This new version of EnSight will be much easier to use for those who are interested in exploring their data interactively. It will have twice as many functions tied to the computer's mouse buttons; part highlighting to show which parts are selected; and right-click menus preloaded with context-sensitive menus allowing users to post-process and visualize a model using only their mouse.
EnSight 9’s use and integration with Python, an open source computer language, greatly expands the potential customized solutions that CEI can develop to meet customer needs. Python greatly enhances EnSight for advanced, developer-oriented customers. Customers appreciate the value of an open, extensible application where plug-ins, importers, exporters, customized user interfaces, and more can be added with confidence and relative ease.
EnSight 9 will have added support to import CAD files from SolidWorks®, Unigraphics®, and Parasolid®, as well as the ability to export files into JT Open format.

“EnSight 9 is great because of the similarity to EnSight 8, the layout has remained relatively unchanged. New features like right-click, part highlighting, and left mouse selections make it much more interactive. Functions that used to take me 8 steps now take one left or one right mouse click. Everything on the screen is now editable, just select it and change its location or properties,” says Darin McKinnis, vice president of sales and marketing.
