New Industry.   New Missions.   New Tools.

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 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.
