HyperForm is a finite-element based, sheet metal forming simulation solution. HyperForm combines an extremely fast one-step solver and incremental forming solution with the geometry and meshing capabilities of HyperMesh.
HyperForm's die module brings product designers closer to the manufacturing process by enabling engineers to create and analyze conceptual die designs in order to generate an optimized die. Die concepts can then be read into any CAD system as a starting block for the actual die build. Integrated with HyperView, HyperForm can export data in H3D format allowing results to be visualized using HyperView Player with any web browser. HyperForm One-Step and incremental analyses are tightly integrated with HyperMorph and HyperStudy, which allows the optimization of forming tools and process parameters using a highly automated approach.
