Computational Engineering International (CEI) on Tuesday announced the forthcoming release of EnSight Lite, new data visualization software aimed at engineers, scientists and others. EnSight Lite will be priced at $2,500 for a standalone license, or $625 for approved academic institutions.
CEI describes EnSight Lite as delivering “essential features of the company’s EnSight extreme visualization software at half the price.” The software is aimed at small and medium-sized companies, large companies looking to use visualization software more broadly across the enterprise, and schools.
EnSight Lite supports commonly used Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) solvers and ships with more than 60 interfaces to help users analyze hydrocode, crash data, structure information, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and more. It works on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.
EnSight Lite uses the same icon-based interface as the more sophisticated and expensive EnSight package, and includes page layout and reporting, query and plotting capabilities, a well as animation. EnSight Lite data can be used with EnLighten and EnVideo, other packages from CEI that let you share data with non-EnSight users.
Coming this summer, EnSight Lite will be demonstrated at several upcoming events, including the ANSYS Conference in Pittsburgh, Boston’s Abaqus, Dearborn’s LS-Dyna and more.
CEI’s Web site had not been updated with information about EnSight Lite as Macworld posted this article.
