"Every new release of Tecplot 360 focuses on helping our users get their work done more productively and with greater ease," said Rich Stillman, president. "This version provides important new capabilities to ANSYS users specifically, but it also delivers important improvements to streamtrace seeding and constrained slices in the cut plane tools.”

Tecplot 360 2012 offers performance improvements and enhancements, including:

  • New ANSYS CFX data loader: Load CFX CFD files directly into Tecplot 360.

  • Faster ANSYS Fluent data loader: Generate index files for Fluent case and data file automatically for faster delivery of an initial plot.

  • Automated streamtrace seeding on surfaces: Select surfaces such as bodies, slices, and iso-surfaces, then automatically seed a specified number of streamtraces for that surface.

  • Constrained slices in cut plane tools: Constrain slices by restricting their range to a user-defined box to bring a region into focus while preventing the surrounding details from being obscured. Also, specify multiple sets of slices with independently positioned constraint ranges.

Platforms and pricing
Tecplot 360 2012 is available for the 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows 7, Vista, and XP; the 64-bit version of Mac 10.6.8 or greater; and major UNIX and Linux platforms. Pricing starts at $4,400 in the U.S. for a single-user perpetual license. Tecplot 360 users with current SMS agreements can upgrade to the latest version at no cost.
