Five Things to Know about the SimScale Platform

Simulation is easier and more accessible than ever before. If you are an engineer or designer, all you need is a web browser and you are able to start simulating with SimScale.

Five Things to Know about the SimScale Platform

Here are five things that you should know about the SimScale 3D engineering simulation platform:

Powerful simulation technology. The SimScale simulation platform is a web-based interface which combines various open source solvers, pre- and post-processing tools. SimScale supports many simulation types, including solid mechanics, fluid dynamics, acoustics, thermal and particle simulations, among others.

Accessible, efficient and scalable. SimScale shortens the product development cycle by helping engineers to develop and test their products in less time. The workflow on the platform starts with the upload of a CAD model. Since the data intensive work steps like mesh creation and solving are performed online, the user does not have to download those large data sets. In order to access files and data, once a simulation is started, the actual computation is carried out in large computing centers, so the user can log off, and check back later on the results. The access to scalable computing power enables more powerful simulations than one’s own hardware and budget would otherwise allow.

More than 40,000 engineers from many industries are using SimScale. More than 40,000 engineers from 190 countries are already using our 3D engineering simulation platform. Our users are from a variety of industries, including automotive, plant engineering, machinery, construction and consumer goods. Our goal is to make 3D engineering simulation accessible to everyone.

Share your simulation projects with others and search for inspiration. Our platform provides a library with more than 150 completed simulation projects. Users can share simulations with the community, complete with process details, tags, a public link and ability to import projects to their own workspace. So you can share simulation projects with colleagues, clients or the SimScale support, as well as sift through many types of simulations for examples of projects that may end up inspiring you!

This has never been done before. SimScale is more than just a website for managing CAD files. Our users can build the mesh, set boundary conditions and run the simulation, all in just their web browser, eliminating the need for major investments in hardware, software and IT support. Our platform enables simulations to be completed without creating production sample prototypes, online, from anywhere.

Tell us about how you are using SimScale! We’d love to hear from you.
