XFINASIT Co. is a software company that is specialized in developing the CAD-embedded software for structural finite element analysis and design. XFINASIT provides a new innovative and unique AutoCAD embedded software, X-SEA AutoCAD, that covers both the offshore structural engineering, wind turbine engineering and structural engineering.

XFINASIT provides a X-OpenFAST software that is the AuoCAD-embeded pre/postprocessor of OpenFAST (NREL, USA) for wind turbine application. The general purpose software XFINAS for construction application is being developed based on CAD-embedded software.
