CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 25, 2010 — Blue Ridge Numerics, Inc., the leader in upfront CFD software, today announced that Autodesk has officially certified CFdesign 2010 as an Inventor 2011 integrated application. The Inventor 2011 enhancements, coupled with the design study environment feature already found in CFdesign 2010, give the engineer incredible power and speed in making insightful design decisions based on fluid flow and heat transfer simulations.
The inclusion of Fusion direct modeling within Inventor 2011 gives CFdesign users greater flexibility when making design changes. Fusion gives users the ability to edit and create parts and assemblies in a history free modeling environment. In addition, enhancements to Inventor 2011 Shrinkwrap provide the perfect matchup to CFdesign by providing highly efficient model preparation for simulation. Shrinkwraps are fully associative to production models providing for even greater gains in efficiency.
CFdesign is launched from Inventor 2011 using the design study manager, and the native model along with its associative information is opened within the CFdesign design study environment.
“Autodesk Inventor and CFdesign users that move to Inventor 2011 will find themselves working in their familiar Inventor CAD environment, yet having tremendous power to easily run fluid flow and heat transfer simulations,” says Derrek Cooper, CFdesign Product Manager, “CFdesign enables engineers to create and compare multiple designs and scenarios to make important “what if” design decisions early in the development process where the value of true upfront computational fluid dynamic (CFD) software is greatest.”
