Photo Release -- Exa Releases PowerDELTA 2.0, Integrates PowerCLAY Real-Time
Morphing to Streamline Simulation Model Preparation

BURLINGTON, Mass., Oct. 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Exa^® Corporation
(Nasdaq:EXA), a global innovator of fluids simulation solutions for product
engineering, today announced the release of PowerDELTA^® 2.0, extending Exa's
leadership as a complete simulation solutions provider. In addition to new
functionality, PowerDELTA 2.0 has now integrated Exa's patented PowerCLAY^®
real-time, studio-quality, mesh morphing technology providing a single
simulation mesh preparation platform. Merging Exa's two powerful simulation
preparation products marks a major milestone toward our goal of automating the
model preparation process, giving engineers more time to analyze simulation
results and improve product performance.

PowerDELTA
 Exa PowerDELTA now includes PowerCLAY
 morphing to allow engineers to easily
 produce parametrically driven,
 simulation-ready model variations
 directly within PowerDELTA.

Preparing a model for simulation has traditionally been a long,
labor-intensive process. PowerDELTA significantly automates this process using
a flexible, feature-based, template-driven approach. PowerDELTA 2.0 delivers
new interactive 3D capabilities to rapidly sort and organize thousands of
components — further reducing the amount of manual work required to prepare
models for the automated meshing process.

With the now included PowerCLAY morphing, engineers can easily produce
parametrically driven, simulation-ready model variations directly within
PowerDELTA. This provides the parametric shape modification capabilities
needed for automated optimization and design space exploration. "The typical
process of waiting for updated design iteration CAD models from component
engineering or the design studio can take days or even weeks," said Alexander
Mackenzie, Vice President of Product Management for Exa Corporation. "Morphing
the simulation-ready model offers an alternative process that takes minutes
and allows rapid simulation and analysis of many design alternatives. With
PowerDELTA 2.0, engineering teams can efficiently use simulation to achieve
deep understanding of the tradeoffs between design changes and performance."

"We provide expert engineering services to many of the top U.S. commercial
vehicle manufacturers," remarked Kevin Horrigan, Exa's Director of Application
Engineering for Heavy Vehicles North America. "The team has realized
significant time savings using PowerDELTA and with the PowerCLAY morphing
features now integrated into one powerful application, we have accelerated the
process of design optimization by seamlessly handling meshing and morphing
within the same tool. It has never been faster or easier to get models
simulation-ready."
