GNS Generator 4

Software for preparation and handling of PAM-CRASH®, RADIOSS ®, LS-DYNA® and ABAQUS® models.

Generator4 is a pre-processor to prepare and modify PAM-CRASH®, RADIOSS ®, LS-DYNA® and ABAQUS® models with ease. Based on the intuitive graphical user interface of the Animator4 software, Generator4 is a very easy to use tool for handling and modifying models typically used in occupant and pedestrian safety analysis. Powerful features for the positioning of FEM dummies and impactors, and the automated calculation of impact points (FMVSS201) improve user productivity and efficiency.
