SIMSOLID is next generation, high capacity, structural FEA. It uses new computational methods which allow you to solve assemblies with hundreds to thousands of parts directly on your standard desktop computer. SIMSOLID is the perfect complement to Autodesk® Fusion 360™ Nastran Simulation. It extends your analysis range and provides feedback in seconds to minutes.
With SIMSOLID you can:
- ANALYZE ORIGINAL CAD GEOMETRY DIRECTLY – SIMSOLID’s unique technology completely eliminates geometry simplification and meshing, the two most time consuming, expertise extensive and error prone tasks done in traditional FEA. This is especially important on multi-scale assemblies that contains a combination of both thick and thin or big and small parts.
- HANDLE REAL WORLD DESIGN COMPLEXITY – SIMSOLID has been performance tuned to analyze complex parts and large assemblies not practical with traditional FEA and do it efficiently on a desktop class computer. SIMSOLID is tolerant of imprecise geometry. Its assembly connections are industry best at handling ragged contact surfaces with both gaps and overlapping geometry.
- ACCURACY IS BUILT-IN – SIMSOLID controls solution accuracy using smart functions and a unique automatic adaptive process. In contrast to FEA, the adaptivity is driven by absolute measures of approximation errors. In SIMSOLID, adaptivity is not an option, it is always active.
- EVALUATE DESIGN CHANGE – SIMSOLID Design Studies allow you to quickly evaluate and compare the structural performance from different geometric configurations. All analysis definitions update automatically making design iterations fast and painless.
This Add-In provides complete geometry and material property integration between Autodesk Fusion 360 and SIMSOLID. It comes with a free 30-day trial version of SIMSOLID. More information on SIMSOLID can be found at www.simsolid.com.
