Design Using Grasshopper and Rhino, Simulate With SimScale
The SimScale API is a powerful feature that allows architecture and engineering firms to add a simulation backend to their existing design workflows, with just a few lines of code. Designers can receive instant and actionable insights on their building or project’s environmental performance, including wind comfort and safety studies, outdoor thermal comfort, indoor air quality, and natural ventilation.
This live demo will showcase common use cases where designers have linked their Grasshopper/Rhino workflows to the SimScale API and will explore how a major engineering firm developed a novel digital wind tunnel app to enable faster and more accurate designs.
We will show you how to deploy simulation capabilities across your organization by integrating our API into your existing CAD and design tools. The SimScale API enables you to:
Attendees will be given an introduction to the SimScale Platform and instructions on how to get started with a new project. Learn more about SimScale’s API capabilities here.
Co-Founder & Product Manager
As one of five co-founders, Anatol started work on the backend and infrastructure of SimScale while studying Computer Science at TU Munich and Georgia Tech. Today, with SimScale being both on a sound technological footing and a successful business, Anatol is the Product Manager for SimScale's API to ensure customers’ needs are understood, addressed, and met.
“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 production-ready SaaS application for simulation. By providing instant access to (CFD) and (FEA) to over 200,000 users, SimScale has moved high-fidelity physics simulation technology from a complex and cost-prohibitive desktop application to a user-friendly cloud application accessible via a subscription-based pricing model.
