"I got the soul that's got the spark for ya
Holdin' a real hot wire
You got a hungry flame in the dark
And Lord, we gonna cook it with fire"
— "Cook with Fire," Dog & Butterfly, Heart, 1978.
Project Scorch is our free technology preview that helps you perform fire simulations within a structure. Project Scorch uses the National Institute of Standards and Technology Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS) to understand fire behavior within a building, such as smoke development and propagation, sprinkler behavior, and more. Project Scorch is intended as a more efficient and easier-to-use front-end for FDS from simulation setup and results exploration. Is that the case? You tell us.
As a technology preview, Project Scorch was recently extended to May 2, 2016. Recall that we offer technology previews for free. All we ask is that you try them and tell us what you think.
For those who have yet to get in on the action or existing participants who want to get the new build that extends the technology preview:
Thanks to the Autodesk Labs Community that makes technology previews possible. We really are on the fence with these technologies. They are not a lock. If that were the case, we'd go straight to beta. Your experience as expressed by your feedback shapes the future of our technology.
Playing with fire is alive in the lab.
