Santa’s (Belated) VR Christmas Gift Guide, for the Serious CAE Professional

I must admit I stole the title of this blog post from Steven Rosenbaum, in a Forbes’ tech article, see http://www.forbes.com/sites/stevenrosenbaum/2016/11/29/santas-vr-christmas-gift-guide/. Though his article is about consumer VR, I think he is in full alignment with most CAE industry analysts when he makes the observation that “various [technology] prognosticators have proclaimed that 2016 will be… Read More

34th CADFEM ANSYS Simulation Conference: trip report and reflections on the innovation processes of smaller German CAE software companies and on remote visualization

Security architectures for cloud-based CAE and SPDM offerings, an interview with Ceetron’s CTO Fredrik Viken

The benefits of CAE in the cloud appear clear (see the blog post https://ceetronblog.com/2015/12/14/cae-in-the-cloud/  for an overview, from a Ceetron perspective). Ceetron is committed to a strategy of making 3D visualization in the cloud as efficient and immersive as it is on any desktop. Major CAE tool vendors like Simulia, Autodesk, Siemens, ANSYS, and others… Read More

The future of reporting CFD and FEA simulation results in engineering organizations, a perspective from the trenches

Some days ago, we released Ceetron Report Component (CRC), a tool for ISVs who create end user software for the CAE community. CRC’s goal is simple; it lets end users create engineering reports directly in the formats of MS Word or MS PowerPoint. But the need for such a tool illuminates some interesting trends in… Read More

The future of visualization solutions for HPC and HPC-based visualization, in CAE space

Over the last few weeks, I have been involved in discussion with various external parties about Ceetron’s visualization solutions and how they can be applied in the HPC world.  I thought it could be interesting to explore this issue in more depth, with some assistance from my colleague Andres Rodriguez-Villa. Ceetron has for many years… Read More
