CFdesign v8.0 Released for Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire
Blue Ridge Numerics is announcing the availability of CFdesign®
v8.0 for PTC® Pro/ENGINEER® Wildfire™ 3.0.
Pro/ENGINEER is a 3D product design solution that helps companies
develop detailed, intuitive and realistic digital product
This new version of CFdesign v8.0 provides a fully parametric fluid flow and heat transfer simulation solution driven and controlled by native Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 3.0 assemblies, allowing mechanical design engineers to make faster, smarter decisions in a collaborative environment before the physical test phase.
"CFdesign for Pro/ENGINEER supports efficient workflow and process", stated Blue Ridge President, Ed Williams. "There are many simulation-driven design initiatives to improve product development but what many engineering executives have yet to realize is that MCAD must drive simulation tools in order for simulation to drive the design process. We think CFdesign v8.0 for Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 3.0 really sets the pace in this area."
CFdesign for Pro/ENGINEER customers will benefit from new capabilities in Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 3.0, including the use of smarter models. A parametric relationship insures that manufacturing process information along with rules and logic embedded into Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 3.0 assembly instructions is never lost or corrupted when used for simulation.
More than 3,000 engineers at more than 500 OEM sites use CFdesign for Pro/ENGINEER, including Applied Biosystems, BAE Systems, Caterpillar, DuPont, Eaton, G.W. Lisk, Hamilton Sundstrand, Honeywell, Intel, KLA-Tencor, Lithonia Lighting, Lockheed Martin, Motorola, Northrop Grumman, and Parker Hannifin.
