Update history

As of the 2019.f version, CYPE programs (those downloaded from our website and those downloaded from the platform) are compiled for 64-bit systems. The 64-bit compilation of CYPE software implies the use of the superior features of 64-bit processors and operating systems compared to those of 32 bits.

Please bear in mind that you must have a 64-bit operating system to be able to work with any 64-bit software.

In any case and as a temporary measure, the 2019.f version is available in 64 and 32 bits on the download area of our webpage. The programs that can be downloaded from the platform are only available in 64 bits. If you have a 64-bit operating system, you can work with either the 64-bit and 32-bit version of our software, although we strongly recommend that you install the 64-bit CYPE software version.

You can see which operating system is installed on your computer by clicking on "Control panel > System".

Since 64-bit microprocessors began to be massively introduced into personal computers from 2003 and from the Windows XP version, Microsoft already offers the two versions of its operating systems (32 and 64 bits). We understand that almost all our users will have computers with 64-bit processors (x64) and 64-bit operating systems.

It could occur that a user may wish to work with a computer with a 64-bit processor but with a 32-bit operating system. It would be very strange if the computer had a 32-bit processor (x86 - computers over 15 years old). If any of these is your case, we advise you to talk to your hardware or software provider to update your situation as soon as possible. However, you can download the 32-bit version and work with CYPE programs that can be downloaded from our website until your situation is up-to-date.

CYPEFIRE FDS is a free application to view simulations of the evolution of fires carried out using the Fire Dynamics Simulator developed by the NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology, USA).

CYPEFIRE FDS Viewer is integrated into the Open BIM workflow. In order to use the viewer, users must connect to a BIM model located on the platform. If the selected project contains data from the FDS analysis engine, CYPEFIRE FDS Viewer will interpret the values to display the simulation.

To calculate an FDS model and share the results via the platform, the Open BIM fire dynamics simulation application, CYPEFIRE FDS can be used (program that has also been implemented in this version).
