Engineous Software has started shipping Isight-FD version 2.0. The new release offers an extended set of design driver techniques that help users rapidly find better designs, as well as advanced visualisation for easier interpretation of design results and additional components that reduce the effort required to integrate commercial design and analysis tools.
New capabilities include a stochastic design improvement (SDI) component, additional optimisation techniques, a highly visual correlation map tool, enhanced data exchange, a Matlab component, and major enhancements to the Visual Design Driver interface. In addition, to simplify users' tool integration efforts, Engineous, along with its development partners, have created dozens of components that work with major commercial CAD and CAE programs.
“Research results from our CAE surveys indicate that manufacturers' top pain points include CAD/CAE and multi-solver integration, driving design from analysis and capturing analysis knowledge,” says Don Brown of Collaborative Product Development Associates (CPDA). “Tools like Isight-FD 2.0 help bridge the gaps, easing the integration and automation of leading CAD and CAE tools. Ultimately, a comprehensive design/simulation framework will support analysis as an everyday tool for all designers, supported by expert KBE.”
“We worked closely with our customers to define the requirements for the 2.0 release,” says JP Evans, vice president of marketing for Engineous Software. “This included customer validation surveys and hands-on product usability testing. These efforts helped us verify that we were hitting the mark in terms of the customers' needs. The top three customer requests - improved visualisation, better CAD/CAE integration and enhanced engineering methods - are all reflected in the 2.0 release.”
A sixty-day Isight-FD 2.0 evaluation is available for users to test drive and learn more about the technology. To ensure user success, free online training is also being offered by Engineous. Course registration and requests for a free evaluation copy can be found at the company's website.
