Composites Braiding Designer

The Composites Braiding Role provides an advanced braiding fiber simulation and allows designers to visualize fiber paths on complex surfaces and optimize machine parameters to achieve desired fiber orientations.

Composites Braiding Designer also ensures correct mandrel generation to guarantee correct fiber volume fractions to minimize mass, and provides a consistent virtual process chain to automate the existing manual braiding processes planning.

The overall value is to allow quicker manufacturing setup, fewer physical prototypes and higher quality braided production parts.
