No Simulation CFD button in Revit

Hi, 

I am unable to launch SimulationCFD from within Revit as no SimCFD button appears in Revit. 

 

I have tried the workaround here: http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?siteID=123112&id=19973972&linkID=18154757

 

But there is no .addins file in the folder specified.

 

I am using educational license of SimCFD 2013 and Revit 2013 on windows 7 64 bit. Revit was installed after SimCFD -does that make a difference? The launch button does appear in Inventor.

 

please help as I would like to demonstrate to my students the integration between BIM & CFD

Try running SimCFDconfig.exe (right click and run as admin)

Hi Jon,

Thanks for your reply.


I've tried this and when I get to the dialogue box to select CAD system, all the CAD options except Fusion 2013 are greyed out. Unclicking Fusion 2013 doesn't make them active.

 

It appears have a "student license" which I didn't realize is different from an "educational license" could this be the reason?

Files are now located in the marked solution of this forum post.

 

Maybe you needed to run the CFD install as admin (with a right click) and this folder could not be added? Worth a go possibly although try this first.

Hi Jon,

I am having the same issue, can someone upload the .addin file again or cut and paste the text.  The dropbox link to the ,addin file is dead.  Thanks

Please reference the support center solution on this topic.  There is a download link in the article if you do not have the folder available to you.
