Manufacturing Simulation

Fast and Easy

solidThinking's manufacturing simulation environments are focused on creating high quality components with increased profitability through a highly intuitive user experience catering to beginners and experts alike. Guided process templates offer innovative experiences that enable users to increase product quality and design better products with minimal training.

Accurate

Visualize, predict and fix visible and invisible manufacturing defects upfront before any fabrication takes place. Save on expensive prototypes by simulating with accurate physics and process simulation.

Affordable

With initial and ongoing investments for thousands of dollars less than competitive products and through highly intuitive user interfaces, users can benefit and save costs due to a quick ramp-up in detecting defects early. This results in both time and cost savings.

Casting Simulation
Click2Cast is a fast, easy, accurate and affordable casting simulation environment focused on creating high quality components with increased profitability through a highly intuitive user experience catering to beginners and experts alike. Users are able to avoid typical casting defects such as air entrapment, shrinkage porosity, cold shuts, mold degradation and more by using Click2Cast.
 
Metal Extrusion Simulation
Click2Extrude Metal is a simulation environment designed to help metal extrusion companies meet the ever increasing demands to produce complex profiles with tight tolerances, quality surface finishes and high strength properties at reduced cost. Click2Extrude is a virtual press where users can visualize material flow and temperature inside a die during extrusion and make necessary changes to ensure balanced flow, while identifying and eliminating product defects
 
Polymer Extrusion Simulation
Click2Extrude Polymer is a simulation environment designed to help polymer extrusion companies meet the ever increasing demands to produce complex profiles with tight tolerances, quality surface finishes and high strength properties at reduced cost. Click2Extrude is a virtual press where users can visualize material flow and temperature inside a die during extrusion, and make necessary changes to ensure balanced flow, while identifying and eliminating product defects.
 
Metal Forming Simulation
Click2Form is a sheet metal forming simulation software that enables users to optimize their products for manufacturing, with the consideration of early formability, material utilization and cost. Evaluating feasibility within seconds is possible with the industry leading one-step inverse simulation technology. In addition to providing the users with areas of possible failure due to tearing and thinning, Click2Form has comprehensive blank utilization capabilities that provides optimal blank shape including the best layout for blank nesting and the associated material cost.
