The company will demonstrate Communicator 1.0 during National Manufacturing Week. The free software product is designed to enable distributed product teams to visualize, quantify and compare the company’s analysis results. Unlike static 3D viewers, Communicator allows users to understand the assumptions behind a given set of analysis results.

This is achieved through user-specified analysis quality criteria. Moldflow Corp. Booth 18035
