The Simulation Extension allows you to maximise design performance with simulation.

With the Autodesk Fusion Simulation extension your team can analyse part performance, manufacturability and generative design capabilities. Generative design outcomes can help you to discover weight reduction and performance enhancements. Combine this with simulation study types like structural, thermal and explicit simulations, as well as injection molding to gain a comprehensive understanding of how your 3D design will perform under real-life conditions before manufacturing. The Simulation Extensions allows you to:

  • Shorten your product development time
  • Improve your product’s reliability
  • Expand your design possibilities

Key Capabilities in the Simulation Extension:

  • Nonlinear Static Stress: Simulate large deformation, motion, contact and load change behaviours on nonlinear materials.
  • Structural Buckling: Develop and refine designs to prevent structural failure with insights like the critical buckling multiplier.
  • Event Simulation: Predict how time-dependent forces influence 3D design performance.
  • Modal Frequencies: Inspect the effects of natural, free vibration on your part or assembly to help you fine-tune your design.
  • Injection Moulding: Learn how part design influences part manufacturability and part quality for plastic injection moulded parts.
  • Electronics Cooling: Identify risk of electronic component and part failure due to overheating on your printed circuit board (PCB) assemblies.
  • Generative Design: Explore multiple outcomes that meet your design specification while reducing weight and improving performance.
  • Thermal Simulation: Trace heat transfer and temperature-induced stresses with thermal steady state and thermal stress simulations.
