Engineous Software Joins VCTI’s Distributor Network
Through the partnership between Engineous and Visual Collaboration Technologies Inc., the companies have created a VCollab component for iSIGHT-FD software. VCollab is used to automatically create a compressed visual record of the CAE results generated from an integrated iSIGHT-FD simulation run. This capability allows the user to connect design exploration results - from design-of-experiment (DOE), multi-objective trade-off analysis and multidisciplinary optimization - with the corresponding visual 3D data.
Shown here are visual results of a DOE run in iSIGHT-FD of an instrument panel cross-car beam design. The VCollab image generated (top right) displays the color contours of displacement during vibration. Users can visualize and manipulate the 3D image to understand how changes in the design affect displacement at various stages or to compare multiple results at the end of the simulation run. The resulting VCollab visual records can be readily published to a PLM system or viewed with Microsoft Office products or an Internet browser. 

Cary, N.C., USA, 
Engineous Software, provider of award-winning integration, automation and design optimization software and related services, announced today their partnership with Visual Collaboration Technologies, Inc. (VCTI). Through the agreement, Engineous and VCTI will integrate their technologies to bring VCTI’s common visualization platform, VCollab, into Engineous’ iSIGHT-FD multi-disciplinary design exploration system. Engineous has also joined VCTI’s distributor network as a value added reseller (VAR) to deliver the joint solution.
"We are pleased that Engineous Software has joined our worldwide distributor network as a value added reseller,” said Prasad Mandava, CEO and President of Visual Collaboration Technologies, Inc. “The integration of VCollab's 3D visualization capability and Engineous' iSIGHT-FD provides our customers with exciting possibilities for automating the CAE workflow and for handling large CAE results files, by automatically creating highly compressed 3D visual VCollab files from large multi-discipline analyses result files. The output will be 3D embedded decision making reports, for more effective design evaluation."
"Engineous has partnered with a number of vendors to seamlessly integrate their software with iSIGHT-FD. The open integration framework we provide allows us to deliver solutions that our customers are missing, such as a common visualization platform to view CAE results,” said Dr. Alex Van der Velden, VP, Engineering for Engineous Software. "The combination of iSIGHT-FD multi-disciplinary design exploration and the VCollab lightweight visualization capabilities will offer customers greater value through more successful decision making.”
