TAK2000 Specifications

TAK2000 is is a Windows based program with integrated material properties, plotting, and output tabulation. You can customize your integrated environment by "plugging-in" any executable program or batch file into the WorkBench integrated environment

Pro or Lite? The Pro edition comes complete with all the features a Thermal Analyst would expect, including the ability to model up to 40,000 nodes. The Lite, has many of the same features as Pro, but is limited to 100 nodes. Two sizes to meet different needs.
