Engineering Design, Simulation, and Optimization in the Cloud with Onshape and ESTECO
As components, parts, devices, and products are expected to last longer, perform better, be updated faster, and cost less, engineers are faced with increasingly complex design challenges that were unimaginable only a decade ago.
Many engineering simulation tools were created to support engineers but, unfortunately, the bottlenecks remain: collaboration with distributed teams and customers, scalability needed for speed and accuracy, the wrangling of massive datasets and version management, ease of use, and 24/7 availability from anywhere.
In this webinar, specialists from Onshape, SimScale, and ESTECO present a design-simulate-optimize workflow relying on simulation tools built on the latest cloud computing technology that is currently the only technical platform that can deliver on the promise of liberating engineers from legacy software constraints and hardware limitations.
A real-world case featuring the design optimization of a centrifugal pump is presented.

Application Engineering Manager
Steve is an Application Engineering Manager at SimScale. He has a technical foundation, with a Masters degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Ph.D. in Materials Science. Steve has 7 years of industry-relevant experience from working in aerospace design and engineering simulation.
Partner Success Manager
Aaron attended the University of Nevada, Reno, where he obtained a degree in Mechanical Engineering. After almost 10 years as an application engineer, he found his way to Technical Marketing, which prepared him for his latest role: Partner Success Manager.
Gabriele Degrassi graduated in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Trieste. While getting the degree, he worked for Mangiarotti/Westinghouse in the quality office. Before entering the Engineering and Support Team in ESTECO, where he is currently working, he briefly worked as a structural engineer at ITS studio.
“The SimScale platform has allowed us to develop and test scenarios including ventilation flow paths and understanding the dynamics between building fabric, airtightness, window natural ventilation design, and CO2 concentrations in various utilisation scenarios. The platform has given us quality, visually digestible output to inform decision-making and to compare results against our monitored data from our extensive post-occupancy studies. Working with SimScale has allowed us to study our learning spaces in a way we never have before. It has helped inform us on which design strategies may provide the biggest impact on performance. The visual outputs have real value, not just in terms of informing our decision-making, but potentially in communicating how classrooms can work and feel to clients and stakeholders.”
“When I started with SimScale, I knew from my previous experience how simulations are structured and work, but I had forgotten some details over the years. The great tutorials, documentation, and personal conversations with support have brought me up to date within 2 months of using SimScale. I am now well versed and use SimScale even with smaller problems to confirm my pre-calculations and to quickly compare design studies.”
SimScale is the world’s first cloud-native SaaS engineering simulation platform, giving engineers and designers immediate access to digital prototyping early in the design stage, throughout the entire R&D cycle, and across the entire enterprise. By providing instant access to a single fluid, thermal, and structural simulation tool built on the latest cloud computing technology, SimScale has moved high-fidelity physics simulation technology from a complex and cost-prohibitive desktop application to a user-friendly web application, accessible to any designer and engineer in the world.
