makes it easier to discuss the subtleties of the problems encountered and unblock situations with the CADFEM contact person.

Gabriel Graumann
Inspecting structural engineer, LGA Landesgewerbeanstalt Bayern

I want to take advantage of this opportunity to thank you once again explicitly for your support. I really appreciate your commitment – this was/is definitely not an easy topic, and you worked much harder than you had to in this case.

Michael Göttlinger
Group Manager, Computational Engineering, Hilti Entwicklungsgesellschaft GmbH

I couldn’t be happier with the support I got from CADFEM! In all technical, content-related and project-related questions, I received both short-term and solution-oriented help. Many thanks for that!

What about non-disclosure agreements?

The license agreement with Ansys automatically includes a non-disclosure agreement. This is automatically extended to corresponding channel partners who are responsible for on-site customer support (support, license support, etc.). Consequently, no additional non-disclosure agreements between CADFEM and the client are needed for support, as they are already included in the license agreement. The agreements in the licensing agreement can be found at the following link:

Where can I find tutorials?

A range (approx. 50) of short tutorials is available on the CADFEM YouTube channel >>

How does data transfer work?

Files of up to 10 MB can be received by standard email. CADFEM has a transfer portal for larger file sizes. Links for uploading and downloading files will be sent by the corresponding support staff. CADFEM does not offer data exchange via Dropbox or other similar services.

We are not a client of CADFEM. Can we still get support?
