GrafiCalc
GrafiCalc 7.0
Mechanical Design Innovation And Validation Software

GrafiCalc® is field-proven software that enables users to conceptualize, analyze, optimize, and solve a wide range of mechanical design challenges with unprecedented ease, speed, and accuracy while making informed decisions.

GrafiCalc is especially effective during the early stages of the product development process when conflicts are the easiest to detect and the least expensive to fix. By focusing on form and function from conception through manufacturing, GrafiCalc enables users to gain major competitive advantages by bringing higher quality products to market faster - at significantly lower cost.

GrafiCalc can be used standalone as well in conjunction with Microsoft Office and all popular CAD applications on any computer running Vista, XP, Windows 7, or Windows 8.

GrafiCalc Enables You To

  • Automate Mechanism and Machinery Design GrafiCalc can help you to simulate and solve virtually any imaginable design challenge that involves motion without the need to make a 3D model first. View Demo (2.40 Minutes)
  • Automate Calculations GrafiCalc is driven by a game-changing automated graphical calculations engine that virtually eliminates tedious mathematical calculations and equations solving from the product design process. With GrafiCalc you can simply point-and-click to associate geometry and calculations in the same worksheet. Subsequently, the calculations are updated automatically if the geometry changes.

User Success

"We used GrafiCalc in the conceptual design stage to develop the equations for linear motors that drive food-processing machinery. Information received from GrafiCalc immensely helped us to design the optimal machine using SolidWorks."

Robert Brandt
Technical Director
Eastern Instruments, USA

"As a consulting engineer using AutoDesk Inventor I find GrafiCalc an invaluable contributor to my practice providing machine design and product development services to clients. Anyone involved in tracking complex machine movement or forces or a myriad of other engineering tasks would enjoy a great advantage by employing the power of GrafiCalc."

"Excellent knowledge database, eLearning videos are great tools to understand GrafiCalc capabilities, email support is fast and precise. It's exciting to learn how much we can do."

Raymundo Pastrana
Consulting Mechanical Engineer
Puebla, Mexico

"GrafiCalc has saved us considerable time in the modeling and optimization of the geometry used in our positive displacement machinery. What we used to do with geometric data from our CAD system and numerical data from our spreadsheet models is now entirely done within GrafiCalc at a fraction of the time that it used to take. Consider me a satisfied customer!"
