Startups now have the ability to use 3D engineering simulation without breaking the bank through the SimScale for Startups Program. At SimScale, we aim to help startup companies use simulation to make their designs reality by helping them develop their products better, faster and cheaper than was ever possible with traditional product development.
Computer-aided engineering (CAE) software often requires a very significant upfront commitment of thirty to fifty thousand dollars, which is usually way beyond the budget of most startups. With the SimScale for Startups Program, eligible companies receive full access to the SimScale simulation platform, along with one-on-one support for a complimentary startup kickoff project from a SimScale consultant, and ongoing professional support from the SimScale team.
Additionally, startups will receive SimScale Professional Training, which provides hands-on learning that helps new users get up and running and optimize the technology on their projects as quickly as possible. The kickoff project and professional training is a value of €2,000, but that is waived for startups that sign a one-year contract.

Deliver projects more quickly to clients, with the added potential to increase their revenue from additional new business projects.
Access skills and training for engineers and designers on CAE software, enhancing the capabilities of small businesses.
Many startups are already working with the SimScale simulation platform. Here are just a few:
FRED Consultancy: an engineering consulting firm in Wetteren, Belgium that provides creative engineering support to companies developing all kinds of products. They perform research, feasibility studies, concept generation and physics calculations, as well as simulations (structural, fluid dynamics, thermodynamics) using the SimScale platform for rapid prototyping.
Custom Machines: an engineering design consultancy in Ballarat, Australia, that specializes in machine design for a broad range of industries, including mining, rolling stock, confectionery, agriculture and manufacturing. For a recent project, the SimScale platform was used to optimize the design of a custom-made load cell.
SimScale is also planning new features that will help users share their projects and interact with each other. The SimScale Projects Library is a repository for users to look at projects that have already been published, copy and use them as templates for their own simulations.
SimScale now has more than 100,000 users (update 2018) that are simulating online. Join them! Sign up and get started simulating on SimScale!
Engineering simulation is now available not just for the largest companies, but for startups, at an affordable price.
