SIMSOLID, first rolled out in 2015, is a structural modeling and analysis software application that radically democratizes FEA by working directly on imported CAD geometry with no need for the two most time- and labor-intensive aspects of traditional structural analysis tools: CAD geometry simplification, or de-featuring, and finite-element mesh generation.
“Announcing SIMSOLID Cloud: Popular desktop structural analysis tool now available as an Onshape-embedded cloud application”
In February, SIMSOLID Corporation announced the general availability of SIMSOLID Cloud. SIMSOLID’s positioning of the product is that it “continues to set the standard for rapid simulation-driven design. Its innovative core technology eliminates geometry simplification and meshing, the two most time-consuming and expertise-extensive tasks done in traditional FEA. Moreover, SIMSOLID can analyze complex parts and large assemblies not practical with traditional FEA and provides performance feedback in seconds to minutes.” Our firsthand research among early adopters firmly confirms those claims.
