Matereality has released the Databasepro system, with which engineers can organise their material data collection on a private cloud and apply Matereality’s software to help them work with their data.

Databasepro is part of Matereality’s 5.0 software release, combining the power of the company’s patented data storage platform with new engineer-focused software that enhances the user understanding of material data and relieves the tedium of data manipulations for analytics or pre-processing for computer-aided engineering (CAE).

Today, for about USD50 (GBP30) per month, anyone can own a data collection built from pre-approved or certified sources.

Data collections of individual users can be smoothly upgraded for workgroup collaboration with an eventual path towards organising the material data of the enterprise.

The new Databasebuilder allows users to upload data from any source, whether a test instrument, an Excel sheet or even an existing CAE material model file.

Data can be drawn from other certified data sources within Matereality’s Global Data Center; users simply copy data into their own private collections where they can suitably tag it with BOM/project IDs or modify it for their specific use.

Data Loading Wizards guide users to error-free loading.

The Databasebuilder even allows users to reverse-engineer material data from pre-existing CAE material cards, enabling the data to be re-purposed for other CAE.

Matereality’s powerful Dataviewer enables automated visualisation and charting, allowing users to visualise material data of great complexity.

With the Analytics tool, trends and dependencies become immediately apparent.

No more tedious Excel charting is required.

There is instant unit conversion, curve data interrogation and even a one-click export to Excel.

Share and workgroup features enable rich ‘you see what I see’ collaboration for data and CAE models.

The CAEModeler is a pre-processor that draws out relevant data from a database and converts the raw data into CAE material parameter input files.

Users can spend more of their time evaluating the data fit and refining it than on basic input and data transformation.

Material models export seamlessly into partner software and most common material models are supported.

Edits and updates of material models are said to be straightforward and can be saved along with raw data.

The CAEModeler is kept up to date and compatible with current and legacy CAE software versions.

With the 5.0 release, Matereality now provides a complete support framework to assist engineers and enterprises with their material data needs.

Individuals can buy access to the Global Data Center or collect their own material data with Personal Material Databasepro.

Design and development groups can upgrade to Workgroup Material Databasepro, a collaborative private cloud where members access their own data as well as the group’s data.

All workgroup-relevant data is controlled and always available, regardless of vacation or personnel changes.

Renu Gandhi, vice-president of Matereality, said: ‘Engineers and product developers no longer need to use Excel to process and store material properties while they wait for their enterprises to make a material database decision.

‘Constructing a material database is no longer a six-figure budget item.

‘The process is straightforward and there is little maintenance required,’ added Gandhi.
