Default Feedback on Comet-Works/Star-CD

We're looking at purchasing Comet-Works, or possibly Star-CD. How does everyone think these compare to packages like Fluent or CFDesign? Is Comet-Works easy to learn? Does anyone use Comet with Solidworks, and could you comment on how well that interface works?

We are looking for a package that is fairly easy to use, and could be used easily during the design stage - so good interactions with SolidWorks are pretty important. We like what we have heard about Star-CD so far, especially since we'd like the capability to use some of the more advanced features (like combustion) when we need them.

Thanks for your feedback!

I quite like star-CD the vendors and support seem to be friendly and helpfull and the code is nice to use, the only other code i have used in anger is Phoenics which doesnt even compare, lets just say that Star-CD is to Phoenics what Buckingham palace is to a mud hut in the middle of the desert

I have been a long time user of CFD and have evaluated many CFD codes over the years. I think Metry might need to be updated on the star-cd's latest product range - he may find his statement outdated! Maybe Metry should ask STAR for demo - assuming Metry is a CFD user and not a competitor to STAR, he may be pleasantly surprized!
