Anna, I’m interested to see Simscale can work with Netgen. I have Sketchup for my building design work and there is a free plugin available that can output Gmsh, Netgen, Tetgen and FRGEN3D.
Onshape will probably be fine for some time, my models will be nice and simple.

@arnold1, Onshape works great - especially with the ability to directly import models into SimScale using the app. Wasn’t aware that Sketchup had such an plugin - thanks for sharing that!


#4

Hi @arnold1, are you planning on uploading meshes from the plugin to SimScale for running the analysis? Would be interested in the compatibility to SimScale.


#5

Yes, that’s my plan, I’ll download the plugin and have a play. As soon as I get any kind of mesh I’ll import it as a test. It would be neat to eventually pull volumes out of my models for air con studies etc.
