LS-Pre­Post is an ad­vanced pre and post-proces­sor that is de­liv­ered free with LS-DY­NA. The user in­ter­face is de­signed to be both ef­fi­cient and in­tu­itive. LS-Pre­Post runs on Win­dows, Lin­ux, and Macs uti­liz­ing OpenGL graph­ics to achieve fast ren­der­ing and XY plot­ting. The lat­est builds can be down­loaded from LSTC's FTP Site.
