CAD ScalingΒΆ

The first thing to do is to upload the CAD model and prepare it for the analysis.

  • Switch to the Mesh-Creator, make a right click on Geometries and hit the Upload Geometry option
  • Choose the CAD file on your computer that you want to upload
  • The CAD model is instantly shown in 3D

  • This specific CAD model uses another unit but meters, but SimScale expects meters
  • Therefore we will apply a scaling operation with a factor of 0.01 to get it into the right dimension
  • After the scaling operation finishes, we can see the difference in the bounding box length
