Thinkbox Software Releases Sequoia

Thinkbox Software Releases Sequoia

Thinkbox Software has released Sequoia, its standalone point mesher. The software converts point cloud data from laser scanners, photogrammetry and other sources.

Sequoia runs on Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X and uses out-of-core asynchronous parallel processing to handle large data sets that exceed system memory on tablets, laptops and graphics workstations. It is natively integrated through Thinkbox’s Deadline compute management solution.

“The reception to Sequoia since we started previewing the technology last year has been tremendous. Our beta testers have been using it in exciting ways we’ve never dreamed, which has pushed us to make Sequoia even better. We’re thrilled to now bring it to market and for architects, designers, engineers and beyond to discover this new faster way of working,” said Chris Bond, founder, Thinkbox Software.

Kontron Expands Offerings

Kontron Expands Offerings

Kontron, a provider of embedded computer technology, has expanded its portfolio to include servers and modules with the Intel Processor D-1500 product family. The company has also entered a value-added reseller agreement with Rauch Netzwertechnik.

The first set of products with the D-1500 family includes the COM Express COMe-bBD6, the Kontron VPX server blade VX3058 and SYMKLOUD. The Xeon-based processors, according to the company, provide enhancements in form factor, versatility, high availability and robustness. Kontron will offer its new products with 2 to 8 cores, support for Windows and Linux, and two ports of 10GbE Intel Ethernet options.

For the company’s SYMKLOUD technology, the addition of the D-1500 processor family enables it to support up to nine modular servers. Kontron is releasing a 16 core count version of SYMKLOUD early next year. This version will be VMWare certified and have System-on-Chip (SoC) technology. It will have support for error-correcting code memory, Intel Virtualization Technology and Intel Advanced Encryption Standard.

To increase distribution of its SYMKLOUD, Kontron has entered a reseller agreement. Rausch Netzwerktechnik will start offering the 10GbE SYMKLOUD converged modular servers and a full suite of integration services.

“Aligning with Rausch Netzwerktechnik as a strategic Channel partner is pivotal to the Kontron growth strategy in the hosting and cloud provider markets,” said Thomas Feil, vice president of Channel Sales, Kontron. “The SYMKLOUD product line delivers the best price-performance ratio for data centers and, in turn, enables them to pass on any savings to their end customers so they can be more successful online.”

ANSYS Releases New Versions of SpaceClaim, FENSAP

ANSYS Releases New Versions of SpaceClaim, FENSAP

ANSYS, a provider of simulation software, has released new versions of SpaceClaim and FENSAP. This iteration, according to the company, enhances speed, efficiency and reliability.

SpaceClaim 2016 has more tools for geometry creation and editing, 10x performance improvements and expanded file import capabilities. Users can now import ECAD files with variable fidelity support, Sketchup 2015, SOLIDWORKS 2015, Creo 3.0 and CATIA V6 formats.

For design, the software is now livelinked with Keyshot for easy model rendering updates. A Skin Surfacing tool has been added to reverse engineer geometry by surface fitting to faceted models. Users can direct edit patch boundaries, connect neighboring patches and automate smoothing.

“Since day one, our focus has been to provide customers with a solution to quickly create, edit or repair geometries as needed in an open platform environment,” said Frank DeSimone, senior director of product development at ANSYS. “For this release, we focused on solving challenges working with complex geometry, developing new tools like the Shrinkwrap and Skin Surface to decrease the time needed to reverse-engineer parts or prepare models for 3-D printing.”

The new release of FENSAP offers improved integration with ANSYS CFX, tools for predicting in-flight icing, more flexible meshing options and direct extraction of simulation results.

“The new release delivers streamlined import and export of required data for more efficient and accurate exchange between the FENSAP products and ANSYS computational fluid dynamics solutions,” said Andre Bakker, senior director of fluids business unit, ANSYS. “Maximizing the accuracy of icing simulation ensures that the engineering insight gained from analysis and the resulting design decisions made truly serve to improve flight safety.”
