The new version of COMPOSITE STAR, the database and design software for composite materials, is now available. MATERIAL (Brussels, Belgium) offers the software as a free download for 30 days at www.compositestar.com.
The new version, COMPOSITE STAR 2.0, has a completely improved user interface, making the use of the software more user-friendly. Another important new feature is the integrated spreadsheet. With this spreadsheet, the user can add new or customized calculation procedures. This adds a completely new dimension to the program and widens the scope of calculation possibilities substantially.
Maybe the most important innovation of COMPOSITE STAR 2.0 is its shareware concept. The price for a permanent license is â‚¬495/$745 (USD).
