Fusion 360 Simulation Extension

Test the manufacturability of designs with structural or thermal simulations and more

Extension

Summary

The Fusion 360 Simulation Extension lets your team analyze performance and manufacturability.

Simulation study types help with understanding how your 3D designs perform under real-life conditions before manufacturing anything.

Explore structural, thermal, and explicit simulation tools, including injection molding, for manufacturing insights.

Benefits

Take a look at why you should consider the Fusion 360 Simulation Extension.

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 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.

Extension Features

Learn about the key technologies included in the Simulation Extension.

Injection Molding Simulation

Identify how part design influences part manufacturability and part quality for plastic injection molded parts.

Non-linear Static Stress

Simulate large deformation, motion, contact, and load change behaviors on nonlinear materials.

Event Simulation
