Animator4 is a postprocessor for a wide range of finite element analysis (FEA) applications. The program is based on over 30 years of experience in project work for the automotive industry. Started in the early ’90s, initial versions of the program were developed exclusively for the automobile manufacturers Volkswagen and Audi.
Animator4 impresses with a simple, clear interface, a structured command syntax and exceptional performance. The large whole-vehicle models commonly used in the automotive industry are displayed with maximum memory efficiency, excellent graphics performance and high graphical quality.
The simple command language allows easy automation of routines, while more complex evaluations can be automated using the integrated Python module.
In the last several years, the functionality has been extended towards NVH, the user interface has been adapted accordingly and special control elements have been developed.
