New Industry.   New Missions.   New Tools.



Simulations Completed

Fast and Accurate

Full simulations can be set up and run in minutes on your laptop, tablet, or phone. MachUp calculates interactions of lifting surfaces and propellers as well as viscous effects and is orders of magnitude faster than conventional CFD methods. Click here to see how MachUp results compare to full CFD simulations.

Intuitive and Powerful

MachUp was designed specifically for small-aircraft development, and has a very small learning curve. It is the ideal tool for early-stage airframe design, later-stage detail design, aerodynamic research, or classroom instruction. MachUp Pro is a downloadable tool designed for easy integration, unlimited versatility, and streamlined optimization. Interfacing with the object-oriented I/O is very easy and allows for quick integration with Matlab, Python, or Java. Watch a demo.

MachUp 4

Original non-dimensional lifting surface analysis.

Design your drone and find coefficients, stability, trim, stall, etc. of lifting surfaces only.


MachUp 5

Dimensional analysis of lifting surfaces and propellers.

Design your drone, add propellers and motors, specify operating conditions, and get dimensional results.

MachUp Pro

Advanced non-dimensional lifting surface analysis.

Download MachUp and integrate with
Matlab/Python for detailed optimization. Watch a video >>
