Third Wave Systems’ AdvantEdge FEM version 5.4 is a materials-based software solution for the optimization of metalcutting. The software provides detailed information about heat flow, temperatures, stresses and forces for machining processes.
New and/or enhanced features include 3D chip refinement for added control over chip mesh; chip-only display in 3D for viewing chips independently of uncut workpieces during result analyses; user-defined workpiece initial mesh size for more control over initial 3D workpiece mesh; improved 3D engine performance; performance improvements for faster 3D initial mesh; user-defined 2D yield surfaces for extended control over user-defined material models; and workpiece truncation (3D milling processes) for reducing simulation run time and exerting more control over workpiece geometry.
