Madison, Wisconsin—December 05, 2018—Convergent Science is pleased to announce a new partnership with Spatial Corp., a pioneer in 3D modeling, 3D visualization, and CAD translation software development toolkits. Going forward, Spatial’s 3D InterOp will be embedded in CONVERGE’s graphical user interface, CONVERGE Studio.
3D InterOp is the industry-leading CAD reader and will enable CONVERGE users to import CAD files directly into CONVERGE Studio, bypassing the current conversion to an intermediary STL file. Importing the geometry directly will allow CONVERGE users to create a triangulated surface that is optimized specifically for CONVERGE. This will eliminate the time-consuming step of cleaning surfaces in either CONVERGE Studio or an independent CAD program. Having native CAD files will also translate to a higher quality of CAD input data than is attainable with current methods.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Spatial,” says Convergent Science Co-Owner and Vice President Keith Richards. “Integrating Spatial’s first-rate software into CONVERGE Studio will streamline the workflow for our users and reduce the time it takes to set up a new simulation.”
“True data interoperability is crucial for effective and efficient fluid analysis, and we are enthusiastic to be in a long-term partnership with Convergent Science,” says Frédéric Jacqmin, Vice-President, Worldwide Business Development Spatial Corp. “We are eager to work with Convergent Science to improve the performance and quality of data import in their software and look forward to helping them bring these benefits to their CONVERGE Studio customers.”
Founded in 1997 in Madison, Wisconsin, Convergent Science is a global leader in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software. Its customers include leading automotive and commercial vehicle manufacturers, tier one suppliers, and professional motorsport teams.
Its flagship product, CONVERGE, is an innovative CFD software with truly autonomous meshing capabilities that eliminate the grid generation bottleneck from the simulation process. CONVERGE is revolutionizing the CFD industry and shifting the paradigm toward predictive CFD.
