Introducing FieldView 18

FieldView 18 has arrived! Download it today from our Customer Center or view our What's New in FieldView 18 document.

FieldView 18 adds realistic rendering, reflected environments and unlimited colors to bring your results to life. Increased performance, new data readers and advances in our CFD Data Analytics capabilities make FieldView 18 the fastest, most powerful FieldView ever. ​

Bring CFD to Life

Predefined Materials Provide an Intuitive Materials Selection

Easily apply predefined material properties from the new Materials tab. No need to adjust a long list of light reflection settings. Choose between six predefined reflected environments for a realistic effect that suits your application. Then add a background image to further increase the realistic impact of your scene.

Editable Material Colors - Choose from Over 16 million Colors

Materials like glass and plastic come in various colors in real life. FieldView 18 lets you color your surfaces with a virtually unlimited pallet. Hit the color wheel icon to select from over 16 million colors. Save and reuse your favorites. There is no limit to the number of colors used per session.

Filter Bar for Boundary Types - Easily Group Boundary Conditions by Name

Type a word in the filter bar and the list of Boundary Types automatically updates. Hit Select All, then OK, and the corresponding Boundary Surface gets created. In the same way, Deselect All operates on the filtered list. The Filter Bar supports wildcards and has been designed for performance on 1,000s of entries.

Data Analytics - Intelligent Light Continues to be at the Forefront of Data Analytics Applied to CFD

FieldView 18 comes with new MATLAB/Octave scripts for querying CFD results over time, performing a POD analysis and writing the results to PLOT3D. This allows you to close the loop and visualize modes as Iso Surfaces in FieldView, as shown in this image. Save videos as individual images to run an analysis on the pixels and avoid having to resample your data.

Live Webinar - Easy Access to CFD Data for Analysis

CFD Data Analysis with FieldView 17

LIVE Webinar

Thursday, May 3
12 noon ET (1600 GMT)

If you rely on Excel, Matlab, Octave and NumPy in your daily work, FieldView 17 allows fast I/O of CFD data for further analysis through MAT-File and CSV.

Query your CFD results at super-high speed (200,000 points/sec and more) from a list of points provided in *.mat, *.csv or plain text.

FieldView surfaces can also be exported to MAT-File and CSV to perform Reduced Order Analysis (DMD, POD, etc.), Fourier transforms and many more analyses.

Because performance matters, FieldView 17 also provides:

  • New built in Q-criterion function - easy to use and 10 X faster than previous FieldView
  • 10 X faster reading of arbitrary polyhedral cells
  • 2 X faster Surface Flow calculation
  • 40% faster reading of XDB extracts
Please join us for this live web event. If you would like to watch a recording, register now, and we will send you a note when the recording is available.

The 40 minute presentation will be followed by a live Q&A.

    Introducing FieldView Update 16.1

    Click for video on Youtube. FieldView 16.1 image by Intelligent Light. Simulation courtesty of FOI.

    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
