FEA and CFD simultation

what type of files do you import into Autodesk Fusion 360 extensions to do a FEA and CFD... I use a different CAD package

Will it import a .stp, iges, or parasolid to create your mesh and material properties

Hi @jeremy_camper 

Here is a link to an article that lists the File formats supported in Fusion 360.

Is this what you're looking for?

 

Thanks,

So if I'm reading this correctly I can import my actual NX file into Fusion 360 extensions to do a FEA and CFD analysis?

 

May I ask, what training is available? 

I've done it before but it was in I-deas so it was a long time ago

Hi @jeremy_camper 

Correct, below is an image that shows the file formats that Fusion can open. Fusion has built in FEA functionality but does not currently have CFD functionality. Autodesk CFD would be the tool to use for CFD.

It looks like you may  be working company, you may like the tutorials on this page: Self-paced learning for Fusion 360.

So how much would it be to be able to do fusion 360, 360 extensions, and cfd?

Hi @jeremy_camper 

You posted these questions to the Educators forum. This forum is aimed at helping educators use Fusion in the classroom.

 

Here is a link to the Fusion 360 commercial site where Fusion can be purchased. You can chat with an agent by clicking on the icon on the lower-right corner of the screen.

I'm so sorry!

I see the simulation but not the CFD

Where am I missing it

Thank you so much for your help 

Just being honest, I'm comparing fusion and solidedge simulation 

Message 10 of 19

You probably can't answer this and I TOTALLY get it but what makes fusion better?

Main thing that jumps out at me is it imports the actual nx and Catia file

 

I'm not sure solidworks sim does that

Hi @jeremy_camper 

This is a great question to ask on the Fusion 360 Design, Validate & Document forum.

For example the Catia and NX files you can import

when imported does in come in with model history or bodies that way you can turn stuff on and off?

Hi @jeremy_camper 

When opening designs from other CAD systems into Fusion (and other CAD systems), the feature tree will be lost as will assembly constraints. The parts / bodies should come across. Fusion has Direct Editing tools that allow you to manipulate the imported models, you can turn on the design history and capture new features

Hope this helps.

Last question... lol

I hope, can you use simulation (fea) without being on the cloud?

Not sure how customers would feel about that

Hi @jeremy_camper 

I believe all simulation studies are now done in the cloud and your data is saved in the cloud as well.

Maybe silly question but wanted to ask

I am going to download the trial of fusion 360 and 360 extension... is anything I test kept confidential/private?

 

2. Is the trial ever extended? I want to get DECENT that way I can make a educated justification. Lol

Hi @jeremy_camper 

The data that you creates is private. You own it and you control other that you may want to invite into your Fusion Team / Project.

 

You'll have to engage the commercial team about your trial question. I don't want to misspeak.

 

Thanks,

-Dan

That's what I thought on both cases but wanted to make sure

I don't have anything in mind but was checking off the list

 

Is there a way I can send you a private message?
