    Intelligent Light is excited to announce that the FieldView 16.1 release is ready for download.

    Our FieldView 16.1 Update delivers dozens of major and minor improvements based on customer requests. We focused on the biggest little problems reported by our users, to deliver benefits to every user, because little problems are not little if they get in the way of your productivity.

    As part of our development process we invited users who made feature requests to be part of our team. We spoke with them early in the design stage and then included them in the testing to be sure the new features met their needs.

    Thanks to this mutual effort, FieldView 16.1 has the largest number of fulfilled feature requests and resolved issues in years. All FieldView users will benefit as there really is something for everyone in FieldView 16.1. Whether that's the new lightweight high-quality video export with control for frame rate, the easy way to flip which axis is up when using a predefined view, the logarithmic scale for colormaps with its "powers of ten" annotations, or one of the dozens of other improvements. Check the full list on the What's New in FieldView 16.1 document.

    And because more and more users are adopting our extract based workflow ideas, we keep going further with features like the new VTK reader and a surface-based sampling method.

    User input is a cornerstone of our support and product development. It feels really good to be able to deliver on so many common feature requests with this update. Beyond the feature requests, the input of users in our development process was incredibly valuable. It was fantastic to see how quickly users could experience a new capability and immediately give us feedback on changes and additions that would make it even more useful in day to day engineering.

    Finally, to make it even easier for you, FieldView 16.1 will run with your FieldView 16 passwords.

    FieldView 16.1 is available today from the Customer Center

    London, UK, December 15th, 2015 

    Intelligent Light, the developer of FieldView 16 and provider of industry leading software and services for CFD workflows to engineering and research organizations, has joined forces with Visual Technology Services, developers of the renowned PDF3D Report Generation systems, to produce the first CFD tool with built-in 3D PDF interactive report generation features.

    The flagship FieldView application is the most widely used CFD post-processing software for engineering and research. FieldView delivers scalable parallel visualization from laptops to high-performance computing (HPC), including unsteady flows, numerical analysis, extensive solver interfaces and advanced post-processing and visualization techniques.

    "The FieldView 16 development team has been working tirelessly to deliver many valuable new features," commented Steve M. Legensky, General Manager and Founder of Intelligent Light. "The integration of the new 3D PDF publishing feature from PDF3D's technology will transform how our customers communicate and improve success in HPC engineering activities".

    This latest software release allows 3D visuals created in FieldView to be converted into the universally, freely accessible 3D PDF format, enabling faster and easier sharing and distribution of reports to any customer, without them having to install specific software to view it. The reports enable interactive 3D review of surface contours, streamlines and legends. The report encoding methods use Visual Technology Services' highly compressed PRC (ISO 14739) technology, which can produce detailed images from large data files without sacrificing quality.

    FieldView is used in a wide variety of markets including aerospace, automotive, energy and civil engineering. The popular CFD post-processor is used by engineering leaders in large organizations, by engineering consultants and by several top motorsports teams.

    FieldView 16 and XDBview 2 Now Available

    3D PDF export, faster data read, reduced memory usage and many more improvements

    Just a little less than a year has passed by since our release of FieldView 15 and I am happy to announce that our new version, FieldView 16, is ready for download. While software users sometimes feel like installing a new version is not going to impact them much, I am confident that every single FieldView user will benefit from this release.

    You will find that FieldView 16 is faster to read your data than previous versions and will also use less memory. Data read can easily be made even faster and more memory efficient by selecting the right Data Input option. When you don't need to perform Dataset Sampling or to compute a lot of streamlines, select "Less" Grid Processing for faster data input. In cases when you do need that kind of performance, select "More" right from the Data Input panel and you will use more memory to get better performance during you session.

    FieldView 16 is the first CFD post-processor to introduce a built-in 3D PDF export. This standard format is a great way to present and share your results, allowing interactive exploration via rotation, zooming, panning and commenting in Adobe Acrobat Reader and in 3D PDF viewer apps.

    Other highlights of this release include:

    • New Vertices and Shaded Vertices display types for better insight and fast performance
    • The ability to sweep surfaces coming from an XDB extract and to synchronize this operation between multiple datasets for easy animations and side-by-side comparison
    • More control over the location of Surface Flows
    • A new Growing display type for pathlines animation
    • 10x faster read times for AcuSolve users, compared to FieldView 15
    • The ability to read single-file transient data as steady-state
    • Support for results from FLOW-3D v11

    We're also introducing the second version of XDBview. Our free, sharable viewer for XDB extracts, now includes the same sweep capability as FieldView 16 and can now read your CAD geometries in STL format.

    To learn more about these new versions, I encourage you to read our What's New in FieldView 16 document (Japanese version).

    FieldView 16 is a major release. You will need to request new passwords from Intelligent Light. FieldView 16 passwords will work for both version 15 and 16, but as of this release FieldView version 14 and earlier are no longer supported. If you need to test FieldView 16 with your data or workflows before upgrading, feel free to request additional temporary passwords and we'll be happy to provide them free of charge.

    Please contact our FieldView Support Team  or your account manager for more information.
