Future Facilities launches 16th release of its CFD and digital twin software, 6SigmaDCX

The updates will deliver improved performance, accuracy, and speed to support a broad range of data center teams in decision making and achieving sustainable success.

The new 6SigmaDCX offers a range of features to enhance data center design and operations as highly requested by customers.

The key design highlights include:

· Enhanced View developments which enable users to showcase photorealistic results in

reports and facilitate animation creation

· Improvements to the 1D Flow Network to ensure fast, detailed thermal flow analysis

of the liquid and air flow routes

· New result views and object configurations, such as Isosurfaces, which deliver innovative

ways to visualize external models and empower risk analysis at any stage of design

· The ability to import BIM models directly into 6SigmaDCX for faster model creation

· Performance improvements, namely Future Facilities’ new back tracing method, ensuring

solar radiation calculations solve up to 30 times faster

While operations improvements include:

· Improved, customizable dashboards and charts offering new insights and opportunities

for team communication and collaboration

· Possibility of viewing 6SigmaRoom simulation reports within 6SigmaAccess so less time

is spent moving between toolsets

· New views, editable objects, and automations to enhance power analysis and configuration


· Simplified model upkeep with new CAD import and exports, as well as user interface


· New automations, including creating, uploading, and solving a model and querying results,

through the command line using 6SigmaCommander

Thanks to these new features, 6SigmaDCX can better support a wide range of industry sectors. For example, colocation data centers are empowered to operate confidently, optimize capacity utilization, and mitigate risk. Enterprise

data centers get a consolidated view of the information they care most about to enable decision making. Data center consultants can meet project timelines with ease thanks to the accelerated model build and design process. And vendors can focus on perfecting

thermal design with equipment analysis simplified through integrations and intelligent objects.

Commenting on the new release, Mark Fenton, Product Manager at Future Facilities, said, “The aspirational goal for Release 16 was to deliver software that satisfied the want of our customers.

We collaborated with users across all sectors to dig into the features that would make a difference in their day-to-day lives, whether that meant easier model builds, quicker solution times, automated and customizable reporting, or just the good feeling you

get from using great software.”

“Thanks to the dedicated input from our customers and partners around the globe, Release 16 delivers on this promise.”
