Cooking with ANSYS SpaceClaim - Article - ANSYS Advantage - V11 I2

When Jacobs Analytics started designing a barbecue smoker, it took two weeks using traditional solid modeling to create a single design iteration ready for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation. Since switching to ANSYS SpaceClaim, the company can now edit the design to create a new iteration in only five minutes. After generating and simulating about 500 designs, the design and engineering company finalized a version that offers substantially higher performance than existing smokers.
