Matereality's 6.0 release for CAE modeling features a redesigned user interface with a new applications suite now compatible with mobile devices.
With 6.0, a new Material Model Library app lets users catalog and store their material cards alongside their raw material data. According to the company, the new release encourages users to transition to material databases that provide core value to their product engineering teams.
"In today's analysis-led design (ALD) environment, where major design decisions are based on the outcomes of CAE, using material data of unknown origins has long term consequences. Over the past five years we have seen companies invest in dedicated databases, from our vantage as the source for material data to over 800 manufacturing companies," said Hubert Lobo, who runs both DatapointLabs and Matereality.
GridView lets users navigate their personal database, workgroup database or an entire enterprise database. Data administrators use the Manage app. Test engineers and librarians can use the Load Data app to add material data to their database. With Smart MouseOvers, the user can preview pertinent data including properties, analytics and models before diving into a dataset.
The iPad-ready DataViewer enhances the user experience for visualization of complex material data with instant graphing of digital data, unit conversions and enhanced Excel connectivity, according to the company.
The Matereality cloud today contains over 50,000 experimental datasets on over 8,000 materials. While the content is primarily intended for internal use by corporate design groups, selective sharing is possible to allow collaboration between colleagues or companies cooperating on a development program. Free databases are also exposed, creating pathways to connect design teams to additional material data from pedigreed sources.
