Femap 12: preview of new custom tools

By AlRobertson

With the Femap version 12 release fast approaching, there are a lot of new capabilities coming that we’ve been reviewing over the last few weeks. As well as new functionality built in to the program and user interface, there are other new capabilities that have been added through the application program interface (API) programs, which you should also be aware of. These are new programs written and accessible through the Custom Tools menus, and are designed to make your job as an analyst and user of Femap a little easier.

These programs cover a range of different areas including accessing prewritten view themes, postprocessing tools and interaction with Excel and PowerPoint.


Watch the video below to find out more about these custom tools in Femap version 12, and what they can do.
