The name "FEMSnap" stands for a web based calculation service offered by LANXESS Deutschland GmbH to design a variety of snap-fits made from thermoplastics.
The program is based on the Finite-Element-Method (FEM) and allows quick and easy evaluation of snap-fits when analytical methods are insufficient or impractical.

FEMSnap is available after a _Business partner login which requires a one-time _registration.
Calculation results and recommendations are immediately delivered via email to the user.

Following please find two examples for FEMSnap calculation results:
_example I-Snap R1
_example L-Snap
