ITEC 2019: CM Labs Releases Latest Vortex Studio

One key element of the latest version of Vortex Studio is what the company refers to as ‘Solver Enhancements’ that are designed to enhance performance and reduce development time.

‘The new solver produces significant improvements to simulations; in some cases, we’re seeing a 50% reduction in processing time,’ explained Marc-Alexandre Vezina, CM Labs’ product manager for Vortex Studio. ‘Users will notice this in large scenes with many rigid bodies. For example, in a port with hundreds of simulated shipping containers, you can dedicate computing resources to keeping vehicles running smoothly without the slowdowns typically caused by complex scene interactions.’

Another benefit from the solver solution is a reduction in system memory that leads to improved dynamics performance. Improvements have also been made to the product’s sensor library.
