Simulation is more than Software


CADFEM provides a comprehensive product line of CAE software and hardware from leading technology suppliers. Working closely with customers, we assess their individual requirements, then recommend suitable products and implement them smoothly and efficiently.

ANSYS Software

ANSYS stands for simulation software for virtually any kind of application and is the most widely used software solution in the industry. Moreover, ANSYS is one of the world´s leading CAE software for research and academia.

Complementary tools

Our software portfolio also covers software for special requirements, i.e. products such as AnyBody, Diffpack, LS-DYNA and optiSlang as well as the CADFEM ANSYS Extensions developed by CADFEM itself.

eCADFEM – Software on Demand

eCADFEM enables users to apply simulation programs flexibly in line with their specific demands – just if and for as long as simulation is needed. 750 customers have already used this cost-efficient solution.

Hardware + complete systems

Unpack, switch on and start: this is no problem at all with CADFEM’s complete systems as they have already been installed, pre-configured and tested when the customer starts to use them. We also supply single components and offer a comprehensive hardware support (Service Level Agreement).


CADFEM provides customers extensive assistance, ranging from education and training, user support and a complete range of engineering simulation consulting services up to software adaption and process automation, thus enabling customers to use the full potential of CAE.

Information days and seminars

CADFEM counts 8000 participant days per year for its information days and software-related seminars that provide state-of-the art know-how in order to keep users up to date with the latest innovations and facilitate efficient software use for them.
