Maker Workshop

Improve your DIY Designs with CAE

About this workshop

The SimScale Maker Workshop Series enable students, makers, and hobbyists to learn how to use SimScale’s engineering simulation platform for developing and improving their own products and design ideas.

During three workshop sessions, participants will learn the fundamentals of engineering simulations and will expand their knowledge based on practical exercises.

Every session comes with an optional simulation homework assignment and submitting these will qualify for certification and prizes. There is no prior knowledge or software required to join this workshop series. All participants will get free access to SimScale with all the required simulation features.

Meet your Instructor

Session 1 - Strength Analysis of a Quadcopter Arm

June 9th 2016 4:00 p.m. CET / 10:00 a.m. EST

The first session will introduce you to the world of simulation and convey the necessary basic knowledge.Then you will create your very first simulation and use the results to optimize the structural design of a quadcopter arm.

Join the Discussion

Session 2 - Reducing Frame Vibrations using Modal Simulation

June 16th 2016 4:00 p.m. CET / 10:00 a.m. EST

The second session will introduce you to solid mechanic simulations. Participants will learn about the fundamentals of machine dynamics and create a modal simulation to identify eigenfrequencies and the associated modal displacements of a 3D printer frame.

Join the Discussion

Session 3 - Cooling Flow Though an Electronic Housing

June 23rd 2016 4:00 p.m. CET / 10:00 a.m. EST

During the last session we will talk about fluid flow simulations. Using the example of a self-constructed housing for a Raspberry Pi, we will investigate the cooling flow and the heat transfer between the electronics and air.
