“We use FWsim primarily to design all our pyrotechnic displays, whether small or large, because of the realistic effects visualization, and easy integration with our firing systems. We often perform pyromusicals, and FWsim provides excellent tools to quickly design the desired choreography.
We also use FWsim to visualize and communicate ideas and concepts for new products with our factory in China. Because the effects render very accurately, the sample products always match the ideas we come up with. Overall we are extremely satisfied with the performance of the FWsim package, and will continue to use it for all our pyrotechnic needs.” Yannick Maaskant, Royal Fireworks, Netherlands
