Advanced Support

Receive advanced support from engineers that use Simcenter 3D every day.

SDA Software is more than a premier value added reseller of Simcenter 3D. We employ award-winning engineers that use it every day as part of our professional consulting services. We have the capacity to provide advanced technical support and consulting services to our customers.

Our standard support is included when you purchase a product license or subscription (active maintenance):

  • Licensing and setup questions
  • Basic technical questions about software features and building models
  • Simple troubleshooting.
We understand that for particularly challenging issues more advanced support is required:
  • Detailed help building complex models (even production simulations)
  • Extensive troubleshooting, debugging, and testing of models
  • Custom consulting projects.

Advanced support isn’t included with active maintenance.
