SimScale Develops API and Digital Wind Tunnel Solution for AEC

SimScale | November 11, 2020

SimScale GmbH, the provider of the world’s first production-ready SaaS application for engineering simulation, today announced a major platform development to enable integration and automation with their new application programming interface (API). The feature allows designers, engineers, and computational designers to link their preferred CAD tools directly to the SimScale simulation engine via the API. When designers need to use the power of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to optimize the performance of their designs, the typical workflow is to import a CAD model into the CFD software and run the simulation. This means the simulation process goes from the designer to simulation specialist in a cumbersome process which stifles the iterative design process as well as resulting findings, especially during early design stages. SimScale’s API now allows direct integration with a CAD software stack like Rhino and Grasshopper.

Raken Announces the Segmented Daily Reports Feature to Enhance Its Product Offering

Raken | September 18, 2020

Raken, the top-rated mobile field management solution for the construction industry, today announced the Segmented Daily Reports feature to enhance its product offering. The newly released feature allows field teams to submit multiple daily reports for complex projects, providing better visibility into site progress, improved organization and more streamlined internal communication. Segmented Daily Reports enable users to create multiple daily reports for each building or location and submit timesheets that reflect 24/7 work hours for different crews. Field teams are able to collaborate to provide a full picture of progress by submitting individual reports on a single project. Previously, field management apps limited daily reports to a single submission per day, complicating the documentation of jobsites that require multiple foremen, shifts, locations or phases. Collaborating on a single report has historically been a struggle for field teams, as it requires extra coordination at the end of the day and often results in incomplete and inconsistent reports being shared with stakeholders. With Segmented Daily Reports, crews can submit their own individual reports, on their own time, with greater detail—which are then automatically aggregated into a single document for better visibility in the office.
