Concurrent announced today the certification of its CAEFEM / Lumino Software Suite with Autodesk Inventor software for low cost, fast and reliable simulation in computer aided design/engineering (CAD/CAE) and virtual prototyping using FEA.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Thousand Oaks, CA (Apr 16, 2012) –Concurrent Analysis Corporation (CAC), a Southern California-based developer of CAE solutions, today announced the accomplishment of a milestone by achieving certification with Autodesk Inventor 3d mechanical design software for its CAEFEM / Lumino suite of products, which provide finite element analysis (FEA).
"Integrating with a strong 3D CAD platform like Autodesk Inventor for finite element simulation and virtual prototyping using our solutions is a capability we are very happy to provide to our customers” said Dr. Rao Singampalli, the founder and president of CAC. "Our products exploit 64-bit file addressing to manage huge databases exceeding 2GB in size while also supporting 3GB of addressable memory for older 32bit-based operating systems. Modeling real world problems in Inventor and evaluating their design behavior through simulations with no compromises in solution accuracy and execution time makes us stand apart from others," he added.
CAEFEM developed by Concurrent Analysis, is the industry's first finite element solver to be written completely in C/C++ providing linear and nonlinear simulations of mechanical components for static, quasi-static and dynamic loads and heat transfer. CAC also provides interfaces to FEMAP and NASTRAN Bulk Data to make transition to CAEFEM/Lumino smooth and seamless. CAEFEM/Lumino solution supports modeling contact in 3D assemblies as well as 2D problems. API's for immediate new application support and interfaces to third-party tools make customizing and adding new features in CAEFEM/Lumino expedient.
CAEFEM Revision 9.5 includes significant improvements in managing resources so that the simulation problems sizes only limited by hardware resource limitations. Improvements and enhancements have been implemented in API for partners to access CAEFEM database. Support for very large problem sizes and processing of its input has been significantly improved.
"The integration with Autodesk Inventor further enhances our existing strong integrations with CAD platforms. Our API's facilitate integrating CAC's codes to MCAD, EDA, TCAD, ECAD and other CAE environments possible in the shortest development time," said Dr. MP Divakar, CAC's VP of Marketing & Strategy. "We welcome Autodesk Inventor users to try our fully functional product for free up to 30 days and find out how it is superior to the competition in higher productivity at a fraction of the cost," he added.
