Visual Toolbox Product

Ceetron Analyzer.

Full-featured cross-solver post-processor and sharing environment for FEA and CFD data, for the sophisticated engineering desktop

Ceetron Analyzer is the outcome of 20 years of accumulated experience from post-processor software development, and its lineage includes the industry workhorse GLview Inova. Which means that we understand what cross-solver, feature completeness, and performance mean for the serious simulation professional.

Yes, it is a post-processor, but also a cloud-based sharing environment, because today’s engineering workflows are collaborative.  Post-process you CAE model; send it to cloud: share it with a colleague, supplier or customer (through a simple URL); and discuss with her on Skype or WebEx as she is post-processing the model using Ceetron Analyzer Cloud.  No file transfers, no firewall issues.  Just security.

Technically, Ceetron Analyzer is a bundle of three separate components: i) Ceetron Analyzer Desktop, a desktop-based CAE post-processor; ii) Ceetron Cloud, a Dropbox-like CAE sharing environment; and iii) as part of Ceetron Cloud, Analyzer Cloud for post-processing in the cloud.

Ceetron Analyzer is licensed on an individual, per named user basis or as a site license.  The full license text can be found here.

ceetron analyzer post-processor for FEA and CFD

Ceetron Analyzer Desktop is a desktop application and can be used on 64-bit Windows, Linux and Mac. If you work with 100% cloud-based engineering workflows, we recommend that you consider Ceetron Analyzer Cloud.

Built for cross-solver use cases and with readers for most / all major CAE file formats

Ceetron Analyzer Desktop has direct import Interfaces to most major CAE systems including, but not limited to: ANSYS, ABAQUS, FEMAP, I-DEAS, MSC.Marc, MSC.Nastran, NE/Nastran, NX Nastran, LS-DYNA, RADIOSS, PAMCRASH, FLUENT and CGNS.

The file readers are kept up to date with new format releases from the CAE vendors. Our commitment to release frequency and competence in reader development ensure that you will, in practice, not run into lack of support for new file format versions.

Python scripting

Sometimes built-in functionality is not sufficient to meet your requirements. As a CAE professional, you may want to create your own functionality according to your own specifications, or to speed up or automate common tasks. Python is the de-facto industry standard scripting language and we have created a Python interface in Ceetron Analyzer Desktop with a well-defined API to support such endeavors.

Sharing, viewing and collaborating in the cloud

Ceetron Analyzer is built for today’s collaborative engineering workflows. Using the One-click sharing, you can share any model directly from Analyzer through its “Send to Cloud” button. You can share the model with your engineering peers, whether in other disciplines, other offices, external service providers, or customers. Ceetron Analyzer One-click sharing can be configured to support public or private cloud infrastructures.

Integration with in-house codes

Integration of Ceetron Analyzer with in-house codes can easily be done in one of two ways:Through Export to the VTF or VTFx format, as done in the following applications:

  • Alsim by IFE
  • CAEFEM by Concurrent Analysis Corporation
  • Fedem by Fedem Technology AS
  • Octopus by Amarcon BV
  • Vista by SINTEF, and
  • WindSim by WindSim AS

or by creating a direct reader in Ceetron Analyzer.
