Research Licenses for FLOW-3D AM

Our FLOW-3D AM software is used around the world for cutting edge research of additive manufacturing and laser welding processes. To successfully model these complex applications often requires hands-on user training and technical support from our team, which is why we do not offer a free, unsupported license for these products.

If you are interested in using FLOW-3D AM or one of its components, FLOW-3D WELD or FLOW-3D DEM, in your academic research, we encourage you to contact us at info@flow3d.in. You can also submit a Research license application, and a CFD engineer will be in touch with you to discuss your application and provide details about our licensing and technical support options.

Flow Science India offers free teaching licenses of FLOW-3D to faculty members who are interested in incorporating CFD software into their course syllabus. Applications require a course number and description. If the application is accepted, a network license for the appropriate FLOW-3D product* will be issued to the faculty member. If you have any questions, please email info@flow3d.in.
