EnSight 10.1.4a is now available for download
EnSight 10.1.4a has been released. You may download it now.
New or Major Capabilities Added
EnSight 10.1.4a is a bug fix release not focused on adding new capabilities. But there are a few new features listed below.
View can now be set to be normal to the selected part (set view normal to this plane, or normal to this part at that location).
View can now be set to be the maximum or minimum of a variable. The view orientation and normal will be adjusted so that the user is looking at the maximum or minimum location of a variable.
Front Facing/Rear Facing filter. When elements are nearly or exactly overlapping, EnSight can now appropriately display the desired surface in front, and not display the surface behind. This uses the element normal to determine which element should be displayed based on where the user is viewing from.
VR and Parallel Compositing
This is the first version of 10.1 for EnSight VR and EnSight HPC customers who wish to use parallel compositing (PC). Previously these products were known as EnSight DR (VR) and EnSight Gold (HPC).
This version also brings auto distribute for n-face polyhedra elements using Server of Servers (SOS) capability in EnSight HPC. In other words, for really large models which have n-faced polyhedra elements.
Boundary Layer (BL) variable features are also now included in EnSight 10.1 for polyhedra elements.
We have eliminated the binary license log, which was encrypted, and retained only the text license log, and the log file now rotates to a new log file automatically so that it never becomes too large to cause problems.
EnSight also now reads the CONVERGE Input File with a new reader.
This is also the first official release version for EnSight 10.1 in Japan (Japanese manuals, etc.)
Several readers/interfaces have been improved, including these:
Converge Input Files
EnSight Case Gold
LS-Dyna_beta (faster and less memory)
MSC.Marc (new reader replaces “MSC.Marc – Legacy” reader)
Bug Fixes and Minor Changes
See the release notes PDF or Excel spreadsheet (same information) for specific items of interest.
We have also enhanced the license manager so that you can use an environment variable on the client to point to a license server machine instead of needed to use a license file. But after testing this we’d like to announce it and have people use it in 10.1. 4(b) release. Early adopters can try it, but note that if EnSight crashes then the license is not released in this case right away, something the 10.1.4(b) release will fix.
