Tecplot, Inc., developer of the leading visual data analysis software for engineers and scientists, today announced the general availability of Tecplot 360 2017 Release 2.
Tecplot is committed to improving the power, performance, usability and reliability of its industry-leading flagship data visualization product. Many improvements in Tecplot 360 2017 Release 2 add up to major benefits for Tecplot customers.
Highlights of this release include:
Enhanced Fluent Loader
Tecplot 360’s Fluent loader has improved performance and reduced memory requirements for data with shared grids (typically time-dependent solutions). Fluent Additional Quantities and Variables in symmetry zones can now be loaded. The Fluent variable name map has been updated to give more variables meaningful names. In a test using a transient solution with 30 time steps of about 1 million data points each, time to first image fell from just over 74 seconds to under 4 seconds (a reduction of 95%), and memory use was cut by 93% (both compared to Tecplot 360 2017 R1).
Expanded PyTecplot APIs
PyTecplot, Tecplot’s Python API, has expanded to cover Interpolate, 2D and 3D vectors, Streamlines, View adjustments, Contour and line legends, 3D orientation axis, Auxiliary data, Node map, face map, and face neighbor information, Solution time for transient data and Slice extraction.
Improved SZL Server Performance
SZL Server, Tecplot’s client-server module, supports two-factor authentication and password authentication for SSH connections. Performance for data sets with a large number of zones has also been improved. In our test involving a 681-million-cell simulation with 81 time steps accessed from Tecplot SZL Server over a SSH-tunneled connection, the time needed to open the file and display all time steps in sequence was cut in half, from 1,737 seconds to 834…
