Key features

Injection molding simulation

This feature provides the engineers with a heads-up look into the molding process and allows them to test the manufacturability of the part to prevent such common issues as sink marks, air entrapments, warpage, shrinkage, and weld lines.

Non-linear static stress simulation

Non-linear static stress simulation allows the user to stimulate and quickly produce the result of complex nonlinear boundary conditions, like large deformation, motion, contact, and load change.

Event simulation

This study type examines how time-dependent non-linear loads, such as collisions or accelerations, influence the part performance. It predicts the model’s behavior from drop tests, ballistics impacts, or compliant and flexible structures, like living hinges and snap closures.

Thermal steady state simulation

Thermal steady state simulation offers the opportunity to test the thermal management of the model and its ability to absorb, deflect, or shed thermal energy through conduction, reflection, and radiation.

Modal frequencies simulation

This study shows how the product can be affected by natural free vibrations. This will help realize if your 3D model design needs to be modified.

Structural buckling simulation

This analysis helps determine the critical buckling multiplier to prevent structural failure. 

Thermal stress simulation

You can simulate your model’s behavior under the temperature-induced stresses and determine the critical values at which the design can deform.

Shape optimization

This feature allows you to determine the final shape of the model and make it as lightweight as possible. You only need to specify certain conditions, such as weight and material type, to identify and remove the excessive material from your product.

Workflows

Simulations use a mathematical representation of a physical system. The simulation workflow consists of the following steps:

  • Create or import a part or assembly into Fusion 360 for analysis.
  • Switch to the Simulation workspace and select a study type.
  • Modify the study settings.
  • Simplify or otherwise modify the model specifically for simulation purposes.
  • Define material properties.
  • Apply boundary conditions (loads, supports), define contact conditions, and mesh.
  • Add Point Mass (Manual) loads to simulate the weight of components not included in the model.
  • Automatically replace bodies in the model with equivalent Point Mass (Auto) loads to simplify your analyses.
  • Solve the mathematical representation of your design.
  • Review the results.

 

Applications

The Fusion 360 Simulation Extension is a powerful instrument for designers and engineers that allows for ultimate product testing in real-life conditions. It provides the opportunity to examine the model performance at the development stage, thus preventing possible manufacturing failures and reducing development and production costs.
