      FUSION 360 SIMULATION EXTENSION

      Make better products with the Simulation Extension

      Improve product performance in Fusion 360 with access to an assortment of simulation capabilities including structural, thermal, explicit, and injection molding manufacturability.

      What is the Fusion 360 Simulation Extension?

      The Fusion 360 Simulation Extension is a set of simulation study types to help you investigate if your 3D design can be manufactured or how it may perform under real life conditions before manufacturing anything.

      Analyze the performance and manufacturability of your 3D designs to ensure they will meet the demands of real-world conditions with structural, thermal, and explicit simulation tools.

      The Simulation Extension also includes injection molding simulation studies to help you in gaining plastic injection molding manufacturing insights for your 3D design.

      Benefits of the Fusion 360 Simulation Extension

      • Access diverse simulation capabilities

        Simulate what you need, when you need it with access to a wide range of advanced finite element analysis (FEA) simulation capabilities which utilize trusted solvers from matured simulation software.

      • Uncomplicate simulation CAD models

        Simplify and revise your simulation CAD models and simulation studies to modify and compare design changes without the need to export models.

      • Ensure plastic part moldability

        Detect and visualize moldability and predicted part quality of your injection molded plastic part and benefit from design change recommendations before finalizing your 3D designs.

      • Injection Molding Simulation

        Identify how your part design influences part manufacturability and part quality for plastic injection molded parts through guided results to get an aesthetically acceptable part that will perform as intended.

      • Non-linear Static Stress

        Explore large deformation, motion, contact and load changes, and nonlinear material behavior during an event or an incremental change in loads.

      • Event Simulation

        Predict how time-dependent forces influence 3D design performance.

      • Thermal Steady State

        Trace heat transfer across your part or assembly to understand if your part may fail based on the maximum critical temperature of a component.

      • Modal Frequencies

        Modal Frequencies

        Inspect the effects of natural free-vibration on your part or assembly to help you fine tune your design.

      • Structural Buckling

        Structural Buckling

        Determine the critical buckling multiplier and modal buckling shape from a compression load applied to your structural component to develop a support or stiffening structure to prevent structure failure due to buckling.

      • Thermal Stress

        Thermal Stress

        Simulate temperature-induced stresses caused by temperature gradients in the model and varying thermal expansion characteristics of the materials.

      • Shape Optimization

        Shape Optimization

        Achieve light weight design goals by identifying material can be removed from your design, while still achieving allowable stress and displacement objectives.

      The Fusion 360 Simulation Extension can be accessed using different payment methods to suit your business needs. For flexible access, use pre-purchased cloud credits or tokens to unlock the extension as needed. For ongoing access, subscribe to the extension for 1-month or 1-year.

      Yes, you can access individual simulation studies through pay per use using cloud credits or tokens.

      The Fusion 360 Simulation Extension offers the ability to continue working within the program as your simulations solve, providing more flexibility and time-saving advantage when running several analyses.

      The extension, developed by Autodesk, offers flex access to unlock professional grade tools as and when you need them. By comparison, stand-alone simulation programs tend to be point solutions, intended to provide limited simulation capability. Having access to various simulation studies within your CAD program promotes more insight into the part design while you design it.
