'RodTest' simulation project by scampbell


I created a new simulation project called 'RodTest':

Rod Strength

More of my public projects can be found here.


Hi @scampbell,

Are you doing some testing? For a rod analysis, you’ll want to export your model as a STEP file. Or if you are using Onshape, there is a direct import on SimScale - Using Onshape and SimScale for product design.

Then for the mesh type you’ll need a tet-mesh (Fully automatic tet) with a fineness of 2 or 3.

Let me know how it goes and if you have any more questions I’m happy to help.



Hi Anna, Thank you for emailing me. I will give one of those two options a try, Thanks Stephen.
