GrafiCalc® Elements is game-changing software that combines the disciplines of sketching and calculations in a single application that enables users to work with geometry in the same way as spreadsheets work with numbers to solve engineering design challenges while making informed decisions.
With GrafiCalc Elements you can associate geometry and calculations in the same worksheet to capture your design intent in a single flexible solution model. Then if any geometric or numeric parameters are changed the entire solution model is updated automatically in real time. When geometry and calculations aspects of any design challenge are inseparable, GrafiCalc Elements can deliver the precise solution with unprecedented ease, speed, and accuracy.
Today millions of engineers are using Microsoft Excel to perform geometry-dependent design calculations the hard way - because it is not possible to enter geometry directly in Excel and users are obliged to mathematically describe the geometry in the calculations.
Now you can simply point-and-click to link Microsoft Excel and GrafiCalc Elements to dynamically exchange information in both directions. This enables you to perform geometry-dependent calculations in GrafiCalc Elements to feed Excel calculations and conversely use Excel to drive GrafiCalc Elements solution models.

When used as a standalone application, GrafiCalc Elements helps users to "sketch and solve" a wide range of design challenges quickly and easily while making informed decisions.
You can exchange geometry between GrafiCalc Elements and any popular CAD application in both directions. This enables you to import geometry into GrafiCalc Elements to perform calculations and do "what if" analysis. Geometry in GrafiCalc Elements can be exported to CAD.
In the example above, initial geometry was imported from CAD into GrafiCalc Elements as DXF file to perform "what if" analysis of a disc brake to account for the design variables. Final geometry was saved in GrafiCalc Elements in DXF format to build the optimal 3D model in CAD.
Since problems and solutions are electronically stored in GrafiCalc Elements models you can manage, share, and reuse the intellectual property without re-inventing the wheel every time. You can also print a drawing directly in GrafiCalc Elements as well copy and paste information from GrafiCalc Elements into Word and Outlook to create professional quality design reports.
