Abstract

In the manufacturing industries, viewing CAE analysis results is frequently required during the product development process for design verification. CAE data which include all related information of an analysis is, however, not efficiently shared among designers because CAE data size is in general large to deal with. In order to increase collaboration among designers this paper introduces the development of a CAE visualization system based on JT format exploiting for a large model visualization with a scene graph-based toolkit. Since CAE analysis results and JT format have different structure we developed a translator to convert the CAE result in binary format to the JT format. To show the effectiveness of JT format in showing the CAE result we also developed a prototype viewer offering basic functions provided by commercial systems. By using JT format we are able not only to reduce the size of analysis results, but to store a series of analysis results with several LOD in a data file.
