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 http://analyswift.com/software-trial/ 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
