Step 2: Select Layup & Boundary Area
Imported geometry is auto exploded into surfaces for easing selection of layup and boundary areas.
Step 3: Define Layup Orientation
Choose your material characteristics from the library and simply enter fiber orientations, define gaps, and staggering strategies.
Step 4: Plan Automatically & Visualize
Click plan to automatically generates paths and provide layer-by-layer or pass-by-pass controls.
Step 5: Simulate the Motion & Detect Collision
Simulate the entire layup in the cell and change on the fly mold positioning, orientations, detect collisions, and near misses
