New Femap Monthly Subscription Options Available for the US Online Store

Two new Femap subscription options have been added to the popular Femap online store, further expanding the configurations on offer allowing you more choice to make a selection that best suits your business needs. The monthly or annually based subscription options now include the following two new choices:

  • Femap with NX Nastran plus Advanced Bundle

  • Femap with NX Nastran and Advanced Bundle plus Desktop Extension

The original three offerings are still available in addition:

  • Femap standalone

  • Femap with NX Nastran

  • Femap with NX Nastran and Dynamic Response

The advanced bundle affords increased functionality that comprises advanced capabilities including superelement analysis for model partitioning, DMAP for NX Nastran solution sequence customization, aeroelasticity for aerodynamic load generation and analysis, dynamic response and DMP (distributed memory parallel) allowing NX Nastran to solve faster using multiple processors.

Desktop extension removes checksum control allowing Femap and NX Nastran to operate independently of each other. This allows you to manually edit the NX Nastran input deck independently of Femap and submit the analysis to run, providing an open simulation workflow.


Monthly subscription is a great option if your use of Femap is cyclic in nature as it enables you to accommodate peak requirements with subscription licenses, ensuring your team has the tools and resources it needs, when it needs them. Furthermore, subscription licenses can be cancelled at any time so you don’t have to pay for surplus capability when software usage requirements reduce.

The Femap subscription option also offers an affordable way to gain immediate access to the software, and pay as you go, which helps ensure a healthy cash flow.

The subscription version is identical to the equivalent perpetual version, and files can be shared with other Femap users. Femap runs locally on your desktop, and support is included from a qualified engineer at your local reseller, backed up by Siemens technical support.
