For Immediate Release
Hampshire --- September 28, 1999 --- Daat Research Corporation, a leader in
Windows® software for thermal management of electronics,
announced the availability of a direct interface for import of SolidWorks
models to its main product, Coolit.
"Achieving SolidWorks Solution Partner status is a natural progression for Daat," noted Dr. Arik Dvinsky, president and chief technological officer of Daat. "The new interface significantly shortens product time to market through direct transfer of SolidWorks models into Coolit for airflow and thermal analysis."
"SolidWorks is pleased to welcome Daat’s Coolit solution to the Solution Partner program," said Robert McGill, manager of the Partner Program at SolidWorks. "By eliminating the need for IGES or STEP translation, Coolit has created an easy way for SolidWorks customers performing electronic packaging to determine the thermal characteristics of their designs."
The import of the SolidWorks model is available from the "File/Import" SolidWorks menu in Coolit. The import module will then open the desired SolidWorks part or assembly and transfer the geometry to Coolit. The designer can then create a simplified configuration for thermal analysis by suppressing all non-essential detail. This will reduce the size of the resulting thermofluid model and speed up the analysis process. Thermal and fluid properties of materials are specified directly in Coolit.
