News Blue Ridge Numerics, Inc., a global innovator of Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer Simulation software, today announced that it has been chosen as a Preferred Industry Partner by Autodesk, Inc., the leader in 2D and 3D design software for the manufacturing, building and construction, and media and entertainment markets.

Blue Ridge Numerics has enjoyed a longstanding partnership with Autodesk in both the industrial and educational markets. In 2002 the company launched CFdesign for Inventor, the first CFD software to use native Autodesk Inventor assemblies for associative design studies.

Today CFdesign extends the Digital Prototyping capability of Autodesk Inventor software by creating a 3D digital flow bench, thermal test rig, and wind tunnel on the engineering desktop. In this environment engineers can readily see aspects of product performance not available from traditional, expensive and time-consuming physical testing methods. This integrated digital solution helps companies achieve a more predictable process to develop breakthrough products, win more customers, assure quality, and protect margins.

“Autodesk is a great partner of Blue Ridge Numerics and we continue to see a very aggressive adoption rate of CFdesign within the Autodesk Inventor customer base”, stated Blue Ridge President Ed Williams. “It is truly rewarding to see teams and divisions within best-in-class companies such as Danfoss, Nestle, Parker, and Siemens optimizing new product performance upfront in their design processes when the cost of change is lowest and the impact on profitability is greatest.”

"We’re proud to be working closely with an industry leader like Blue Ridge Numerics," said Jim Quanci, director of the Autodesk Developer Network. “Together with our partners, Autodesk is committed to developing solutions that help customers experience their designs before they’re real. Partners like Blue Ridge Numerics are central to achieving this goal."

The Autodesk Preferred Industry Partner program delivers tightly integrated, industry-specific software solutions that leverage the power of Autodesk’s 3D modeling and simulation technologies to help create a competitive advantage for customers. Members of the Autodesk Preferred Industry Partner program are market-leading software companies that Autodesk is working closely with to provide customers the breadth and quality of tools they need to make the move from 2D design and drafting to 3D modeling and simulation.
