SIMPOSIUM, a success story
  We already presented you SIMPOSIUM, it is a Research and Development project of an interoperable platform including various simulation tools, making possible the virtual testing of complex components (shape and structure). This year, SIMPOSIUM project has been elected as a “success story” and presented at a FoF workshop in Geneva from the 12th to the 14th of June 2013.
Tip: Handling drag and drop
  Once you have performed different simulations, you may need to display them side by side for comparison purposes. To do so, open a new analysis page. Then click on the first result. The scan explorer displays the available images. The green circle stands for an image already displayed in an analysis page, the red square for a not displayed image. Drag and drop the useful scans into the new analysis page. Now click on another result, you can drag and drop other images. A grey rectangle stands for the future positioning of the dragged image in the page. Read more and watch the video.
