CFdesign v6 is Certified for Autodesk Inventor 6
Posted Mon March 03, 2003 @09:30AM

News Blue Ridge Numerics Inc., developer of CFdesign® software for fluid flow, heat transfer, and electronics cooling simulation, announces that its latest release of CFdesign, has received certification for Autodesk Inventor® 6 under the Autodesk Inventor Certified Applications Program. Certification is granted to applications that meet standards set by Autodesk to ensure quality, robustness and the highest level of interoperability with Autodesk Inventor 3D mechanical design software.

CFdesign v6.0 focuses on rapid product optimization with new capabilities to enable mainstream product development engineers working on tight deadlines. The speed in which CFdesign v6.0 uses highly complex Autodesk Inventor software assemblies to analyze and qualitatively compare design variations is what sets CFdesign apart from traditional CFD applications. On average, implementing CFdesign can reduce the time it takes to develop, test, and prove a new product design by 70% while reducing the costs associated with staff time and materials by 65%.

Changes made to a component or assembly within Autodesk Inventor software are automatically reflected in CFdesign v6.0, eliminating the time-consuming task of creating and managing multiple geometry models during a project lifecycle. With CFdesign v6.0 there is always only one model and it is updated and managed within Autodesk Inventor software.

Receive a Free Demo CD at Booth #5901

Visitors to the National Design Engineering Show (March 3-6) can see a demonstration of CFdesign and receive a free CFdesign v6.0 demonstration CD in the Autodesk Partner Pavillion, located in Exhibit Hall A on Level 3 of McCormick Place South.
