Software Description:

SimScale is an engineering simulation platform that is revolutionizing the way engineers, designers, scientists, and students design their products. The cloud-based SimScale platform allows you to virtually test performance, optimize durability or improve the efficiency of your design long before you build a physical prototype. The platform offers an easy-to-use interface with a workflow-based approach for performing various analysis types, especially Finite Element Analysis (FEA), Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), and Thermal Simulation, making it applicable across multiple industries such as AEC (Architecture, Engineering, and Construction), Consumer Goods, Electronics, Energy, Aerospace, Automotive, and more.

By harnessing the power of the cloud for simulation, SimScale eliminates the hurdles that accompany traditional simulation tools: high installation costs, licensing fees, deployment of high-performance computing hardware, and required updates and maintenance. Users always have the latest version of SimScale.

Software Description:

A cloud-based mesh repair service that analyses, validates and repairs most common mesh errors that can occur when preparing a 3D design file for printing. MakePrintable allows novice and intermediate Sketchup users to achieve greater print success by identifying and fixing design flaws before printing a file. Some of these design flaws include non-manifolds, solidity, wall thickness, intersections, and flipped faces.

    Autodesk Fusion 360 - an add-in allows all the Fusion 360 users to easily upload their 3D CAD models directly to the SimScale platform.

  • What are some applications this service is commonly used in tandem with?
  • CAD software applications.

  • What platforms does this service support?
  • SimScale is 100% cloud-based which means it is accessible from a standard web browser from any device

  • What is this service generally used for?
  • The stage when you begin to explore the design space and define your product or system concept is when the most impactful design decisions are made. It is much cheaper to virtually test your product design, system, building, equipment or hardware than to develop a physical prototype and perform field testing. Simulation is one of the tools that play a fundamental role in the early development stages of a product or application, allowing designers and engineers to predict the performance of the final solution, and as a result, reduce the risk of product/system design failure. For the business, this can mean lower production cost, reduced time-to-market, optimized performance, higher efficiency in terms of energy consumption and lower failure risk, making winning new customers easier.

  • Who are the main user groups of this service?
  • SimScale is an integral part of the design validation process for thousands of successful companies worldwide and over 100,000 individual users. It is mainly used by product designers and engineers working in the AEC (Architecture, Engineering & Construction), HVAC (Heating, Ventilation & Air-Conditioning), Consumer Electronics, and Packaging & Containers industries, who use SimScale for testing and optimizing their designs in the early development stages with the help of CFD, FEA, and thermal simulation.
