Cooperation between Materialise and Fluent results in first release of 3Matic-for-FLUENT

22 November 2006

Materialise has released 3Matic-for-FLUENT, a custom-developed batch geometry preconditioning module. This software is the outcome of the successful collaboration between Materialise and Fluent Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of ANSYS. When combined with the Fluent TGrid 4.0 wrapper technology, 3Matic-for-FLUENT improves the CFD process of geometry to meshed model for a wide range of applications.

Materialise’ 3Matic technology provides powerful geometry conditioning tools that have been used in rapid prototyping (RP) successfully for years. Last year, Materialise and Fluent decided to team up to further develop this triangular meshing technology to meet the specific needs of FLUENT CFD software users. Materialise’ specialised Software Development Services (SDS) team has worked closely together with Fluent on the automation process.

The 3Matic-for-FLUENT software from Materialise is a supplementary conditioning module for converting hundreds of files from mixed geometry sources in native or standard CAD file formats (CATIA, UG, Pro/E, STEP, IGES), or in faceted formats (STL, WRML), into an optimal triangular meshing format for TGrid 4.0 software's new Surface Wrapper. This cleanup process ensures that each CAD part is fully connected, of minimal size, and with sufficient resolution to capture the underlying geometrical details. 3Matic-for-FLUENT supplements TGrid 4.0 by allowing users to work more efficiently during the pre-wrapping phase of their preprocessing efforts.
