MatCalc 6 release candidate (online since Friday 2017-09-15).


We are proud to announce that the new generation of MatCalc, Version 6 is now available. MatCalc 6 represents a major step in the evolution of the MatCalc software package, since it extends the simulation capabilities from thermo-kinetic analysis of precipitation to state parameter-based metallurgical process simulation. MatCalc 6 can be licensed in a basic and a pro version. For any inquiries on this, please contact MatCalc Engineering GmbH at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Highlighted features of MatCalc 6:

  • Fully coupled microstructure simulation including deformation, recovery, recrystallization as well as their interaction with precipitation. Simulate entire process chains with arbitrary heat treatment schedules as well as deformation steps. Investigate the evolution of grain size in single-class and multi-class models. Or follow long-range diffusion processes and their interaction with precipitation
  • All-new scripting language syntax, which makes scripting as easy as possible. Commands, previously coded with a sequence of single letters, are now fully text-based and self-explanatory. You will like this feature from the beginning. And what about your existing scripts in version 5 syntax? Most of them will continue to work also on the new MatCalc 6 without any modification, thus maintaining almost 95% downward compatibility.
  • New command line interpreter with a powerful and intuitive suggester: When writing your commands, the suggester offers you all possible choices. It has never been so easy and fast to use the command line.
  • All new look-and-feel. Navigate through your workspace, use the expose function to quickly find windows in the background, arrange them in either windowed mode, or as full screen with tabs. Have more space on your screen with the new console, which merges with the previous output window of version 5. Make use of numerous new functionality for changing plot styles, moving individual plots inside the frame window, or drag and drop the plot out of the frame into a seperate window. Or find your variables in the variables window quickly with the new filter function.
  • Stand-alone installation architecture: MatCalc 6 is installed in a directory, which is fully separated from your user files. Simply create a matcalc_user_data folder, and never overwrite your own files accidentally by any further installation or upgrade procedure. With this architeture, you can also easily put your projects into a cloud and access your project files from everywhere. Or store your own databases in the matcalc_user_data folder, and MatCalc 6 will find them there.
  • Easy-to-use installer and upgrader. Upgrade to the latest snapshot version with only a mouse-click.
  • MatCalc 6 comes with various licensing options, where you will certainly find one which will best fit your needs. Ask the guys at MatCalc Engineering.
