FloEFD is the ONLY computational fluid dynamics analysis tool that is truly embedded into major MCAD systems. These include Pro/ENGINEER, CATIA, Siemens NX and SolidWorks; and tight integration with Inventor and SolidEdge. FloEFD is a full-featured 3D fluid flow, heat transfer analysis package that is both fast to learn and to use because it doesn’t come with the numerical complexity and meshing overheads of traditional high-end CFD.

Note: FloEFD FE is a standalone application.. It does not need any CAD to be preinstalled! FloEFD FE 11 is based on SolidWorks 2012 OEM Edition. It's similar to SolidWorks Flow Simulation (SolidWorks Flow Simulation is part of SolidWorks Premium), but has more flow & thermal simulation options than last one.

The award-winning FloEFD is part of a new breed of CFD tools called Concurrent CFD. FloEFD is a full-featured general purpose CFD tool serving the needs of Inventor, Solid Edge, SolidWorks as well as other popular MCAD systems. FloEFD combines all simulation steps - starting with use of your 3D CAD data for model preparation, to mesh generation, solving and results visualization - in one easy-to-use package.

Concurrent CFD can reduce simulation time significantly in comparison to traditional CFD tools and enables users to optimize product performance and reliability while reducing physical prototyping and development costs without time or material penalties.

Unlike other 3rd party CFD programs, FloEFD for Creo, FloEFD for CATIA V5 and FloEFD for NX work directly with native Creo Parametric, native CATIA V5 and native Siemens NX geometry, respectively – with no translation or copies – in order to keep pace with on-going design changes. FloEFD for Creo, FloEFD for CATIA V5 and FloEFD for NX have the same “look and feel” so you can focus on solving your problem instead of learning a new environment.

These versions directly use Creo Parametric and Wildfire, CATIA V5 and Siemens NX geometry and solid model information such as features and parameters to help you simulate your designs in real-world conditions. Direct use of native geometry is an extremely powerful feature since it provides you with functionality that is not easily offered by other CFD programs.

Since you’re using the same exact geometry for CAD and analysis, you maintain one set of data across your product design process, and your analysis is always in tune with your design.
