Less is more – SIGMA presents new user-interface


SIGMASOFT® 6.0 release coming up

During 25 years of development the simulation-suite SIGMASOFT® was regularly extended. New possibilities based on new technologies, enhanced options and functionalities made the user-interface more and more complex over the years. A newly designed ergonomic desktop was developed for the current version 6.0. The intuitive usability makes it easier for experts as well as for occasional users, to get to their desired results quicker.

Aachen, September 1st, 2022 – During K 2022 in Duesseldorf (October 19-26th 2022) SIGMA Engineering GmbH presents the new version of SIGMASOFT® 6.0 at booth B29 in hall 13. Software users want “More of Less” – this summarizes the current challenge in development. The huge number of features and options, which modern CAE software offers, makes it difficult for users to swiftly find and select the best next step. This results in time loss and demotivation. Then, easy tasks and calculations seem to be difficult without any need.  

This is exactly the starting point of the new SIGMASOFT® 6.0. The new user interface was freed from optional buttons and dead freight. Tools, functions, and options dynamically appear in the working area only where and when they are useful. Consistently redesigned and enlarged icons facilitate intuitive usability. Also for occasional users and starters, the hurdle and effort to “quickly simulate something” shrinks considerably.

“It was about time, to adjust our user interface to the newest industry needs. SIGMASOFT® 6.0 not only looks fresh and modern, but it also makes the application more intuitive, effective, and easier”, says Timo Gebauer, CTO of SIGMA. “All expert functions, as well as the exotic stuff continue to exist of course. But now they show up in much better places for them. Important is, that the user has only the handful of tools on his desk, that he needs at this moment.”

The new version also includes the latest additions of SIGMASOFT® including Virtual Thermoplastics and Compression Molding, presented to the global expert community in Duesseldorf for the first time.
