SimScale 50000 users

In January of this year, we announced that SimScale reached the milestone of 10,000 users. Now, just nine months later, we are happy to welcome an additional 40,000 users to SimScale!

It’s really exciting for us to see that 50,000 professionals from all over the world are using our cloud-based platform for their simulation needs. Working in more than 15 different industries, from architecture, HVAC and industrial equipment to energy, consumer goods or automotive, our users are performing structural mechanics (FEM), fluid dynamics (CFD), and thermodynamics 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 consistently improving and adding new functionality to the SimScale platform, aiming to reach our ultimate goal of bringing 3D engineering simulation to every engineer in the world!

Passing the 50,000 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, limiting the potential of 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 five founders: David Heiny, Vincenz Dölle, Johannes Probst, Alexander Fisher, and Anatol Dammer, who have come from backgrounds in mechanical engineering, computer science and mathematics. They were driven by the idea to create a platform that renews the way computer-aided engineering is done and make it available to a broader range of users. Following an initial beta phase, the SimScale platform was officially launched to the public in the second half of 2013. Today, SimScale integrates numerous simulation tools including fluid mechanics, structural mechanics, and thermodynamics in one user interface, and our team now consists of over 40 employees from 17 different nationalities.
