Guest Blog by Scott Hale, director, manufacturing solutions with IMAGINiT Technologies:
Hey everyone – Scott Hale here – reporting live from Autodesk University 2013!
The computational fluid dynamics team has been seeing some interesting trends at AU and throughout the CFD industry.
In case you couldn’t make it to #AU2013, here are some highlights:
- There is a strong trend by many manufacturers to increase the testing and simulation being done, prior to any physical prototyping.
- Performance and innovation is more critical than ever in the incredibly competitive markets that many manufacturers are facing. Companies that previously were not spending time on CFD testing, now see it as essential to developing the best design option early and shortening design cycles.
- Lastly, another trend we are seeing is that many customers do not have the expertise or the time required to run quality CFD tests, so our CFD Simulation team has been very busy helping them solve issues in a timely manner.
