ONSCALE SOLVE: THE WORLD’S FIRST
CLOUD ENGINEERING SIMULATION PLATFORM
and fully integrated with Onshape!
OnScale enables true digital prototypes: digital representations of physical systems that fully capture physical behavior and massively reduce cost, risk, and time versus outdated physical prototypes for any R&D organization.
ACCESS CLOUD SIMULATION
RIGHT FROM ONSHAPE
To accelerate your iterations and R&D cycles, Onshape now integrates with OnScale Solve. OnScale is a cloud-based simulation platform for product development that unites CAD, product lifecycle management, and collaboration tools. Utilizing this integration enables engineers to access and collaborate both CAD and simulation in the cloud, greatly reducing the time for innovation to market.
ELIMINATE WHAT’S SLOWING DOWN
YOUR SPEED TO INNOVATE
OnScale is the first cloud engineering simulation platform. It combines powerful multi physics solver technology with the limitless compute power of cloud supercomputers.
With OnScale, engineers can run massive numbers of full 3D multi physics simulations in parallel to create true digital prototypes—digital representations of physical high-tech devices that capture the complete behavior of a devices over its operating envelope.
By shifting from expensive, time-consuming physical prototyping to digital prototyping, OnScale will help your team massively reduce cost, risk, and time-to-market—all while pushing the boundaries of innovation.
Slow & Expensive Infrastructure
OnScale has partnered with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to offer customers a greater choice of global compute options to better meet their HPC, privacy, and security needs. AWS carries extensive certifications for securing and protecting data.
The AWS Cloud spans 61 Availability Zones within 20 geographic regions around the world to meet customer needs for availability and performance.
By using AWS and providing users a flexible SaaS subscription model, OnScale offers engineers across disciplines nearly infinite HPC compute resources to run complex simulations, for a fraction of the time it’d take and cost to run locally.
Time Wasted Setting Up Simulations
Time is money and that is why OnScale Solve utilizes AI estimators to provide all users a prediction of how long a simulation study is going to take and how much it will cost. These are accurately predicted prior to hitting the run button and committing to any simulation. It also predicts the memory required to solve so that appropriate cloud HPC hardware is automatically selected to compute the simulation.
Using a pay-as-you-simulate business model, it provides enterprise-grade simulation capabilities available to every engineer. Combined with cloud HPC, users can scale up and down based on their requirements.
OnScale Solve AI estimators provides all users with accurate predictions of simulation runtimes and costs so that nothing is left to chance.
Limited In-house Horsepower
OnScale’s high-performance natively-parallel multiphysics solvers were developed for the most demanding organizations in the world. They can run on public, AWS and GCP, or private cloud supercomputers. Your simulation time will go from days to minutes.
You can get any number of cores and memory needed to run your simulations. OnScale is multi-tenant – there are no software licenses and no IT license management issues. Your engineers are no longer stymied by the limitations of your in-house hardware.
CLOUD-BASED SIMULATION IS A DESIGN
GAME-CHANGER FOR ENGINEERS
Hudson Street Solutions is the only Onshape reseller with OnScale expertise to make integrating and training your engineers to work with this powerful cloud duo easy and seamless.
Onshape / OnScale Integration Features
- Onshape parametric CAD models can be directly imported into OnScale Solve through the OnScale Connector App, which means that Onshape CAD models are directly made available in OnScale and ready for simulation in the cloud.
- This integration allows engineers to access both CAD and simulation in the cloud, providing them with a unique SaaS design and engineering innovation platform.
- OnScale automatically scans a CAD geometry for issues that would impact the creation of a valid simulation, reports these to the users, and where possible will repair them.
- Easily identify boundary conditions and types of physics applied in the model through intuitive 3D rendering in the UI.
INTRODUCING THE ONSCALE PLATFORM
Tools to Accelerate Your Design Process
UI & UX
OnScale UI is built on the latest web browser technology, delivering an intuitive simulation workflow and delightful user experience:
- The user is able to interact with all of the simulation data stored on the cloud, accessing only the data needed to generate charts, tables, images, and animations.
- Team and project dashboards are available to efficiently navigate simulation studies and manage core-hour usage.
Built-in version control eliminates the need for a separate Product Data Management (PDM) system.
Everybody works on the latest design data at all times, and a Git-style design tree enables multiple product ideas to be developed in parallel.
Security is paramount with OnScale Solve. Account administrators can choose to enable multifactor authentication and maintain adherence to company IT security policies.
Taking advantage of multifactor authentication functionality is highly recommended. Solely using a password to sign into an application makes users more susceptible to security threats.
The Simulation API available in OnScale is Python-based and fully supports UI and solvers calls allowing any functionality to be accessed within a script and embedded in any process.
The Simulation API adds a greater amount of flexibility and control to OnScale: simulations can be efficiently defined and submitted through different mechanisms and workflows including user-defined scripts, third-party tools, and even a user-built UI or app.
This powerful feature provides visibility into the simulation process that have been traditionally difficult to obtain. Quickly review simulation status through intuitive dashboards:
- Track simulation studies, run-times, core-hour balance and spend to date.
- Easily move through previous versions and gain insights into the evolution of the design.
Massive simulation studies can be run by parameterizing load conditions and material properties.
OnScale automatically scans a CAD geometry for issues that would effect the creation of a valid simulation, reports these to the users, and where possible will repair them.
As with all OnScale features, powerful back-end AI algorithms learn from each iteration and make future imports faster and more reliable.
CAD 3D Model
Easily identify boundary conditions and types of physics applied in the model through intuitive 3D rendering in the UI.
Helping remove confusion and ambiguity on the simulation set-up enables more reliable results to be achieved downstream, removing the garbage in garbage out (GIGO) conditions that have plagued simulation tools since their inception.
Designed as a Cloud Engineering Simulation platform, OnScale Solve has been expanded with Onshape, the cloud-native product development platform that unites CAD and data management.
This integration allows engineers to access both CAD and simulation in the cloud, providing them with a unique SaaS design and engineering innovation platform.
DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION STRATEGY
WITHOUT LIMITS WITH ONSHAPE + ONSCALE
A single source of truth, no matter what the application, enables concurrent modification of data with changes updating instantly for every team contributor.
Best-in-class companies focus on teams, rather than individuals, and the end-to-end product development process, not just design tools.
Digital transformation is only achieved once all company data silos are connected and compatible, providing new types of innovation and creativity instead of simply enhancing and supporting traditional methods.
