Fiber

FiberMoldex3D Fiber precisely simulates 3D fiber orientation and calculates process-induced anisotropic thermo-mechanical properties for fiber-reinforced plastic parts. With its accurate warpage prediction, users can achieve cost reduction and strength improvement.

Moldex3D Fiber provides accurate and detailed simulations of 3D fiber orientation, which helps users control anisotropic shrinkage for fiber-reinforced parts. Mechanical properties due to fiber orientation can also be visualized and analyzed for warpage prediction.
