Autodesk Fusion 360 Simulation Extension

From injection molding to mechanics simulation

What is the Autodesk Fusion 360 Simulation Extension?

With the Autodesk Fusion 360 Simulation Extension, your team can perform performance and manufacturability analysis.

Simulation studies help understand how your 3D designs will perform under real-world conditions before manufacturing.

Explore structural, thermal, and explicit simulation tools, including injection molding simulation, to gain early insights into manufacturing.

Advantages of Fusion 360 Simulation Extension

Access to different types of simulations

Simulate what you need with access to a wide range of advanced finite element method (FEM) simulation capabilities using proven solvers from mature simulation software, such as Moldflow.

CAD models for simulation the easy way

Simplify your simulation CAD models and simulation studies. Compare design changes and revisions without having to export models.

Ensuring the moldability of plastic parts

Recognize and visualize moldability. Predict the quality of injection molded plastic parts. Use design change recommendations to revise your 3D designs.

What are the possibilities offered by the Simulation Extension?

Injection molding simulation

Recognize the impact of part design on the manufacturability and quality of plastic injection molded parts.

Nonlinear static analyses

Simulate significant deformation, motion, contact and load changes in nonlinear materials.

Dynamic analyses

Predict how time-dependent forces affect the performance of a 3D design.

Modal analyses

Check the effects of natural free vibration on your component or assembly to help fine-tune your design.

Thermal stationary state

Trace the heat transfer to determine if your component can fail due to the maximum critical temperature.

Thermomechanical simulations

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

Buckling analyses

Insights like critical buckling factor let you develop and refine designs to prevent structural failure.

Topology optimization

Achieve weight reduction design goals by identifying and removing excess material from your designs.
