SimWorks Alternatives

SimWorks is described as 'free CFD software built upon established open-source simulation tools integrated into an intuitive GUI. It supports the entire CFD simulation process: CAD import, pre-processing, meshing, running and fully integrated post-processing' and is an app. There are more than 10 alternatives to SimWorks for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Linux, Mac, Online / Web-based and GNU Octave. The best alternative is OpenFOAM, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like SimWorks are SimScale, COMSOL Multiphysics, KRATOS Multiphysics and CFDTool.
