Hello, I think you can do CFD simulation with Butterfly plugin.

Thanks for your kind reply. Do you suggest any helpful tutorials or codes?

:rose:…You can use also Ansys fluent for CFD simulation or Autodesk CFD.

Yes dear I know about Ansys, but I didn’t use yet. Actually I am thinking of optimizing a complicated shapes that why I ask about ladybug tools. I heard that Ansys is not architectural friendly!

Is Autodesk CFD easy to use and validated?

I dont really know… I just hear about it…

Thanks a lot dear Hoda for your kind help. :heart_eyes:

You’re welcome. :heart:. @randa_medhat86

Hello dear
May I ask something, please?
I have ladybug tools 1.1.0 working with rhino 6. But I didn’t find the butterfly plugin inside it. Do you recommend installing the updated version from ladybug tools or installing only the butterfly plugin along with 1.1.0?
Thanks a million

You should also consider looking at Eddy 3D, another CFD program that integrates into Rhino GH
