Welcome to the virtual prototyping in the cloud!

SimScale 3D Online Simulation Software Allows You To Easily Test, Validate & Optimize Your CAD Models Via A Standard Web Browser.

How It Works


Upload a CAD model

Upload a CAD model of the component you want to analyze or copy one of the thousands of publicly available simulation projects as a template for your own simulation set up. See it instantly displayed in 3D and interact with it just as you would with a desktop CAD software.


Set up your analysis

Set up your analysis in the Simulation Designer. The SimScale platform provides capabilities for solid mechanics, fluid dynamics, and thermal simulation. Once you have chosen the analysis type, the project tree will guide you through the complete workflow of the simulation.


Analyze the results

As soon as your simulation is complete, you can access the results on the platform or download them locally. Validate your design decisions early in the design process, identify optimization potential, predict the performance of your product before building the first physical prototype.

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)

The SimScale platform gives you access to sophisticated fluid dynamics simulation capabilities. Depending on the Reynolds number of the fluid flow, laminar or turbulent models can be selected. The solvers support both steady state and transient setups. Single and multiphase flows can be analyzed, in addition to mass transport and advanced modeling concepts.

Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

For your solid mechanics analyses, you can use linear static analysis to maximize your computational efficiency or nonlinear analysis to fully capture the physical behavior of the system. Dynamic, modal, and frequency analyses are also available. All structural mechanics solvers natively support single parts or complete CAD assemblies.

Thermal Analysis

Thermal Analysis

Use SimScale to predict the behavior of your application under the influence of thermal effects. Capture the structural response of a component to thermal loads or use the conjugate heat flow solver to understand the heat flow through adjacent solid and fluid regions.

I loved the fact that I could do what I need to do in a browser. I started working without installing any software. Using any computer I could upload the model and start the analysis. That was the big “wow” moment.
