Is there a way to change the ground plane? I can't seem to choose the direction of the flow other than on the standard ground plane. Im using the falcon add-in for inventor professional 2013.
I'm also wondering about this. Can I move the compass to another plane? The way it is now I can only have wind in the XY-plane and I want to see how wind from the front will affect my model, not from the sides/top/bottom
There is not a way (currently) to re-orient the ground plane relative to the model inside Inventor. It was discussed within the team early on but did not make it into release. Thanks for letting us know there is interest.
For now the options are
1) re-orient the Inventor model. a simple way to do this is creating a new master level assembly model and changing orientation there.
2) use Falcon standalone, which allows you to flip/rotate the geometry by 90deg increments.
I expect there is much more to be added before Falcon makes it to RTM. Changing the model orientation must be one of those features. The ability to change the angle of attack of anything related to aircraft is essential and it must be in at least 0.1 degree increments. This software, if at all reasonably priced, will enjoy a very large following and consequent sales within the RC models community. For that it also will need to be available in the stand alone version. If it is less than $100 I will buy it. I know that many of my friends on a machining forum will too. I have already demonstrated it to them. It's a shame that the beta ends so soon. Many are anxious to try it.
