Geometry preparation with SimStudio ToolsQuickly modify, simplify, repair and idealize your geometry for higher quality simulation models. SimStudio Tools reads in multiple CAD file formats and allows you to quickly simplify assemblies, eliminate unnecessary detail, perform basic repair, or easily make design changes so you can explore various design ideas faster.
CAD connectionLink your CAD system to Autodesk CFD analysis software to create associative fluid flow and thermal simulations. Autodesk CFD connects to virtually any CAD system, allowing you to create fluid flow and thermal simulations of your designs. If you don’t have a 3D CAD system, use SimStudio tools for geometry creation and model editing and simplification.
Automation scriptingImprove your design process—use the flexible Autodesk CFD Application Programming Interface (API) to automate and customize a wide variety of tasks. Automate repetitive tasks normally performed in the user interface. Create custom tasks and custom results quantities. Output results in customized or specialized formats.
High-quality visualizationCombine analysis results from Autodesk CFD with dedicated visualization tools to create photo-realistic renderings. Gain interoperability with Showcase, VRED, 3ds Max, and Maya.
Design Study EnvironmentUse the Design Study Environment for all stages of your design-simulation process. Study design iterations within an intuitive workflow. Drive innovation by providing product teams with data to make informed design decisions.
Intelligent automatic mesh sizingUse geometry and solution-based meshing automation. Meshing technology helps you quickly and efficiently prepare geometry for accurate and repeatable result, with automatic mesh sizing, geometry diagnostics, manual control options over local sizes and refinement regions, and solution-based adaptive sizing.
Flexible cloud solving optionsContinue working locally while you solve in the cloud. Flexible solving options help you to simulate based on your needs. Test the setup of an analysis, and use your local resources to iterate and optimize your setup. To kick off a longer, more computationally intensive simulation, use the power of the cloud and free up your local resources for other tasks.
