Project Simulus is a free technology preview that showcases a number of innovative approaches to mechanical simulation.
This technology preview offers powerful geometry modification capabilities through embedding Autodesk Fusion along with a very intuitive simplification environment to prepare various CAD models for different simulation studies. In addition, it provides you with easy and quick ways to set up and run many simulation studies, exploiting the power of cloud computing that leaves your desktop free of much of the computational burdens.
You can try it and send us feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org or post to this thread.
So what's the feedback after day 1? Any thoughts?
That is a man on a mission right there.
You can cancel a job using the Simulation Job Manager, which is in your application tray
Open this app and you will see all your jobs. For queued or running jobs, you will have the option to Cancel.
Eventually this application will allow you to manage all job you have submitted from any Simulation app on your machine.
NOW I see where all my subscription money is going, into a different software. Thank you sir can I please have another.
I'm in love with it. I'm still familiarizing myself with the steady-state thermal and coupled thermal stress.
I'm exploring a thermal simulation for heat generated during braking for a rotor-caliper system. I've added a convective heat transfer load to simulate the cooling effect of the rotor vanes. I haven't yet added the isotherm for the brake pad friction surface and thermal contacts for the rotor hat and caliper.

There is one issue I don't understand: even though I have the 'Launch on System Startup' box on the Simulation Job Manager > Preferences > General tab unchecked, it STILL launches at startup, throwing the Job Status dialog up on screen (no jobs or file transfers active, by the way). What the heck?
Sorry, the 'Launch on System Startup' option isn't working, you can manually remove it from your Start menu, All Programs, Startup to work around this. When you run another job with Simulus it will launch automatically.
Sorry for the inconvenience,
