2019 has brought many changes for the FieldView team. As you may know, Intelligent Light spun out the FieldView product and FieldView CFD, Inc. is now a separate company dedicated to delivering the same quality products and services that the FieldView user community has come to rely on.

With that commitment in mind, we are delivering yet another yearly release on time. We hope you find that it speeds your work, brings greater clarity to your CFD solutions and does so with improved ease of use.

FieldView 19 brings you:

  • Hybrid Parallelism with Multithreading – Streamline and Curved Vector calculation up to 13x faster than previous versions. Hybrid parallelism combines MPI and Multithread parallel for the best possible performance.
  • "Arrow & Line" display type for Surface Flows – see local direction of the flow more easily with arrows on top of your flow lines.
  • Improved color map selectors with larger menus that are customizable and easy to read.
  • New achromatic colormaps bring clarity through linearly varying luminance.
  • Enhanced boundary clipping helps you focus on the area of greatest interest.
  • Filter Bar on Function Selections help you get to the functions you need quickly.
  • License manager update for greater security. Note: This license manager update is required to run FieldView 19.
  • Scripting, FVX and Python improvements make it easier to do more in batch.
  • Updated readers for Altair ultraFluidX, Altair AcuSolve and Ensight.

For a full list of all the new features and enhancements, check out What's New in FV 19.

FieldView 19 is available for download now at the new FieldView Customer Center at my.fieldviewcfd.com. Your existing user name and log in remain the same, but if you have any trouble getting access, please send an email to support@fieldviewcfd.com.

Introducing FieldView 18

FieldView 18 has arrived! Download it today from our Customer Center or view our What's New in FieldView 18 document.

FieldView 18 adds realistic rendering, reflected environments and unlimited colors to bring your results to life. Increased performance, new data readers and advances in our CFD Data Analytics capabilities make FieldView 18 the fastest, most powerful FieldView ever. ​

Bring CFD to Life

Predefined Materials Provide an Intuitive Materials Selection

Easily apply predefined material properties from the new Materials tab. No need to adjust a long list of light reflection settings. Choose between six predefined reflected environments for a realistic effect that suits your application. Then add a background image to further increase the realistic impact of your scene.

Editable Material Colors - Choose from Over 16 million Colors

Materials like glass and plastic come in various colors in real life. FieldView 18 lets you color your surfaces with a virtually unlimited pallet. Hit the color wheel icon to select from over 16 million colors. Save and reuse your favorites. There is no limit to the number of colors used per session.

Filter Bar for Boundary Types - Easily Group Boundary Conditions by Name

Type a word in the filter bar and the list of Boundary Types automatically updates. Hit Select All, then OK, and the corresponding Boundary Surface gets created. In the same way, Deselect All operates on the filtered list. The Filter Bar supports wildcards and has been designed for performance on 1,000s of entries.

Data Analytics - Intelligent Light Continues to be at the Forefront of Data Analytics Applied to CFD

FieldView 18 comes with new MATLAB/Octave scripts for querying CFD results over time, performing a POD analysis and writing the results to PLOT3D. This allows you to close the loop and visualize modes as Iso Surfaces in FieldView, as shown in this image. Save videos as individual images to run an analysis on the pixels and avoid having to resample your data.
