"Now that I know what to hope for
Now that I can see the future
Blow like cyclone my second wind
Blow like typhoon my second wind
Blow like tempest my second wind"
-- Todd Rundgren
Project Falcon is our free technology preview on wind tunnel simulation. It started out as an add-on for Alias but then the team updated it to be a stand-alone application to widen the audience in hopes of getting more feedback. The stand-alone application does not require an CAD software. Anyone with an STL file can play in the wind.
Today Project Falcon has been updated so there is now a version that is an Inventor add-on. This will allow Autodesk Inventor 2013 users to evaluate their designs using wind tunnel simulation without exiting Inventor. Is this handy or what?
You can get it from the Labs site now:
As always, we'd love to hear from you regarding technology previews. It's what the teams are looking for, and frankly, it keeps me employed. You can reach us at:
A technology preview second wind is alive in the lab.
