Support the Project

Previous donations have already been very helpful on supporting development of new features and bringing DWSIM to new platforms (Raspberry Pi, macOS, Android, iOS). As DWSIM becomes more mature, development efforts must go towards more complex, specific models and systems. As complexity increases, more effort (= time and money) is required.

By becoming a patron, you will support future development of DWSIM while getting access to exclusive support channels and features, including custom-made plug-ins/add-ins which won't be distributed to anyone else except you.
