FLOW-3D  delivers high accuracy simulation results faster by using our industry-leading algorithm TruVOF. A pioneering volume of fluid tracking method, TruVOF continues to set the industry standard for flow accuracy since its inception 35 years ago. FLOW-3D is the result of collaborating with the world’s leading scientific, manufacturing and research companies to deliver accurate simulations and an efficient, collaborative workflow.


FLOW-3D employs our innovative meshing method FAVOR™ that dramatically improves problem setup by embedding the geometry directly into the mesh, allowing for rapid parametric adjustments without the labor-intensive remeshing required by other CFD software. Engineers spend their time visualizing, optimizing and collaborating on design concepts with leaner runtimes and more accurate results.


FlowSight provides a powerful and simple method for understanding and sharing simulation results. Results can be compared by viewing both numerical and visual formats, analyzing iso surfaces from all six degrees simultaneously and linking and viewing separate cases together in the same viewport.
