csimsoft Releases Next Generation Pre-Processor, Trelis 14.0

Three New Advanced Meshing Tools

AMERICAN FORK, UTAH, January 4, 2013 - csimsoft, a leading developer of pre-processing tools for CFD and FEA professionals, announced the release of Trelis 14.0, the next generation of its advanced meshing tools. Trelis 14.0 is available in three versions, Trelis FEA, Trelis CFD, and Trelis Pro. Trelis 14.0 is based on the time-proven CUBIT code that has been developed for more than two decades in conjunction with Sandia National Laboratories.

Trelis delivers powerful meshing tools with features that specifically meet the needs of csimsoft's rapidly growing worldwide commercial user base. "Trelis is the result of more than two decades of developing the CUBIT code for meshing complex models," says Randy Morris, csimsoft Managing Director. "In the past, CUBIT had to meet the high demands of Sandia National Laboratories. Now we're focusing on the high-end meshing needs of our commercial customers."

In addition to its ability to generate hexahedral and tetrahedral meshes for large volume assemblies, Trelis 14.0 improves the robust Power Tools and the popular ITEM wizard previously found in CUBIT. Other features include CFD tools for boundary layer meshing, CFD boundary conditions, and improved hybrid meshing; improved support for ANSYS, Fluent, and GAMBIT formats; and improved interval sizing. "These improvements give users better diagnostic and validation tools for ensuring meshable geometry and quality meshes," says Karl Merkley, Director of R&D. "With the improved CFD features, Trelis CFD is a must-have tool for CFD professionals."
