CFdesign Best Practices

The first requirement for ‘UpFront CFD

CFdesign has a long history of handling complex and large 3D CAD parts and assemblies. However, this is not always an easy task, and can require considerable skill and expertise. With this development focus since 1992, CFdesign users should expect to be able to analyse highly complex assemblies with a minimum of effort.

User interface developed for fluid flow simulation

Since the intuitive CFdesign user interface is identical no matter what CAD system you use, a switch of CAD systems should not reduce your CFdesign productivity. Also, this means that it is possible to use CFdesign with multiple CAD systems within the same organisation.

CAD systems

CFdesign offers true associative integration with the vast majority of 3D CAD systems. This could be:

Autodesk Inventor


I-deas NX

Mechanical Desktop

Pro/ENGINEER and Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire


Solid Edge


Unigraphics NX

If your system is not listed, this does not disqualify you from the benefits CFdesign offers. CFdesign also natively handles ACIS and Parasolid parts and assemblies.
