Snap-Fit Design Calculator

Welcome to BASF's Snap-Fit Design Calculator.

Use the Snap-Fit Calculator to create your own snap-fit designs. The software calculates stress and strength requirements employing an algorithm developed by BASF. The BASF algorithm revises classical physics theory on cantilever stresses in light of the advent of plastics. The goal is to provide more accurate calculations based on the unique, real-world performance characteristics of plastics compared with non-plastic materials.
