Horizon has closed the purchase of a new computing tool from Altair which will extend its virtual prototyping capabilities. This software stack will extend the company capabilities, in CFD, FEM, Crash analysis, and ensure project safety from OpenTower and RuggedPOD project.
The license agreement with the editor doesn’t allow us to share the access to the software with the community through the internet, we still can run some computation for it, and provide valuable results to extend RuggedPOD features. Any community member able to join us in our office can also get access to our virtual prototyping tool.
This acquisition is an add on to the extended work we do to support the FreeCAD community, by testing multiple software solutions, provide feedbacks on UI, and features to FreeCAD as to help this Open Source software to reach an higher level of quality.
