About SimScale

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.

About iTWO costX

RIB are the makers of iTWO costX estimating software; used around the world in over 90 countries by quantity surveyors, builders, subcontractors and estimators, from companies both large and small. iTWO costX contains our world-leading 2D and 3D/BIM takeoff, integrated workbooks and customisable report writer.

One of the key reasons for the increasing interest in iTWO costX is its ability to work with BIM. As BIM becomes of more and more importance to the construction industry, people need to know that their estimating solution will be able to support them on the BIM projects they receive. iTWO costX has a range of BIM compatible features, including support for Revit BIM files and IFCs, ability to automatically extract quantities or manually measure from the model, ability to add information (such as QS-ID information) to the model, ability to link 2D drawings to the BIM, ability to link BIM takeoffs to phraseologies, and more. In addition, a variety of 2D drawings (scanned, PDF, CAD and more) are supported.

RIB operates from nine offices worldwide, covering 24 hours. For more information on iTWO costX please contact us here.

About Neural Concept Shape

Neural Concept Shape (NCS) is the commercial and industrial implementation of a software package developed at EPFL’s computer vision laboratory over the last 3 years. NCS is the first Deep-Learning software specifically tailored for Computer Assisted Engineering application. Our software allows the engineer to extract maximum value from simulation data, allowing him to explore an infinite number of designs without calling back the expensive simulator and to automatically optimize a shape given a set of performance goals. Our software searches the space of shapes to find this best compromise, while saving the engineer time, energy and economical cost. Neural Concept Shape is a force multiplier that will make it possible to test several orders of magnitude more variations of a given design than is currently possible. This results in far more optimised shapes and potentially, to solutions that a human designer may not have previously considered. One of the main innovation is that Neural Concept Shape is agnostic to the shape parametric representation, as it directly works with the mesh representation of the design. Hence, a single predictor can be trained with a large amount of data, used for various optimisation tasks and becomes more and more powerful over time. The approach can leverage additional historical data from many different sources, without the need of having multiple designs sharing an underlying parametrisation.

  • 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.
