Samtech has announced the commercial release of Samcef Field V8, a graphical user interface (GUI) for linear and non-linear structural analysis, multi-body dynamics and multi-physics.

Samcef Field V8 features new functionalities following the evolution of Samcef solvers, as well as improving the performance and efficiency in modelling.

Samcef Field is now interfaced with Capri, a software package developed by Cadnexus.

Its main task is to enable the import of parameterised native CAD models to be used directly in Samcef Field.

As a result, a small change on CAD level can be imported directly on the Samcef Field level without the need to rebuild a new model.

Native formats available include Catia V5-R19, Solidworks 2010, NX-7 and Pro Engineer Wildfire 5.

Data input directly on mesh has been largely improved (ease of support selection).

Parts and super elements handling and connectivity have also been enhanced.

Several features have been added to post processing and model files (.sfield) handling has been improved.

Keyboard shortcuts have been defined for several key features of Samcef Field, which is said to result in an improvement of software ergonomics.

Having all modules driven by the same interface enables users to perform different tasks in the same environment and gain time and efficiency.
