Cadillac Casting explains how they've become successul with Autodesk® CFD.  Eric Seguin, Manufacturing Engineer, from Cadillac Casting tells us why implementing CFD and partnering with Advanced Solutions was the right fit.

Q: What determined the need for Simulation CFD

Eric: "We were interested in CFD modeling for plant HVAC and various fluid systems, that we have in the foundry. We looked at many different solutions and Simulation CFD was the most functional package for the price, we had budgeted."

Q: What did Advanced Solutions do and how did they help you achieve your objectives?

Eric: "Their training and product support has been top notch. I've felt comfortable with the software and its functions ever since we acquired the license."

Q: What benefits have you seen from the CFD software

Eric: "Being able to have a picture of what the fluids are going to do, in a certain situation, is invaluable.  We have used it to properly design dropout boxes, emissions systems, and even placing large pieces of HVAC equipment in the ideal parts of the plant."

Q: Was Advanced Solutions simulation expert helpful?

"Extremely helpful! Nick is very knowledgeable of the nuances of the software and how to approach the CFD design process."

Cadillac Casting chose Autodesk® CFD because of it's functionality and reasonable price. They chose to work with Advanced Solutions because of their effective training options and invaluable support.
