The SimScale add-in gives you a seamless workflow for uploading your 3D CAD models from Autodesk® Fusion 360™ directly into the cloud–based SimScale simulation environment (FEA, CFD, Thermodynamics).

General Usage Instructions

After downloading and successfully installing the SimScale add-in into Fusion 360, you will be able to upload the current CAD model to any of your projects on SimScale. To do this, you will have to:

  • Switch to the “Model” perspective inside Autodesk® Fusion 360™.
  • Either click on the SimScale add-in icon in the “Model” panel, or “Launch the SimScale add-in” in the add-in menu.
  • If you are not logged in, you will be asked to do so, and if you don’t have a SimScale account, there is a link in the authentication window which will take you to the sign-up page.
  • After logging in you will be prompted to choose the project on SimScale to which you would like to upload the CAD model.
  • Having selected the project, click on “Upload to project”. Depending on the geometry’s complexity, the upload may take a few minutes.
  • You can safely logout at any point after completing the upload, by clicking on “Logout  from SimScale” in the add-in panel.
  • To continue working with your model, visit and open your project.
