Where is Stamping, Where is Form-Advisor
The first increment base design and CAE solution for sheet metal forming fully integrated to MCAD system, provides most accurate and feasible result for automotive and progressive stamping
【NEWYORK – Nov. 30th, 2012】 – C3P Software, a pioneer supplier of CAX solution for industrial manufacturing processes, announces today to release the new generation sheet metal forming process design and simulation solution – Form-Advisor V3.1, an unique sheet metal forming solution for automotive and progressive stamping base on incremental technology, now directly integrates to MCAD environment.
Form-Advisor is the new generation metal forming CAE system built from day one specifically for integration within the design process. This integration not only improves the consistency of design data in CAD system and simulation system, but also greatly improves the speed and efficiency of design and engineering cycles.
This innovative software puts metal flow, thinning and wrinkle, stress and strain, springback analysis into the hands of the same people who are responsible for developing the stamping product, mould and making engineering decisions.
- Simulation driven by CAD data
With Form-Advisor, your CAD geometry drives the simulation process. When you make a design change in the CAD system, you see the change instantly in Form-Advisor in a few clicks. It’s hassle free.
- Unique for design
Build in process design capability to provide quick solution decision.
- Unique for validation
The 1st increment base CAE solution fully integrated in MCAD environment, simulates all stamping phenomenon in a few clicks.
- Unique for engineer
The easiest, fastest, powerful solution brings CAE validation to daily design process. Base on the familiar CAD environment for all design activates and CAE simulation, eliminates the gap of CAD and CAE, reduce the learning curve to minimum, no CAE background required.
Main Features of Form-Advisor
- Extremely simple user interface fully integrated into MCAD environment, fully associative and regenerative to drastically reduce downstream design changes.
- Built in SPW (Stamping Process Works) technology. The user can make starting from a metal forming part and make process design and die face generation in Form-Advisor to serve on early design stage. It is ten times faster than traditional CAD method.
- Build in new generation full automatic meshing technology. NO MESH CONCEPT TO USER. Thanks the special innovation technology, Form-Advisor is suitable for any type CAD data with powerful CAD defects repairing capability, the user totally need not care the meshing process and data, no FEM background required.
- Progressive stamping and multiple-stage forming can be defined simply for all formability applications of various die systems in the MCAD environment.
- Base on incremental technology than one step simulation. The build in solver kernel build in Impact and Aster technology, it was proven by industry widely in the past 20 years. Also build in the advance technology of Stamp-Engineer.
- Couple explicit incremental solver and implicit solver together, perform the whole range simulation of metal forming, includes gravity, holding, stamping/forming and springback simulation.
- Accurate physics modelling, efficient calculation of the formability based on the die design. Simulation result includes safety zones, forming zones, FLD analysis, splitting, thinning, wrinkling, thickening, material flow and draw-in, stress, strain, optimal blank shape, light strip and skid mark, flatness and springback etc.
- Special design for automotive stamping and progressive stamping process, support thin blank and thick blank forming, suitable the complex 3C parts.
- Using template design technology, process setup is very simple and logic, objective concept, the user only takes care of the stamping process and pays attention to the process improvement.
