Laser cutting models provide solutions, varying from analytical steady-state equations based on singular physical sub-processes easily to be calculated, to fully numerical time dependent simulations requiring several days for the calculation of a single cut. In order to solve this dilemma CALCut calculates the three-dimensional, steady-state process including all relevant sub-processes by a combination of semi-analytical and semi-numerical algorithms. Systematic parameter screening is enabled.
