SimScale announces free workshop series for 3D engineering simulation on drone design

Drones SimScale

The first browser-based simulation platform in the world can now be easily learned

The growing community of private DIY Drone designers and manufacturers has inspired the creators of the first browser-based simulation platform in the world, SimScale, to support them by preparing a free online workshop about engineering simulation for drones and UAVs design. Everyone that signs up for the workshop series will receive a special free trial period for the platform that is activated one day before each workshop starts.

Attending this workshop will enable the participants to use engineering simulation for designing their own drones and UAVs, which can dramatically reduce the costs of building several physical prototypes.

Using a ready-to-build drone design, the experts will train the simulation enthusiasts and encourage them to start using the SimScale platform to design their own drone. Containing 4 sessions, the online workshop includes hands-on lessons and follow-up homework assignments to expand participants’ knowledge.

The SimScale Workshop will be a series of one-hour sessions. The main goal is to conceptualize a drone, which will be tested with the help of simulation. The first session of the workshop is planned to be held on 15th of October, at 4:00 p.m. Central European Summer Time (CEST).

Here are the 4 topics:

Participants who join all 4 workshops and complete at least one homework assignment (simulation) every week, will receive an invitation for a future session of the SimScale Professional Training (500 Euros value). All those who qualify for a free professional training will enter the prize draw for a kit that includes all parts they need to build their own drone.

As the SimScale simulation platform is becoming more and more popular among engineers, the company is focusing on making it as easy as possible for simulation enthusiasts and engineers who are new to simulation by providing them with trainings, webinars, documentation and other free learning resources. This way, they can learn how to perform simulations in the shortest time possible and make informed design decisions early in the development process.

In addition to the free online course for drone simulation, other resources such as documentation, blog articles, public project library, and getting started training videos can be found on the company’s website.

About SimScale

SimScale GmbH developed the first web-based platform that drastically simplifies the access to numerical simulation. The company’s employees and its 5 founders – mechanical engineers, computer scientists and mathematicians – have created a platform that revolutionizes the way Computer-Aided Engineering is done. SimScale encapsulates a broad range of simulation tools ― including Fluid Mechanics, Structural Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Acoustics and Particle Analysis ― in a single user interface which can be tested free of charge on Having a 90 days money back guarantee for the Professional and Enterprise accounts, SimScale is encouraging companies to benefit from simulation without the risk that usually comes with it.

Funded by High-Tech Gründerfonds (HTGF), BayernKapital, Earlybird Venture Capital and a business angel consortium, SimScale is bringing simulation to the next level.
