Following last year’s successful launch of the connector app for Onshape, which allowed our users to have a more seamless workflow between the design and virtual testing phase, we are happy to announce another exciting CAD integration!
SimScale has collaborated with the Autodesk team to launch an add-in that allows all Fusion 360 users to easily upload their 3D CAD models directly to SimScale.
With the help of the add-in, which can be downloaded for free directly from the Autodesk App Store for both Windows and Mac OS, you can create your model on Autodesk Fusion 360. With just a few clicks, you can push your geometry to an existing project on SimScale without having to leave the application or deal with some cumbersome format conversions when saving the file.
When you download and successfully install the SimScale add-in within Fusion 360, you will be able to upload the current CAD model to any of your projects on SimScale. In order to achieve that, you will have to:
For anyone who is interested in learning more about the SimScale add-in and to understand how it works, we will be hosting a dedicated online webinar that will show you how you can improve a skateboard design using Fusion 360 and SimScale together. The webinar will take place on August 31st at 5 p.m. CEST, and you can register for it here. Don’t worry if you won’t be able to join live—we’ll make sure to send you a recording!
Update: The webinar has ended, but you can still watch the recording here.
