CFD Software Comparison
I work for a manufacturing company and we will be investing on a CFD software really soon (we just haven't made up our minds). We have been introduced to some softwares by several representatives (ANSYS, FLOW3D, CFDesign and SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation) and at this point we are still wondering which one will provide the best results for our applications. We also don't want to pay extra money for a software that would overkill it. We mostly work with centrifugal pumps and we basically want to improve their performance. I know that all the softwares have their own features but they also have their own price.

At the moment we are using Solidworks Premium, and that's probably why SolidWorks Flow Simulation representatives made us a good deal. But is the software worth it? Should I consider any other CFD program instead? For the quality and cost, which one should i go with?

Thank You,
