MAGMASOFT® 6.0 – Simulation Made Easy

Dear Sir or Madam,

Welcome to the second issue of this year's MAGMAacademy newsletter!

Component and process design should not only take place quickly and yield optimal results – getting there should also be as comfortable as possible. MAGMASOFT® has been continuously further developed over the last 35 years. The new functionalities have turned MAGMASOFT® into a more powerful tool and resulted in an advanced user interface.

MAGMASOFT® 6.0 comes with a completely new, ergonomic user interface that makes work much easier for users. Functions are easier to find and new icons and toolbars provide a streamlined appearance in addition to intuitive usability.

As usual, you will find the corresponding news from the LEARNING WORLD at the end of today's article.

Best regards from Aachen,

Your MAGMAacademy team

P.S.: The foundry world is already looking forward to the most important trade fair for foundry technology in Düsseldorf, GIFA (June 12-16, 2023). The MAGMAacademy will be there again with its own booth. You will find us in hall 12, booth A20. Come visit us and meet our international team of trainers. We look forward to seeing you there!



Here, you can find all available dates for attending our webinars for MAGMASOFT® 6.0, which are free of charge for maintenance customers.



Alternatively, take part in a one-day update training course at the MAGMAacademy. The advantage of the classroom training is the possibility to get an in-depth knowledge about how to operate the new software by means of concrete practical exercises with our MAGMA experts, and to discuss individual questions. Your investment: 500 € plus VAT, Date upon request.


MAGMASOFT® 6.0 – Simulation Made Easy

MAGMASOFT® users play a critical role in the production of high-quality cast components. Users not only simulate complex casting processes, but make important contributions as part of complex process chains in the metal casting industry. With MAGMASOFT® 6.0, these users can work even more efficiently and experience casting process simulation in a new way. They benefit by needing fewer clicks and reach their objectives even faster.

Streamlined, More Intuitive – Simply Easier!

MAGMASOFT® has been continuously further developed over the last 35 years to create a more powerful tool. While the new functionalities have helped to improve performance, they have also made the user interface more complex.

The entire user interaction in MAGMASOFT® 6.0 has been redesigned. The goal was to provide the appropriate function when the user needs it and where he expects it. Especially in the Geometry, Mesh and Result Perspectives, new toolbars, simplified and grouped by function, support users even more effectively in their daily use. The reduced number of menus gives users immediate access to the most important functions. As a result, using the perspectives is clearer and users can focus on carrying out their essential steps. A personal and perspective-dependent favorites menu also allows users to save relevant functions for direct access. New keyboard shortcuts shorten input time and further simplify work.

A new interactive 3D coordinate system allows users to rotate and orient geometries in an intuitive way. Views and settings relevant to multiple perspectives are centrally controlled in MAGMASOFT® 6.0.

MAGMASOFT® users also benefit from up to 80 % shorter project loading times. This helps them to switch more quickly between individual projects or project versions.

Visualize Results Faster – And Work With Them More Easily

With the new continuous color scale and the new X-ray display, MAGMASOFT® 6.0 enables an even more realistic and precise evaluation of simulation results. In addition, the values of the scale can be adjusted either directly or interactively with the mouse wheel.

Evaluating results is one of the most important steps in casting process simulation. With MAGMASOFT® 6.0, users analyze and communicate their simulation results even faster. Both the overall visualization performance of the Result Perspective and the performance in the 'Multi View' have been improved. Users benefit from up to 10 times faster and smoother result evaluation.

With the integration of MAGMAinteract® in the Project Perspective and in the Assessment Perspective, users comfortably visualize intermediate results and geometrical variations. 

The trainings and workshops in the MAGMAacademy are, of course, already conducted with the new version MAGMASOFT® 6.0. You can find all available dates for participation in our webinars for MAGMASOFT® 6.0, which are free of charge for maintenance customers on our event-calendar.


All learning contents have been updated to the new version MAGMASOFT® 6.0. You can see which flashcards have changed or are new by looking at the markings. You can conveniently "flick" through these flashcards.
