Exa announced the release of PowerDELTA 1.7, the latest version of its mesh preparation software solution. This release offers support for the JT file format, improves import speed, and provides real-time graphics performance for large production models as well as a number of usability improvements.
"With the increasing popularity of JT as a neutral CAD data format, we are pleased to now offer direct import of JT files," said Sai Ram Kandarpa, PowerDELTA product manager. "PowerDELTA not only imports JT parts, but also reads and takes advantage of assembly structures present in the file, further streamlining the mesh preparation process."
The new release features improved import performance and memory management; creation of visualization models is five to eight times faster; and 3D viewer operations are real-time for even large models.
User productivity improvements include updated templates that automate the process of preparing PowerFLOW-ready and PowerTHERM-ready meshes with minimal user interaction.
