About Ciespace Corporation:
Ciespace develops and markets advanced 3D digital modeling and analysis solutions for the aerospace, automotive, industrial, and government markets. The company, founded by Dr. Kenji Shimada, Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, is based on the patented BubbleMesh(tm) technology, a product of more than 18 years of advanced research in the field of 3D digital modeling. BubbleMesh(tm) enables the automated generation of high quality meshes for non-linear, multi-physics, and large-scale engineering analysis, which until now have been developed using costly manual labor. This automation dramatically increases the speed and quality of the engineering design process, for applications ranging from automobile crash simulation to complex fluid dynamic (CFD) and electromagnetic (EM) analysis. Ciespace has offices in Pittsburgh, PA and Chicago, IL.
