SolidWorks Flow Simulation

Does anyone know / use SolidWorks Flow Simulation? I would like to know if this software is a good one or not? To begin with, I would like to know if it is using finite volumes of finite elements?

Anyone? Thanks.

It generates nice colors for a customer presentation...;)
Still, great CAD...

So it's not Computational Fluid Dynamics, it's *Color* Fluid Dynamics ;)

But seriously, is it ok or is it known to produce non reliable results? Is it finite volumes or finite elements method?

I wouldnt want to mislead you, so its best to check at systematics's web site.
Still I know for sure about many who were deeply dissapointed from the quality of this analysis tool.

What is Systematics? The software is developed by SolidWorks, I don't get it.
