Engineous, VCTI to Create Common Visualization Platform for 3D Simulation

Engineous Software, provider of award-winning integration, automation and design optimization software and related services, announced today their partnership with Visual Collaboration Technologies, Inc. (VCTI). Through the agreement, Engineous and VCTI will integrate their technologies to bring VCTI’s common visualization platform, VCollab, into Engineous’ iSIGHT-FD multi-disciplinary design exploration system. Engineous has also 0joined VCTI’s distributor network as a value added reseller (VAR) to deliver the joint solution.

“We are pleased that Engineous Software has joined our worldwide distributor network as a value added reseller,” said Prasad Mandava, CEO and President of Visual Collaboration Technologies, Inc. “The integration of VCollab’s 3D visualization capability and Engineous’ iSIGHT-FD provides our customers with exciting possibilities for automating the CAE workflow and for handling large CAE results files, by automatically creating highly compressed 3D visual VCollab files from large multi-discipline analyses result files. The output will be 3D embedded decision making reports, for more effective design evaluation.”

“Engineous has partnered with a number of vendors to seamlessly integrate their software with iSIGHT-FD. The open integration framework we provide allows us to deliver solutions that our customers are missing, such as a common visualization platform to view CAE results,” said Dr. Alex Van der Velden, VP, Engineering for Engineous Software. “The combination of iSIGHT-FD multi-disciplinary design exploration and the VCollab lightweight visualization capabilities will offer customers greater value through more successful decision making.”
