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.

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
