Inventor of the Month - April 2012

HydroSpin used Autodesk Inventor software to develop a generator that produces energy from the flow of water. (Photo: Business Wire)Autodesk has named Hydospin as the Autodesk Inventor of the Month for April 2012. The company used Autodesk Inventor software and other Autodesk Digital Prototyping tools to develop a micro-generator solution that produces energy from the flow of water inside distribution pipes, saving hundreds of hours of development time and hundreds of thousands of development dollars.

The generators power a wide range of “smart water” devices that monitor the movement and quality of water, along with other parameters, throughout the distribution network. In turn, the devices transmit data that might indicate a leak or a broken pipe, helping to prevent waste of one of the world’s most precious resources.

HydroSpin used Autodesk Inventor software to support the design of its generator - which is similar in appearance to a fan-like turbine - so that it fit precisely within the confines of the Israel national water company’s detailed specifications without disrupting the flow of water. This helped avoid the “head loss” that could cause customers to experience weak water pressure.
