Matereality Version 7 introduces new apps targeted specifically for materials engineers, including a fully updated CAE Modeler suite enabling CAE experts to convert raw material data into material cards for CAE applications; and improved analytics, collaboration and publishing capabilities for materials scientists.
A new Compare module has been introduced to perform comparison analytics on data of any complexity stored within Matereality. The software automatically analyzes a group of selected datasets and instantly provides graphical comparisons of all related properties.
The DataViewer module has been updated with enhanced plotting capabilities. Statistical error banding is now available, which lets users visually gauge the spread of graphical data. Enhanced zoom allows users to examine areas of interest more easily, by setting explicit minimum and maximum values for either plot axis, or by changing either axis to log scale.
The Materials app allows management of materials information, including information about processing, composition, aliases, availability, applications, certifications, and more. The My Material Specifications app allows the creation of material specifications with property targets and ranges, the addition of raw materials to the specification, and the ability to compare a selected material to the specification.
The CAE Modeler app now employs a new software framework for greatly enhanced data processing and visualization. In response to user requests, one new feature is the ability to see the raw data and converted models on adjacent tabs. Users can zoom in on a plot to see a particular area in more detail.
The new technology has been fully implemented in the CAE Modeler for SolidWorks, which now allows selection by study type and processing of all available SolidWorks material models, and is also embedded in Solidworks 2014.
