Release the Kraken!

"Project Simulus" is a new 3D simulation tool from Autodesk Labs, developed under the codename "Kraken".

Project Simulus offers integrated editing functionality thanks to the embedded Inventor Fusion and very intuitive tools for simplification of 3D models for simulation studies. Computing-intensive processing is performed in the cloud. Interactive functions are accompanied with tools for presentation and comparing of simulation results.

The first version of Simulus offers the following simulation capabilities for Inventor, SAT and STEP based models:

  • Linear static stress offering a variety of contact types, loading and constraint options
  • Modal frequencies
  • Steady state thermal offering temperature, heat flux, convection and radiation type loadings
  • Thermal-stress coupling

Project Simulus can be downloaded from Autodesk Labs.
