Simulation Mechanical

Simulation Mechanical

Autodesk® Simulation Mechanical software, powered by the Autodesk® Nastran® solver, accurately predicts product performance, optimizes designs, and validates product behavior before manufacturing. Simulation Mechanical brings Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to all designers, engineers, and analysts to help make great products.

Support for multi-CAD environments, extensive finite element modeling tools, and built-in material libraries help manufacturers study products earlier, more often, and in greater detail. Easily exchange data with most CAD software tools, Autodesk® Simulation Moldflow® plastic injection molding simulation tools, and Autodesk® Vault data management software.


A complete mechanical simulation solution

Autodesk Simulation Mechanical is a stand-alone FEA mechanical simulation solution that provides a complete offering of capabilities, such as:

  • A wide range of analysis capabilities: Delivers a broad range of analysis capabilities that enable designers, engineers, and analysts to bring product performance knowledge into the design cycle, helping them to improve collaboration, design better and safer products, save time, and reduce costs.
  • Easy to use interface: Connects with many CAD solutions, making it easy to set up simulations and produce desired results and generate reports.
  • Robust solver technology: Provides more accurate results through advanced analysis using the industry-trusted Autodesk Nastran solver.
  • Extensive material model library: Utilizes a wide range of element and material model options and a customizable database of more than 8,000 available materials.
  • Multi-CAD modeling: Imports and evaluates a range of potential designs from Autodesk® AutoCAD®, and Autodesk® Inventor® software, SolidWorks®, PTC® Creo® and Pro/ENGINEER®, Rhinoceros®, CATIA®, SpaceClaim®, Siemens® NX, Parasolid®, and JT files, ACIS, IGES, and STEP.
  • Autodesk SimStudio Tools: SimStudio Tools allow you to quickly edit your geometry for simluation. It reads in multiple CAD file formats and enables you to quickly simplify models, eliminate unnecessary detail, perform basic repair, or easily make design changes so you can explore various design ideas faster.
  • Multiphysics simulations: Provides multiphysics simulation, such as thermalelectric and fluid-structural, and the ability to simulate as-manufactured material properties for injection-molded parts
  • Flexible cloud solving: Offers flexible solving options that enable you to leverage the cloud or local resources for solving multiple simulations simultaneously
  • Autodesk product integrations: Integrates with Autodesk’s portfolio of products, such as design, simulation, visualization, and data management solutions.
