How to buy
The Fusion 360 Simulation Extension lets your team analyse 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 moulding, for manufacturing insights.
Simulate what you need with access to a wide range of advanced finite element analysis (FEA) simulation capabilities that use trusted solvers from matured simulation software.
Simplify your simulation CAD models and simulation studies. Compare design changes and revisions without the need to export models.
Detect and visualise moldability. Predict the quality of injection-moulded plastic parts. Use design change recommendations to inform your 3D designs.
Injection moulding simulation
Run simulations to identify how part design influences part manufacturability and part quality for plastic injection moulded parts.
Non-linear static stress
Simulate large deformation, motion, contact and load change behaviours on non-linear materials.
Predict how time-dependant forces influence 3D design performance.
Thermal steady state
Trace heat transfer to understand if your part may fail based on the maximum critical temperature.
The Fusion 360 Simulation Extension is a set of simulation study types to help you to evaluate how well your 3D design will perform and how easy it can be made.
Analyse the performance and manufacturability of your 3D designs to ensure that they will meet the demands of real-world conditions with structural, thermal and explicit simulation tools.
The Simulation Extension also includes injection moulding simulation studies to help you in gaining plastic injection moulding manufacturing insights for your 3D design.

The Fusion 360 Simulation Extension unlocks key insights of product design performance and quality through mechanical, structural and injection moulding analysis tools including:
The Fusion 360 Simulation Extension can be accessed using different payment methods to suit your business needs. For ongoing access, subscribe to the extension for 1-month or 1-year.
The extension, developed by Autodesk, offers flex access to unlock professional-grade tools as and when you need them. By comparison, stand-alone simulation programmes tend to be point solutions, intended to provide limited simulation capability. Having access to various simulation studies within your CAD programme promotes more insight into the part design while you design it.
