By the way, is there somebody here that already had worked with the Thirdwave program (WWW.THIRDWAVESYS.COM). I would like to make a comparison between CFX and Thirdwave, but i do not have this software nor the license of it.

Thanks for your contribution.

From your description Third wave sounds like a chip formation modelling program. CFX is a CFD software. There's not much in common there from what I can see. No point in comparing an apple to an orange.
