Tutorials

The following tutorials will help you to get to know our product. In each tutorial, a file is generated in individual steps, whereby the results are available as flixo files. You can either perform the procedures yourself, or just read the text, watch the tutorial film, and examine the results. The individual steps are illustrated with help of short films.

The tutorials have been generated with flixo version 7. With version 8 new functions have been added and the look  of flixo has been customized. However, the tutorials can be  performed without restrictions using version 8.

Your browser settings must allow the showing of Flash films in order to view them.

Basic Techniques

This tutorial illustrates the entry of a simple model with flixo, the definition of materials, the assignment of boundary conditions, and the generation of a report.

Advanced Techniques

After having acquired the basic techniques, this tutorial explains the entry of more complex constructions. This example explains how to generate a window model from individual components.

DXF Import

, ,
In this tutorial, another flixo application is explained. This application allows you to use documents, which have been generated with CAD software (e.g. AutoCAD).

Window Frame Analysis and Wizards

,
In this tutorial, the different wizards, which facilitate data entry for the materials table and database are explained. Furthermore, the modeling and analysis of window frames according to European norms is described.

Psi-Value and U-Value calculation

In this tutorial different Psi-values (Psi-value with 2 components, Psi-value with 3 components and edge Psi-value) as well U-values (U  joint value according to EN ISO 12631, equivalent U-value, U-value for constructions with two layers and roller shutterbox U-value) are calculated.

Document Templates

In this tutorial, the creation and arrangement of document templates is illustrated. With document templates you can easily change the appearance and characteristics of documents based on the template. If, for example, your company logo should appear on all report pages, then a template containing this logo can be created.

Parametric Objects

, ,
In this tutorial, you will adjust the lengths of parametric edges, so that the component can exactly be inserted into a new situation. In a second step, the tutorial illustrates how you can define edges as a parameter of complex objects.

Screws according to EN ISO 12631


This tutorial illustrates the definition of a periodically existing screw as an equivalent 3-dimensional object. Important and relevant points for the calculation are emphasized.
