SimScale Reaches 50000 Users and Growing
In January this year we were announcing that SimScale hit 10.000 users milestone. Now, 9 months later, we are happy to welcome 40.000 additional users to SimScale!
It’s really exciting for us to see that 50.000 professionals from all over the world are using our browser-based platform for their simulation needs. Working in more than 15 different industries, from Construction, HVAC and Industrial Equipment to Energy, Consumer Goods or Automotive, our users are performing Structural Mechanics (FEM), Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Thermodynamics, Acoustics, or Particle analyses to improve their designs.
Three years ago we took up the challenge to build the most accessible, easy to use and cost-effective online simulation platform in the world. Since then, we’ve been improving and adding new functionality to the SimScale platform in our journey to reach the ultimate goal: bringing 3D engineering simulation to every engineer in the world.
Passing the 50000 users milestone is proof that we’re moving in the right direction. We hope that the platform, along with the SimScale forum and the learning resources, will eliminate all the technical, know-how and financial barriers that were until now related to simulation.
We would like to use this opportunity to thank YOU for choosing SimScale. Make sure you stay up to date with all of our announcements, because we plan to keep ourselves busy in the next few months.
How it all started?
SimScale was founded in 2012 in Munich/Germany by 5 founders David, Johannes, Vincenz, Alexander and Anatol, who are coming from the mechanical engineering, computer science and mathematics background. They were driven by the idea to create a platform that renews the way Computer Aided Engineering is done and wanted to make it available to a broader range of users. After the initial beta, SimScale platform was officially launched to the public in the second half of 2013. Today, SimScale integrates numerous simulation tools from Fluid Mechanics, Structural Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Acoustics and Particle Analysis in one user interface and our team consists of over 35 employees from 17 different nationalities.
