IcePro 3.0 is released bringing major enhancements to Fluent's Icepak Thermal Modeling Software

Fluent : 24 April, 2002  (New Product)
Fluent Inc., the world leader in computational fluid dynamics software, announces the release of IcePro 3.0, its Pro/Engineer-to-Icepak interface. The interface builds on its successful integration of CAD software with the thermal modeling software Icepak. 'This release is an advance in the CAD integration paradigm introduced in the previous versions of the interface. By allowing the user to use simplification tools available in Pro/Engineer itself, the time required to get thermal models from CAD systems is reduced dramatically. The philosophy of the integrated Pro/Engineer CAD interface is to take advantage of design engineers' expertise in using Pro/Engineer to define the thermal model,' says Icepak Product Manager, Dr. Rajesh Nair.

The philosophy of the integrated Pro/Engineer CAD interface is to take advantage of design engineers' expertise in using Pro/Engineer to define the thermal model,' says Icepak Product Manager, Dr. Rajesh Nair.

The IcePro user can take advantage of many of Pro/Engineer's CAD and database features, such as single instance exporting of repetitive features. The interface allows the user to load an assembly, and export specific parts or sub-assemblies to Icepak. The export mechanism also allows the user to capture non-geometric information.

New Interface Reduces Transfer Time
IcePro 3.0 contains features that significantly reduce the time to transfer a CAD model from Pro/Engineer to Icepak. Users now have the capability to select fans, openings, vents, and other two-dimensional objects so there is no need to generate virtual surfaces to extract a two dimensional shape(s).

Importing Information Made Easier
A new feature allows for the direct import into Icepak of any material information from the Pro/Engineer model. This eliminates a significant amount of time spent during the model building process of larger systems that can contain hundreds of components and sub-components.

Selection Procedures Improved
Further improvements include an easier selection procedure for cylinders, and enhancements in polygonal block selection. A new list manager utility is provided that allows objects to be tracked easier. The ability to export assembly information from the Pro/Engineer model to Icepak has also been added.

Availability
IcePro 3.0 is now available from Fluent Inc for Windows NT/Windows 2000 platforms only, for Icepak users worldwide for an annual license fee of $2,500. The product will be made available on UNIX platforms at a later date. Visit the Icepak web site (http://www.icepak.com/) and the Fluent web site (http://www.fluent.com/) for a listing of worldwide offices and distributors.
