And the Composite World Rejoiced: FiberSIM and ANSYS ACP Hook-Up

An early Christmas for those of us who use ANSYS with composites.  ANSYS and VISTAGY just announced that they will offer bi-directional linkage between FiberSIM and ANSYS through ANSYS Composite PrepPost.  The key statement from the press release:

ANSYS, Inc. … , and VISTAGY, Inc., … , have taken a major step in closing the loop between composites design and analysis by integrating ANSYS®13.0 Composite PrepPost and FiberSIM® 2010 composites engineering software. This bi-directional integration, enabled by FiberSIM’s Analysis Interface, allows customers to exchange detailed lay-up information between design and analysis quickly and accurately. As a result, users can optimize parts, assemblies and structures more efficiently.

Looks like there will be a Webinar on February 3: http://events.vistagy.com/vistagy-ansys-webcast.

If you are interested, contact your ANSYS Sales professional.   No word on when it will be released, but our guess is after the February webcast.
