News Tecplot, Inc., developer of the leading data visualization and analysis software for engineers and scientists, has announced the general availability of Tecplot 360 EX 2016 Release 1.

For Tecplot 360 EX 2016 Release 1, Tecplot focused on strengthening many of the software’s existing capabilities. The highlights of the new version include easier license management, better support for polyhedral data, improved animation methods, an all-new macro debugger, and greater Mac support.

“While there’s nothing sexy about license management, I think everyone knows it can be a hassle,” Tecplot Product Manager Scott Fowler said. “We’re using new technology called Activation Pro to alleviate that pain for single-user licenses. With Activation Pro, the user’s machine ID and license key are centrally stored, meaning our software will now automate many administrative tasks that previously were done manually by the user.”

Fowler continued, “We’re also proud to announce improvements to our software’s performance with polyhedral data. The CFD community is gravitating to polyhedral element types largely due to their tendency to increase the rate of convergence. We’ve spent considerable time improving our algorithms and rendering to better support polyhedral cells. Many of these algorithms have been made parallel while simultaneously using less memory, which allows our users to visualize and analyze larger data sets, faster. Early benchmarking indicates overall speed improvements of about 25 percent, with some operations being more than two times faster.”

Rounding out the functionality upgrades of the new release are the reintroduction of several animation methods, which are useful for engineers trying to gain insight from extremely large data sets; an all-new macro debugger, which makes it much easier for users to navigate and debug their scripts; and enhanced functionality for the growing number of engineers who use Macs, such as the ability to easily launch a new Tecplot 360 EX window from the Dock or by double-clicking a Tecplot data file.

About Tecplot 360 EX
First released in 2014, Tecplot 360 EX is the most memory-efficient CFD post-processor available for desktop computers, requiring 92% less memory than earlier versions when loading modern high-fidelity CFD solutions. CFD engineers are now able to load and analyze data once reserved for only the largest high-performance computing centers.

The software’s industry-leading speed – both computational and rendering — is achieved through Tecplot’s proprietary SZL technology, which is a combination of deferred data loading, exhaustive parallelization, and many other code optimizations.
