Insul version 9 eng

Insul version 9.0 

Marshall Day Acoustics are delighted to announce the release of version 9.0 of INSUL.

This new version presents a major over haul of the user interface to provide a new foundation for the next 10 years development of this world leading software.  The most obvious feature to the thousands of INSUL users will be the 3 D illustration of the partition to be calculated.  This can be rotated, zoomed and an X ray view displayed.  This makes the communication with an end user of the calculations easier and provides a degree of confidence that the prediction is based on the users actual partition design.  A trial version can be downloaded from the download page on this website and a trial key obtained from your local distributor.
