Looking for cheap Thermal Simulation for Rhino

As in the title looking for cheap Thermal Simulation Plugin for Rhino.

Just to do some Heat dissipation with heatsink(one material AL or AU)

Doesn’t have to be plugin.

There’s a nice CFD package for Rhino - it’s a plugin called RhinoCFD and works inside Rhino. Cheap??? Well compared to Autodesk’s application yes. It costs around $2k per year, BUT they have a free learning addition that’s pretty good - only supports a limited grid size and 1000 iterations, but you can re-iterate the same model a few times so for rough stuff it’s quite useful. I use it for airflow analyses, but it does heat transfer as well.
