SoftInWay also launched a user forum where engineering students can collaborate, discuss and provide mutual support.
"Since the company was founded in 1999, we have focused on supporting OEMs and Service Providers by offering our decades of Turbomachinery Design and Optimization experience, and later, the AxSTREAM software. Since 2005, when it was first released, we have developed a significant following from major market leaders in design and manufacturing but they still have one pain point – it’s hard to find young, educated and deeply skilled engineers. So, to support the educational community, our colleagues and our friends, we released this free software, to really give every engineer the tools to learn, and grow. We need to work together and push each other to create better, smarter and cleaner technologies. We hope that AxSTREAM Lite can put this power in the hands of our users and give them the push they need to break through the current efficiency frontiers." said Dr. Leonid Moroz, Founder & CEO of SoftInWay Inc.
The company is also planning to support Turbomachinery design contests and other student driven initiatives, which they hope, will encourage further learning and developing of the communities’ skill sets.
