Fast, Easy, Accurate & Affordable Forming Simulation

What is Click2Form

Click2Form is a sheet metal forming simulation software that enables users to optimize their products for manufacturing, with the consideration of early formability, material utilization and cost. Evaluating feasibility within seconds is possible with the industry leading one-step inverse simulation technology. In addition to providing the users with areas of possible failure due to tearing and thinning, Click2Form has comprehensive blank utilization capabilities that provides optimal blank shape including the best layout for blank nesting and the associated material cost.

Why Click2Form

Design Better Products

Click2Form enables users to quickly and reliably check the formability of a part early in the product design cycle. With Click2Form users can visualize potential defects such as splits or wrinkles, and then modify to eliminate defects and improve overall design.

Easy to Use

Click2Form has a simple and highly intuitive workflow which is easy to learn and apply. Standard training sessions for Click2Form last only 4-6 hours although most users can learn Click2Form with no formal training at all!


Click2Form predicts accurate blank shapes that can be optimally nested in progressive and transfer die layouts within manufacturing constraints to save material and cost.

Click2Form Features

Geometry Creation and Simplification

Extract midsurface, fill holes and cutouts, remove flanges using Click2Form’s geometry preparation tools. In addition, use solidThinking’s Inspire tools to create and modify geometry.

Model Setup

If the part geometry is available in car coordinates, Click2Form automatically calculates the best stamping direction. The user can also specify the stamping direction. It is also possible to apply restraining forces corresponding to blankholder and drawbeads.

Materials Library

Click2Form provides a material library with properties for standard steel and aluminum grades. It is also possible to create a new material and save it within the user database.

Analysis and Results Visualization

The flat blank needed to form the part shape is available at the end of the analysis. Visualize thinning and other defects such as splits, wrinkles and loose metal.
