Ansys bought OnScale

Have you seen these news?

Just recently the Professional & Enterprise subscribers gained a nice benefit; additional 500 core hours: https://forum.onshape.com/discussion/16618/onscale-and-onshape-500-core-hours

Does someone from Onshape (maybe @Aaron_Magnin?) know what effect this will have on your partnership with OnScale? Will the benefit stay or go away? (And might PTC buy Simscale instead?)

    No idea how I didn't see this...need to check my notification settings. Anyway, I am just finishing up a "What's New" where I talk about this, but all our indications point to this being a GREAT thing. Ansys is one of the biggest CAE providers, and will bring serious depth, $$, and capabilities to OnScale. Short answer...its a good thing!

    Thanks for that insight! I hope it’s a good thing, unlike e.g. the acquisition of SpaceClaim, which lead to its removal as a standalone version. Keeping my fingers 🤞

    Time will tell, but we're very optimistic about this.
