Autodesk, Inc. has increased the performance of the latest release of Autodesk Moldflow Insight 2010, part of its software suite for plastics injection molding, by leveraging GPU technology from NVIDIA Corporation.
Part of the Autodesk solution for digital prototyping, Autodesk Moldflow software simulates the injection molding process to predict the flow behavior of plastic, allowing customers to help simulate and optimize their plastic parts and associated molds. Moldflow 2010 is the first plastic injection molding software in the computer aided engineering (CAE) market to leverage the NVIDIA CUDA parallel processing architecture of the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4800 and Quadro FX 5800 GPUs.
The CUDA architecture enables the distribution of a computational workload across the GPU’s hundreds of processor cores, resulting in the capability to deliver a high level of graphics realism at faster speeds. This increase allows CAE analysts and engineers to create and analyze more design variations in less time.
