Dear All, there are two channels for you to follow our research. 

1. We started a newsletter called Thoughts on Composites Modeling on LinkedIn. Please subscribe to it to get informed about our research and ideas we want to share with the community.

2. We moved our discussion forum to github at wenbinyugroup · Discussions · GitHub as it has more features which can serve you better.

The cloud version of SwiftComp uses a GUI developed based on Gmsh and a structural solver modified from Calculix. The user manuals and source codes of modified Gmsh and Calculix can be found in the supporting documents. If you want a quick start, you can watch our Gmsh4SC Tutorial Video Series. If you feel the cloud version is not convenient for you, you can download the gmsh/calculix source codes and executables in the supporting document. Please be advised that what you download is the GUI (gmsh) and finite element solver (calculix) only, you have to fill the form at to request SwiftComp from AnalySwift LLC for performing the analysis.

If you feel the Gmsh interface is not convenient for you to use, feel free to download ABAQUS-SwiftComp GUI, and ANSYS-SwiftComp GUI.

If you want to model textile composites, it is better to use TexGen4SC
