News Blue Ridge Numerics has announced that CFdesign for Autodesk Inventor will be introduced at this year’s National Design & Engineering show in Chicago, March 18-21.

Visitors to the National Design & Engineering show can see a demonstration of CFdesign and Inventor at the Autodesk Partner Pavilion (booth #6501).

This product marks an interesting turning point within commercial CFD -- integration with a so-called "low end" CAD system. Products such as this help push CFD down the engineering pyramid to the designer level.
