We are proud to announce the release of PreonLab 2.2. It introduces new post-processing and export capabilities that will allow you to get more information out of your simulations. Furthermore, we added a much-requested new type of fluid source and extended the Python interface for more versatile scripting. Finally, PreonLab 2.2 introduces many usability improvements as a direct result of your feedback.
FIFTY2 will be attending the AVL International Simulation Conference 2017. We cordially invite you to join us on June 27-29, 2017 in Graz, Austria. We will be part of the exhibition and we are happy that Daniel Wickert from TU Dresden (Institut für Kraftfahrzeugtechnik) will present the results of a benchmark sponsored by Daimler AG considering “Water path prediction in the automotive industry” that included PreonLab outperforming the competition.
The three day conference will revolve around the latest simulation methodologies applied to key development goals for clean and affordable mobility, such as real-driving emissions, powertrain efficiency, electrification, durability and NVH.

See you in Graz!
We are proud to announce the release of PreonLab 2.1. Some of the most prominent new features are:
- Improved PREON® Solver:: timestep criterion for viscosity forces and stopping criterion for the pressure solver
- Revised Plot Dialog: post-process statistics data before exporting them
- Enhanced Python library preonpy: full access to connections and keyframes
- Full preonpy API documentation: each function and every argument explained
- PreonLabCLI: simulate pre-processed scenes or run Python scripts
- Dynamic pathlines: see how particle traces evolve over time
This is just a small excerpt from the extensive feature list of PreonLab 2.1. Be sure to check the changelog for a complete overview.
We are proud to announce the release of PreonLab 2.0. Some of the most prominent new features are:
- PairwiseForce model for cohesion, adhesion and roughness
(calibrated and validated by the TU Dresden).
- PreonLab boundary handling: with the ‘no gap’ option, the offset between fluid and boundary is eliminated.
- Python library ‘preonpy’: the power of PreonLab at your hands right from your own python scripts.
- Velocity keyframing for even more intuitive and easily accessible rigid kinematics.
- Extended file format support: export your fluid data to the Ensight file format.
This is just a small excerpt from the extensive feature list of PreonLab 2.0. Be sure to check the changelog for a complete overview of the impressive changes.

The Swiss Innovation Forum is the leading innovations congress in Switzerland. We are happy to have a booth at this congress and to present PreonLab and the innovative simulation opportunities that come with our innovations to the Swiss high-tech industry.
Date: November 24, 2017
Location: Congress Center Basel
The international CAE Conference 2016 takes place in Parma, Italy and we are happy to be part of it. The conference is one the leading events focusing on simulation aided engineering and showcases the most important developments in engineering and science. We will be showcasing PreonLab on our booth together with our cooperation partner qpunkt.
Date: October 17. – October 18. 2016
Location: Parma, Italy
PreonLab 1.3 comes with an enriched and optimized feature-set for pre- and post-processing. The improved camera and the extended clipping objects make navigating in the 3d scene much easier. Pre-processing is simplified by resource objects which can hold animations provided in vda file format or manage multiple meshes stored in one file. Furthermore, an alternative sampling method is introduced which is independent of the triangle mesh structure. This prevents leakage for high-poly meshes. Post-processing capabilities are extended by motion-aware pathlines as well as the Preon renderer which now supports wetting and force sensors. Read more “PreonLab 1.3 released”
PreonLab 1.2 comes with an impressive feature set and significant improvements in the physics core of PREON®. Visualization is an important, yet often neglected component of physical simulation. PreonLab 1.2 enables the engineer to create impressive presentations of the simulation results using Preon renderer and the brand new material presets. Version 1.2 additionally features usability improvements, such as a distance measuring tool which comes in handy during scene setup and post-processing.
