GIFT-2D is a generalized rigid-plastic finite element program for interactive computer simulation of two-dimensional metal forming problems. The main purpose of this program is the analysis of industrial processes such as extrusion, drawing, forging, nosing, rolling and sheet metal bending, where the design of punch and die must be optimized in order to obtain a required final shape of the workpiece. This paper describes its graphic features and the user-program interface in the actual version implemented on a FPS/350X. The user can control and modify main execution control data and visualize on the screen the contour plots of the main variables at each step while running on-line. A rezoning option is available to regularize the initial mesh or for problems with unacceptable mesh distorsion.
