C3P Software, a pioneer supplier of CAX & PLM solution for industrial manufacturing processes, announced today to launch the newest version of the design, simulation, and optimization solution- Cast-Designer V7.6.
CAST-DESIGNER 7.6 is a major release version. More than ten new functions have been incorporated into the new version. The major enhancements and the new developments include:
QuickCast for all casting process
With innovative technology, the ‘QuickCast’ can simulate the metal flow by the inner gate in a few seconds and can use for casting zone evaluation during the gating system design. Now, this technology has been enhanced and applied for HPDC, LPDC, gravity casting, Thixo-casting, lost foam casting, and Disa casting.
More ever, GA base automatic optimization also has been integrated into the QuickCast environment and helps find the best design in a few clicks.
New design approach for gating system
Everybody can make a gating system design now! The ‘Auto Runner’ and ‘Auto Merge’ technology makes the design work so easy!
In Cast-Designer V7.6, the ‘Auto Runner’ can make the runner connection smooth and flexible. It provides a quick guideline to use to continue the following design work. The ‘Auto merge’ can cut the sub-runner and control the runner section area automatically.
Design the gating system in Cast-Designer is not only faster but also high quality.
Advance CFD Solver
The simulation speed and accuracy of the advanced CFD solver are improving. The calculation method for the final filling region has been revised, and the CPU time is faster than before. Also, the simulation of the centrifugal process has been enhanced. It could be applied to both horizontal and vertical casting processes.
C3P microstructure model
A new microstructure model has been designed for the heat treatment, welding process, casting process, and other thermal-mechanical processes. It could be employed to a wide range of alloys, such as iron, steel, aluminum, etc. The advantage of this method is not required the CCT and TTT curve for each material, and suitable for a wide cooling rate range.
With the C3P microstructure model, the thermal stress, mechanical contact stress, and phase stress are possible to simulate in Cast-Designer.
New CDPE interface for casting performance simulation
More people pay attention to the casting performance affected by the manufacturing process. It is an important stage for the real simulation of the virtual prototype. The CDPE module in Cast-Designer is the easy way to perform this. Now, the CDPE interface has been re-organized and the operation is simpler than before. A material database for CDPE application is also acute in the software package.
