Matereality 4.0 Release:

DatapointLabs’ sister company Matereality, has released its Version 4.0 software with a powerful new interface and advanced software to view and work with material data.

New features include the Material Data Viewer which instantly visualizes data variations with parameters such as temperature, conditioning, time or speed. The Viewer has unit conversion, zoom features and one-click export to Excel. Collaboration tools aid e-mail sharing and embedding within internal web-sites and CMS.

The CAE Modeler is a SaaS module that transforms raw data into CAE material model input decks. The software can convert stress-strain data, rate dependent data, hyperelastic data into material cards for Abaqus, ANSYS, LS-DYNA, PAMCRASH, NX NASTRAN. Moldflow and Moldex3D are also supported.

DatapointLabs clients receive their test results via Personal Material Databases hosted by Matereality.
