Webinar: The FieldView Auto Partitioner

One of the key enhancements in FieldView 21 is the new Auto Partitioner module! The Auto Partitioner does a partition on the fly in real time and is currently available for structured grids through the PLOT3D and OVERFLOW readers – and will be active for users with FieldView Parallel 32 license types and above.

Auto Partitioner Resources

How do I know what version of FieldView Parallel I currently have?

With FieldView running, in the main menu, Select Help > FieldView Licensing. In the upper right-hand corner of the window, you’ll see Current license information with the Parallel version of your software. You’ll also see the expiration date and your license number, which is helpful when communicating with our support team.
