Red Cedar Technology is currently creating what it calls an ABAQUS portal with the technology, which will make HEEDS faster and more efficient when working with ABAQUS output files. The company is also developing portals for a variety of other CAE applications and has turned to CEI for a number of interfaces to carry out the project.
“To make certain that users of our own products, such as EnSight, can easily work with a wide variety of file formats, CEI has made a significant investment in developing readers for ABAQUS and a number of other CAE applications,” said Darin McKinnis, CEI’s vice president of marketing and sales. “We’re very pleased with the agreement to license our ABAQUS Reader to Red Cedar Technology, because not only is it a show in confidence in the interfaces we’ve developed, but it allows our technology to serve the greater CAE community in new ways.”
Commenting on Red Cedar Technology’s move to license the interface, CEO Ron Averill said, “We chose to license the ABAQUS Reader and others from CEI because they already have a rather complete set of interfaces to the major CAE codes. Partnering with CEI has made it possible for us to offer a large suite of robust and industry-tested interfaces quickly, without the investment of time and effort that would be required to develop and support them ourselves.”
