I noticed you use Solid Works 3D CAD, do they also make the CFD program you use? I've looked at ( well looked up) Autodesk Inventor and ALGOR their CFD program. Hoping I could get a student versions, this stuff is a _little pricey_ and I don't know what I am doing. To give you some idea of "how deep the dive" I am planning is.. I have gotten pretty handy at Delta CAD a low buck 2D cad program similar to Microsoft Paint. : ] Just itch en to learn solid modeling so I can run that though a CFD program. However most of what I know about a wide variety of software was learned by downloading and point and click (what does this do?).
