When you have a question, first consider the Help system in your product (use the Help Menu, the F1 key, or the Help button “?”). There are over 1500 pages of documentation in CarSim that can be quickly searched using the Search Help item from the Help menu.
If your software contract is currently in maintenance, then you can get personal tech support by email or telephone. (Email is recommended for more technical issues because you can attach files that help us reproduce your situation.)
The most efficient way to get custom support is by sending an email:
The email is generated with a short form that ensures we have the necessary information, and is routed to the best expert at Mechanical Simulation for your case.
