Software maker ITI has launched a 64bit version of its SimulationX software.

The German specialist in virtual system engineering said release 3.4 of SimulationX will allow designers to use the full potential of computer operating systems and hardware. The 64bit release will improve simulation performance andallow for greater precision in model building, the company said.

SimulationX version 3.4 comes with an expanded model library and a new “Torsional Vibration Analysis” function. This allows for steady-state simulation of drive systems with combustion engines, electrical machines, gears and typical loads, ITI said. In addition, the software has new interfaces in the mechanics and process control areas.

SimulationX 3.4 features improved CAD import and full support of of the Modelica 3.1 standardized modeling language. The software now supports SolidWorks, in addition to Pro/ENGINEER, another leading CAD/CAM application.

SimulationX is used by hundreds of European industrial companies, including automakers BMW, Volkswagen, Mitsubishi and Daimler.
