http://www.symscape.com/newsletters/september-2016-amazing-cfd
<p>Let us start this month's news with something amazing, did you know that Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) can solve mazes? Read all about it in the Amazing CFD article. Also for your reading pleasure we have advice on how to squeeze that final 20% performance out of your design and why you should never settle for facets as the basis for your geometry.</p>

http://www.symscape.com/blog/in-search-of-the-remaining-20-in-the-pareto-80-20-rule
<p><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pareto_analysis">Pareto analysis</a> usually reveals a golden 80-20 rule for squeezing performance out of things. In other words - it means the majority of the performance (80%) is typically governed by a minority (20%) of factors. Pareto analysis applies equally across many disciplines from sports (<a href="http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-34247629">marginal gains anyone?</a>) to product design.</p>

http://www.symscape.com/newsletters/august-2016-cfd-gone-bad-and-aero-at-the-tour-de-france
<p>I'll save you some time and say right here, upfront, that there is no link between good Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) gone bad and aerodynamics at the Tour de France (TdF). Except they are featured articles for your reading pleasure in this month's newsletter.</p>

http://www.symscape.com/newsletters/july-2016-full-circle-with-wacky-cfd
<p>Have you ever stopped to think how Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) makes CFD possible? Or have you wondered how easy it is to assess wacky designs with CFD? If you answer in the affirmative to either of these questions then this newsletter will be a direct hit.</p>

http://www.symscape.com/blog/go-full-circle-with-cfd
<p>There is a certain circular symmetry to the process by which you can perform <a href="http://www.symscape.com/computational-fluid-dynamics">Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)</a> simulations on a computer, which is also due in part to CFD.</p>

http://www.symscape.com/newsletters/june-2016-cfd-skills-3d-printing
<p>This month we have a couple of diverse Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) topics for your reading list. Did you know that CFD skills are a hot ticket for many startups? Read more about how CFD is a modern day pick and shovel skill. Also, are you looking for tips on CFD simulation creation? Find out how model preparation for 3D printing can aid your CFD.</p>

http://www.symscape.com/blog/cfd-benefits-from-3d-printing
<p>It turns out that preparing geometry models for 3D printing has a lot of similarities with preparing geometry for <a href="http://www.symscape.com/computational-fluid-dynamics">Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)</a>. Both require <a href="http://www.symscape.com/blog/cfd-flow-volumes-solid-models">watertight non-manifold geometry</a>, otherwise your model will plunge your 3D printer or your CFD software into chaos.</p>

<p>Yet another way to reveal the hidden secrets of your <a href="http://www.symscape.com/computational-fluid-dynamics">Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)</a> simulation is to create a face, usually a plane and often referred to as a cutting plane, to serve as a target for interpolated results.</p>
