Autodesk has launched the industry’s first cloud-based, pay-as-you-go simulation offering. Autodesk Simulation 360 provides designers, engineers and analysts with a comprehensive set of tools, delivered securely in the cloud, which includes direct geometry exchange, robust meshing tools, extensive material libraries and proven solver technology to increase simulation accuracy in the areas of greatest concern. The software portfolio also includes a wide range of cloud-based mechanical, fluid flow, thermal and plastic injection moulding tools, all available under the pay-as-you-go pricing model.
‘The ability to run multiple simulation studies in the cloud, at the same time as a typical singular simulation study with single variables, really opens up the game for us by helping us understand much more of the system in a shorter amount of time,’ said Matt Nowicki, senior product engineer at BioLite. ‘It’s impressive how easy, valuable and seamless simulating in the cloud can be for a company such as ours.’
