The GeoDict Base Package
The GeoDict Base Package forms the base of "The Digital Material Laboratory".
It contains the basic features and the base modules delivered with every GeoDict license.
The Base Package includes the following basic features:
A structured, clear, and user-friendly graphical user interface.
Raycaster-Render-Engine for fast and advanced 2D and 3D visualization of material models and simulation results.
Voxel- and analytic object-editing tools for easy and interactive fine-tuning voxel-by-voxel and by object for adjustment of material models in 3D.
Image and video capturing and processing tools for professional editing of images and the creation of sophisticated videos from material models and simulation results.
Scripting interfaces to Python and MATLAB® to automate processes and seamlessly integrate GeoDict into current workflows.
