    Blane,

    If you get this, please let us know if the new CFD package is the really good one - FLOW Sim - or the very limited one they've been including with the Basic/Student version for a while. Ditto for the FEA program.

    Also, do you actually have a program installed on your computer or is it one of those Cloud deals that runs on the internet?

    Thanks.

    I am not sure, but I believe no internet no work.

    The first question I am less sure about but what they are giving is getting better, it now includes a professional version of CAD.

    I plan to go with the new version soon. Looking forward to having the whole suite of part constraints and assemblies in FEA.

    I can't speak to the requirements for laminates. But a vibration analysis can solve very quickly if you have isotropic materials and you use simple 'element' models to represent the structure instead of meshed bricks.
