Importing CAD geometry in FlothermThe MCAD Bridge in Simcenter Flotherm 2304 has been enhanced to facilitate seamless data import from an array of additional file formats:

  • Siemens NX
  • Siemens Solid Edge
  • Parasolid
  • JT
  • PLMXML
  • XTXML

Elevated Voxelization Quality and Unprecedented Speed Boost

Engineers can now exercise greater control over the representation of imported geometry, ensuring optimal quality and detail. By adjusting the number of ray directions and adopting improved strategies for handling faceted geometry, the voxelization process is significantly refined. A higher count of ray directions enhances the identification of edges and facets, resulting in a more precise voxelization outcome.

Simcenter Flotherm 2304 introduces a groundbreaking acceleration in voxelization speed, drastically reducing pre-processing times. In demonstrated cases, this advancement has transformed the pre-processing phase from taking hours to minutes or less.

The video comprehensively showcases:

  • Instance Support: Identifying and applying actions to multiple object instances, with the option to replicate effects across all instances or selectively disconnect them as needed.
  • Power Select: Empowering users to locate and select objects based on shared geometric characteristics, such as geometry type (holes, blends, faces, bodies), specified size, or selection scope. This allows for streamlined simplification or conversion of selections in a singular operation.

Dramatically Accelerated Pre-Solve Phase – Up to 10x Speed Increase for Complex Models

Flotherm speed increases graphElectronics cooling simulations frequently involve a high volume of objects due to intricate geometries or complex PCB structures. In cases where models are exceptionally intricate, surpassing 100,000+ objects, like multi-layer PCBs housing components within intricate enclosures, the pre-solve phase can be time-consuming. Simcenter Flotherm 2304 introduces an ingeniously revamped translator phase, meticulously optimized to accommodate the intricate demands of such high-complexity models. The table below illustrates a comparative analysis of load and translation times for diverse models containing hundreds of thousands of objects.
