Rand SIM has a rich and extensive history in the engineering simulation and design spaces. Many members of our team began their careers at Blue Ridge Numerics, the first company to bring CFD technology to the forefront of the product development process. When Autodesk acquired Blue Ridge Numerics in 2011, a group of senior employees founded IDP, a collaborative consulting group helping firms leverage engineering simulation to optimize designs for performance, cost control, and innovation.
In 2012, IMAGINiT Technologies, a division of Rand Worldwide that delivers Autodesk software sales, training, and support, acquired IDP to add CFD and FEA to its service offerings primarily through Autodesk simulation tools. Based on the success of this group, Rand Worldwide formed Rand Simulation to expand its capabilities as an Ansys partner and engineering analysis consultant.
Our commitment to the simulation space is evidenced in our being named Ansys Americas Partner of the year in 2019 and our achieving Elite Channel Partner status in 2021.
