Matereality Service Bulletin: Software Update Includes HyperWorks Connection, CAE Modeler Upgrades, and More

Ithaca, NY USA - December 11, 2013Matereality software update7.03 delivers functionality enhancements and is also now available in the Altair HyperWorks environment. Log in or register for access at

Matereality's Workgroup Material DatabasePro material data management software, based on Version 7 technology, is now available through the Altair Partner Alliance with its innovative unit-based licensing system. HyperWorks users can access the latest Matereality 7 solution on the Global Data Center using the same leased HWUs they are already using to run HyperWorks, which makes partner applications available at no incremental cost or long-term commitment.


If you have a Matereality database and your company is a HyperWorks client, talk to us about creating a Workgroup to allow your team to access your database and the Matereality software tools. More details are also available for HyperWorks users at

Matereality Tutorial: Processing Information
Matereality Tutorial: Processing Information
Many materials are subject to a series of processing steps on their way to becoming a finished product. Matereality now provides a way to document these processes via a newly released capability that is accessible from the My Materials and Workgroup Materials apps. For example, a component may be cast, heat treated, and then galvanized. You can now capture the process parameters for each of these processing steps in detail
. Because Matereality handles such a wide variety of materials, the framework accommodates parameters required for a variety of processing types, including metal processing, plastics processing such as injection molding, as well as other material processing operations. Injection molding parameters can be transmitted via the CAE Modelers into Moldflow .udb files. 


Are you interested in capturing processing information? Contact us! We are seeking topical experts to work with us on outlining details of processes to ensure correct capture of this kind of information.

The roll-out transition of CAE Modelers to the new Version 7 technology continues:

  • A brand new, viscoelastic material modeler has been released, which aligns the elastic and viscoelastic components of the material model and also performs time-temperature shifting to allow viscoelastic material data to be used at other temperatures. The capability has been deployed exclusively at this time for SolidWorks 2014.

  • The Moldex3D plastics CAE Modeler has been upgraded to Version 7 technology, where you can view the raw data in great detail before you create the material model file.
  • The Dassault Systèmes SIMPOE plastics CAE Modeler has been upgraded to Version 7 technology and also fixes a units issue reported in connection with export of data related to shrinkage modeling.
  • SolidWorks Materials Web Portal and SolidWorks CAE Modeler have been updated to fix reported issues related to thermal and hyperelastic material modeling. A new viscoelastic modeler also has been deployed.
