DYNAmore Ecosystem

Our tools are intended to make your work with LS-DYNA easier and are enjoying steadily growing popularity. The programs are written in Perl and Fortran and are available for Windows and Linux. From July 2022 the DYNAmore tools are available as a rental model.

Since 20 years the DYNAmore tools, for instance, for the pre- and post-processing or the quality assurance of simulation models, are becoming more and more popular. This, however, goes along with an increasing demand for technical support, functional enhancements, and assistances during the installation.

Thus, the DYNAmore tools will be relaunched under a new licensing model, which starts from July 1st, 2022. Part of this relaunch, on the one hand, is the switch to a lease-based distribution model, which includes an extended technical support. On the other hand, the tools have been partially renamed and are now grouped in packages to allow for a maximum of customer flexibility.

Please note that technical support, enhancements, and updates will only be accessible for customers within the lease model. For existing customers, a grace period until the end of Q3/2022 applies for the changeover; the keys are issued until September 30th, 2022. For customers who have contributed to the development of the tools, these will remain free of charge.

Please find below a list of the particular packages together with the tools that are included. Note that these packages can be booked separately. Herewith, we achieve the greatest possible individuality with respect to our customers needs:
