It was great to represent Synopsys at the Modelathon 2017. Synopsys was one of the sponsors at the event and provided access to Simpleware – this is a software suite used to process 3D images and convert them into simulation-ready FE/CFD meshes. During the event, I provided participants with advice about the image processing and model generation aspects of the challenges, and ensured that everybody – both new and current Simpleware users alike – were using the software to its full potential. The Modelathon challenges were very well designed and it was interesting to observe the different approaches and creative solutions employed by each team.
