This course covers all the skills you need to get started modelling metal-forming process chains using DEFORM® 2D and 3D simulation.

The content presents comprehensive coverage of the DEFORM Integrated Manufacturing Process interface and covers a broad range of applications.

This course will cover the standard training for DEFORM 2D & 3D.

Who Should Attend?

This course is appropriate for attendees with no DEFORM experience, or for those who would like to sharpen their skills or refresh their knowledge.

For users interested in an in-depth course on special applications, they should also attend the DEFORM Advanced training course following on from this DEFORM Introduction course.


This online course is split into 3 sessions over 3 consecutive days at 2 hours each. Then an optional Q&A Session on the Friday afternoon.

Sessions run between 9:30am  – 11:30am.
