Tecplot 360 EX gets you answers faster. It helps you quickly plot and animate your data exactly the way you want. When you work with Tecplot you gain a partner you can trust, offering the fastest and most versatile desktop CFD visualization & analysis tool on the market. You can quickly explore your data and present high-quality images and animations, exactly the way you want – and it’s easy.
With a 183 million cell CFD++ solution, Tecplot 360 EX with SZL technology is 23x faster and uses 93% less RAM than without SZL technology. Performance gains are even larger when compared to earlier versions of Tecplot 360. The data file using the SZL file format is also 70% smaller (11.3Gb down to 3.5Gb) than the equivalent PLT file due to lossless file compression.
Recent upgrades in Tecplot 360 EX help you work faster and more effectively. New interfaces for Mac and Linux are especially appreciated. The quick-macro panel, the macro debugger, right-click context menus, simplified licensing, and the ability to create plots in multiple frames on multiple pages are by no means a complete list.
