Effective Casting Simulation Using

SOLIDCast™, OPTICast™, and FLOWCast™

Come and see the world’s most popular casting simulation software in action! The Effective Casting Simulation seminar covers all aspects of system operation. Build/import sample casting models, run simulations and display results. You can even make animated movies from system output! Each attendee receives a complete set of training materials, plus a USB drive containing VERSION 8.5.0 of SOLIDCastTM, OPTICastTM and FLOWCastTM, case studies and more! You will even get a copy of the Effective Casting Simulation Training Videos.


December 3-5, 2019, Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology in Lancaster, PA, USA
