Fluent’s Icepro 4.0 Simplifies CAD to Thermal Model Conversions
Posted Fri February 20, 2004 @09:12AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News Fluent Inc. announces the release of Icepro 4.0. This model clean-up tool for electronics cooling analysis makes it easy to convert any CAD model into an efficient thermal model. Typically, CAD models are too detailed to be thermal modeling-friendly, so this conversion step is necessary and often tedious. Icepro 4.0 uses an intelligent and automated process to clean up CAD files and quickly make them suitable for thermal analysis in Icepak® electronics cooling software.

When it was conceived in 1999, Icepro was a handy model clean-up tool exclusively for Pro/ENGINEER® users. The new version of Icepro has the same name, but is decidedly different. Icepro 4.0, built on Parametric Technology Corporation’s GRANITE™ technology, is CAD-platform independent. This capability allows industry-standard files such as STEP, IGES, or SAT to be imported with the same efficiency as native Pro/ENGINEER files. Furthermore, Icepro 4.0 is now a stand-alone software module, eliminating the requirement to execute it from within Pro/ENGINEER.

Icepro 4.0 is easy to use and remember, thus reducing the users’ learning curve significantly. It imports files quickly and efficiently, automatically ordering each object on a model tree as the data is read into the Icepro module. Users can easily filter out unnecessary objects by name in the model tree. An automatic filtering capability based on object size is provided. Users can further fine-tune the processing by selecting the level of detail in the simplification process for individual CAD object or a group of CAD objects. The resulting Icepak objects can be further processed within Icepro to prepare the model for export to Icepak. The result is the rapid creation of an optimal thermal model that is ready for successful high quality thermal analysis in Icepak.

Pricing and Availability

Icepro 4.0 is now available worldwide through Fluent’s network of offices and distributors for an annual cost of $3,000 per seat.
