To upload a CAD file on to the SimScale workbench:
SimScale supports the following CAD formats:
To upload the Solidworks or Autodesk assembly files, please collect all the related part files along with the assembly file (*.SLDASM, *iam) and create a .zip file. Then you can upload this *.zip file using the upload option.
The uploaded file’s extension will be compared to the supported formats, so please make sure your file has the correct format and extension. After uploading the geometry you can display it in the 3D viewer. In case round parts of your geometry appear to have corners, don’t mind: We automatically simplify your geometry for displaying purposes to make sure that you can fluently interact with the model. Internally, especially for the meshing process, SimScale uses your fully features geometry.
In case of upload failure, please contact our support for assistance.
