    FieldView 16.1 Post-Processing, Visualization and Workflow Automation Solution has been selected Digital Engineering Editor’s Pick of the Week.

    Digital Engineering (DE; has announced that the 16.1 release of the FieldView CFD (computational fluid dynamics) post-processing, visualization and workflow automation solution from ac&e partner Intelligent Light was its Editor’s Pick of the Week for January 11, 2017.

    “By specializing on CFD post-processing, FieldView eliminates lots of the overhead in an all-in-one CFD system,” writes Anthony J. Lockwood, editor at large for Digital Engineering. “While this alone provides a good measure of efficiency, it also means the company’s engineers can focus on the productivity tools designed to get you interactively exploring and presenting data quickly.”

    “The line on FieldView is that it’s fast, easy to implement and easy to use,” he says. “It works with data from leading CFD systems – often certified to work with those systems – and most OSes. It can handle huge data sets and scale from workstations to HPC (high-performance computing) resources. It helps you capture best practices and create CFD workflows that make your processes more efficient, friendly and productive. You can run multiple simulations quickly, and its visualization and presentation capabilities are said to be top notch.”

    “Visualization [is] a key area of enhancement in FieldView 16.1,” Lockwood writes. “The software already came with the tools to create animations and 3D PDFs. It now has added functionality to create MP4 movies that you can use with your PowerPoint presentations or as YouTube videos. It also has a couple of new readers that let you see what’s happening with structured and unstructured VTK (Visualization ToolKit) data sets.”

    “If you’ve never tried FieldView, then sign up for evaluation and run it through it paces. Sounds well worth your time,” concludes Lockwood.
