News Flow Science has released a new version of FLOW-3D Cast, its software for the metal casting industry. FLOW-3D Cast v4.2 offers an advanced What You See Is What You Need (WYSIWYN) interface, process-oriented workspaces and a new die spray cooling model.

FLOW-3D Cast v4.2’s WYSIWYN design methodology places the most important information at the top level so that users can quickly see and act on what options need to be set.

Following the design principle of WYSIWYN, FLOW-3D Cast v4.2 introduces the first process-oriented workspace for high pressure die casting. Users are guided through the distinct stages of a high pressure die casting process – thermal die cycling, filling, solidification, and cooling.

The new die spray cooling model, developed in collaboration with Audi AG, gives FLOW-3D Cast users the ability to model all facets of die preparation, taking into account the influence of the shape of the mold surface and the position and the movement of the spray nozzles. Being able to accurately model this important stage of high pressure die casting improves users’ ability to achieve high quality parts.

"Our prime objective with this release is to remove as much complexity from setting up simulations and lets the intelligence of the user interface prevent common errors and guide users with best practice settings. This allows our users to focus on improving their designs and processes," said John Ditter, VP of Software Engineering.

A live webinar will present the new models, features and design workflows of FLOW-3D Cast v4.2. The webinar will take place on Tuesday, July 19 at 1:00 pm EST. Online registration is now available.
