Altair Inspire Cast (formerly Click2Cast) software is a fast, easy, accurate and affordable casting simulation environment focused on creating high quality components with increased profitability through a highly intuitive user experience. It is the only tool that caters to beginners and experts alike, from product designers to foundry engineers. Right from early design phase, users can visualize typical casting defects such as air entrapment, shrinkage porosity, cold shuts, mold degradation and rectify them avoiding costly downstream corrections. Guided process templates offer 5 easy steps to simulate Gravity Die, Gravity Sand, Investment, High Pressure, Low Pressure Die Casting and Tilt Pouring. Altair Inspire Cast's innovative experience enables users to increase product quality and design better products with a few hours of training. Design for Castings Radically new designs in combination with new materials demand designers to evaluate their designs early. Engage early with Altair Inspire Cast to simulate possible issues upfront with minimal or no training. As the process gets refined the ability to further investigate and optimize the process makes Altair Inspire Cast uniquely valuable during the entire product development cycle from early design to manufacturing. Minimize Process Complexity It is typical in the industry to first design a process and then simulate it. Altair Inspire Cast turns that concept overs its head by helping users evolve the process in tandem with their ideas. You can start the filling with virtualized in-gates that will guide you through areas of porosity and the right risers to compensate. Gravity, Die, High Pressure, Low Pressure, Investment and Tilt casting, all have guided templates for refinement. Improve Quality and Profitability State of the art, bi-phasic Finite Element formulation allows for capturing the filling and solidification process with great precision. This helps with building great quality castings with high margins. Features: Ease of Use with 5 Simple Steps Simulate, run analysis, optimize, and cast final part all within one comprehensive environment and user-friendly interface. Variety of Casting Templates to Simulate Altair Inspire Cast offers a number of casting templates to simulate high and low pressure die casting, gravity sand, and investment casting. Optimize Ingate Design and Position Altair Inspire Cast allows quick and simple ingate simulation - simply select the size and position and Altair Inspire Cast will auto-generate the ingate. Validate Full Casting Designs Altair Inspire Cast allows users to validate full casting designs including cavities, runners and overflows.
