(Autodesk)

Autodesk provides a comprehensive tool set creating an end-to-end solution for composite manufacturers. Highly functional capabilities provide solutions to novice and expert companies alike. Design composites layups with material catalogs, orientations, plies, and layup sequences. Add manufacturing edges, swap surfaces, and splice geometry based on material packaging. Simulate composite shear, fatigue, impact, warpage, and PFA. Analyze the manufacturability of processes like HLU, AFP/ATL, RTM, and forming. Autodesk’s simulation provides early access to problems in design and manufacturing. Manufacture composite parts by creating 2D flat patterns, program laser projectors, nest, track materials, and program, edit, and simulate machine part programs.
