SIMSOLID Cloud Browser-based Structural Analysis App Released

SIMSOLID Cloud Browser-based Structural Analysis App Released

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Canada, Feb 7, 2018 – SIMSOLID Corporation is proud to announce the general availability of SIMSOLID Cloud.

SIMSOLID 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.




SIMSOLID Cloud is an all new browser-based structural analysis application. Available in the Onshape App Store, it uses Onshape’s single sign-on and runs completely within an Onshape Document tab. With SIMSOLID Cloud, you never have to leave the familiar Onshape environment. All modeling, analysis and results visualization are completely embedded.

SIMSOLID Cloud offers structural static and modal vibration analyses. It comes with an integrated material properties library. Both individual parts and assemblies can be analyzed and parts can be either mesh or CAD solids based.

SIMSOLID Cloud comes with unique design study capabilities. Design studies are used to collect and quantify design performance variation. Each SIMSOLID project can contain multiple design studies and each study can contain multiple analyses. Best of all, SIMSOLID design studies are associative to Onshape geometry updates. As the geometry evolves, the study can be updated without having to recreate the existing analysis configuration settings.

“We are pleased to announce SIMSOLID Cloud,” said Ken Welch, co-founder and CEO. “Onshape is an ideal cloud partner for us. We are excited to get going.”

“SIMSOLID is an innovative partner,” said Jon Hirschtick, Onshape CEO. “Their meshless FEA approach is truly changing the way design analysis is performed. I think it is fantastic that Onshape users no longer have to simplify geometry before running analysis.”

Selected beta user quotes:

SIMSOLID cloud is a wonderful tool for my Onshape design work. I can make a quick estimate of stresses in my design without hassle.

I absolutely love using SIMSOLID Cloud. It can produce studies of very complex assembly models within a fraction of the time required on other software. Not having to combine parts and simplify geometry for meshing is a huge saving making it much more feasible to run FEA studies more regularly during the design process. SIMSOLID Cloud also provides the ability to update geometry from Onshape without having to redo a study, this is just brilliant!
