Autodesk liberates designers with innovative cloud-based pay-as-you-go simulation

Supplier News
Autodesk Australia  introduces the Autodesk Simulation 360, a comprehensive set of simulation tools delivered securely in the cloud on a pay-as-you-go pricing model.
 
Designed to allow any company to make simulation part of their everyday design and engineering processes, Autodesk Simulation 360 software enables designers, engineers and analysts to more easily predict, optimise and validate the performance of various products.
 
For instance, product designers can test how various ergonomic designs of furniture will accommodate and adapt to differing body types and levels of use well before the piece is ever manufactured. Manufacturers can understand the heat generated by electronic devices, enabling them to design proper cooling to avoid overheating and help prevent costly consumer recalls.
 
Architects and engineers can gain deeper insight into how buildings including plants will perform by simulating air flow to help ensure thermal comfort, analysing environmental effects on bridges and buildings as well as testing the behaviour of structural materials including concrete before anything is ever built.
 
The latest offering to build upon the Autodesk 360 cloud-based platform, Autodesk Simulation 360 performs computationally intensive simulation tasks in the cloud, enabling designers, engineers and analysts to test multiple ‘what if?’ design scenarios in parallel. The computational power of the cloud also eliminates the need for specialised hardware, thereby removing previous limitations and helping to increase productivity.
 
Highlights of Autodesk Simulation 360:

  • Cloud-based toolbox for wide-ranging simulation needs
  • Wide range of cloud-based mechanical, fluid flow, thermal and plastic injection moulding tools
  • Direct geometry exchange
  • Robust meshing tools
  • Extensive material libraries
  • Proven solver technology to improve simulation accuracy in the areas of greatest concern
Robert ‘Buzz’ Kross, senior vice president, Design, Lifecycle and Simulation at Autodesk explains that it is imperative for businesses to understand how their designs will perform before anything gets built. Autodesk Simulation 360 puts powerful simulation capabilities within reach of designers and engineers at virtually every company, giving them the tools they need to better predict, optimise and validate their designs early in the design process.
