Features

Bolted Connections
Use the Bolted Connection dialogue box and its 3D visualisation tool to build and size bolted joints for multiple laminates. Understand failure mode and safety margins for the bolted connection. This helps you size laminates and determine bolt configurations, and helps to eliminate uncertainty during conceptual design.

Fabric Builder
Create and analyse various composite fabrics with the Fabric Builder. Choose from different fabric types, weave orientations and customisable constituent materials. The tool determines fabric thickness, and uses micro-mechanics and selected failure criteria to calculate the resulting fabric strengths. Once you create a fabric, save it in the material database. Fabric types include:

  • Random continuous mat
  • Woven fabric
  • Stitched fabric

Spring-In Calculator for Laminates
Calculate the spring-in or change in geometry to your laminate due to temperature and moisture changes. Predict laminate bending or warpage due to curing.

Material Export to FEA
After building a laminate, you can export it to your FEA package for further use. Select from Abaqus, ANSYS, NASTRAN, or Simulation Mechanical material file formats.

Customisable Material Library
Use an extensive, customisable database of laminates, fibres, resins and core materials to build your sandwich panel. Add or create new materials with the New Item feature. Employ micro-mechanics to determine the properties of your ply, or Classical Laminate Theory, to calculate the properties of your laminate.

Laminate Analysis Tool Set
The Laminate module includes 9 composite laminate analysis features to help you to determine properties and performance. You can calculate and export laminate properties to finite element codes. Use a variety of top failure theories to plot your design spaces, and perform failure analysis using First Ply Failure or Progressive Failure.

Simple Structure Simulation
Conduct structural analysis without FEA to quickly find more accurate solutions for de-formation, bending, vibration and compressive stability of laminate plates, sandwich panels, tubes, beams and pressure vessels. Once you define a laminate, simply specify the structure geometry, select from a menu of loading and boundary conditions, and apply your load to determine the laminate response.

Composite Design Utilities
From building a composite fabric to optimising your laminate, the Utilities module provides helpful tools for composite engineering.

Composite Engineering Reporting
Create accurate, professional reports of your design and analysis results. Export results to PDF, Microsoft Word, or HTML file formats.

Combining training and learning, together with your software is essential. The individual or team that drives the design process must have the highest level of knowledge and product training so the business can leverage its full potential.

Smart. Flexible. Powerful. Autodesk Subscriptions.

Discover what Maintenance Subscription, Subscription, and Cloud Service Subscription can do for your budget, your people and your projects.

Subscription

Autodesk Subscription gives you access to Autodesk software—the same full version you get with a perpetual license—but with a flexible, pay-as-you-go approach for a software budget that’s easier to manage.

  • Pay-as-you-go access
  • Scalable licensing
  • Up-to-date software
  • Additional cloud and software services

Difference between Single-User and Multi-User

Single-user:
Contract administrators grant access to subscription for single-user products and associated services by assigning a named user to a product. Each named user is an individual with a unique Autodesk ID. The number of named users you can assign per product is determined by the total number of licenses available for that product.

Multi-user:
Supports a specific maximum number of users on computers connected to a network. Licenses are issued via Network License Manager (NLM) software utility to each user who starts an Autodesk product, up to the number of licenses purchased. Usually returns to NLM when a user closes all Autodesk products, which makes the license available to other users. NLM can be configured to allow a user to borrow a license and disconnect from the network until a specified return date—a borrowed license is only returned to NLM on or before the return date

Cloud Service Subscription

Now you can access your tools via the Internet without tying up your desktop or maintaining software. Get access to select Autodesk cloud services for creating, editing, analysing, and sharing work through a software-as-a-service (SaaS) subscription model.

  • Convenient access
  • Simplified collaboration
  • Secure storage
  • Powerful computing
