Among many of the snazzy ideas they put in Autodesk Simulation CFD 2013 is the settings template file. This file stores the settings that you have used on a design study to be brought back quickly into another. This is really nice when importing iPart configurations, where multiple designs studies are lumped into a single file at once. All the settings can be distributed from the template in a single action.
The settings, including material type and boundary conditions, can also be manually imported and exported from one design study to another by way of the options that are accessible in the individual design study’s context menu.
There are a lot more good tips like this coming up in our Autodesk University 2012 class this year, MA2340, A Round Trip Through a Real Life Autodesk Workflow. Come join Scott and I in Las Vegas in November for a great hour and a half.
