Anaglyph Ltd. (London, U.K.) has released version 3.3 of its Laminate Tools software application, which complements existing CAD systems and/or FEA environments, with native support for Nastran and ANSYS. This version adds features that reportedly enhance design, postprocessing and manufacture. Layup design enhancements include layer highlight options, a “changes” log and third-party application compatibility. Postprocessing enhancements offer new failure criteria calculations. Manufacturing is improved via the new PlyMatch interface, which links the software to the company’s Plymatch System, a video-based ply placement aid designed to help technicians manually position plies in hand layup applications.
