Blue Ridge Numerics Launches CFdesign V9 for Autodesk Inventor 2008

Integrated Digital Prototyping Solution for Design Engineers Facing Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer Challenges

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 20, 2007 --Blue Ridge Numerics is officially releasing CFdesign® upfront CFD software for Autodesk Inventor 2008.

As an integrated and fully associative extension of Inventor 2008, CFdesign is an interactive 3D flow bench and thermal test rig providing engineers with the total product performance picture without the time and expense of building and testing physical prototypes. The ability to conduct extensive trade-off studies upfront in the process leads to substantial downstream benefits including increased quality and innovation while reducing time-to-market, Cost of Goods Sold (COGS), and warranty exposure.

Geometry changes made within Inventor 2008 are automatically reflected in CFdesign without any translation or conversion process, eliminating the time-consuming and confusing process of creating and managing multiple geometry models during a project lifecycle. With CFdesign there is always only one product model, and it is updated and managed within the Inventor 2008 environment.

"Inventor 2008 makes it easier than ever for customers to add the power of 3D design to existing 2D design processes," stated Blue Ridge president Ed Williams. "CFdesign is an extremely valuable digital prototyping platform for companies planning to use Inventor 2008 to design machinery, electronics enclosures, pumps, valves, and any kind of flow control device."
