Simulate directly on Onshape models on the cloud with Intact app

Andrew_TaberAndrew_Taber Member, Developers Posts: 4
Intact is a simulation tool built around making simulation easy and inexpensive by simulating directly on Onshape models. No installation, meshing, or preprocessing is necessary. We just released Intact on the app store, so check it out. It's free for now, and we'd love to hear your feedback on how to best fit your needs!

    Andrew I have seen Intact and it looks great.  Congratulations.  I hope our users understand how powerful and profound it is to do simulation without needing to mesh!! It is crazy cool to avoid the time and frustration of meshing!

    @Andrew_Taber, Nice app....

    How long does a simulation take? I tried a simple angle plate and have been waiting for several minutes but it still shows "in progress." I was hoping that maybe I could use this in my solid modeling and FEA class, but not if it takes this long for a simple part. Cloud-based is nice, but this kind of tool needs to live up to certain standards to be usable. At this point it does not live up to those standards. It looks like I will still be using Creo for simulation with class.

    Hi Brian,

    Thanks for giving it a try! We're definitely still iterating on our performance and usability :) Generally simulations take a couple of minutes, but there's also quite a bit of variability depending on the complexity of the part. If you're willing to share some more details, we'd love to take a look at the part that's causing trouble - just drop us a line at [email protected]

    Hello,
    i ve test and it's really good and awesome.
    Intact is really intuitive.

    i've an education plan. 
    Intact will be just one month freely or with the education plan can i still use it after one month ?
    thanks a lot

    The part I tried was a simple angle plate with one triangular gusset, no holes or other features. I did not get results for at least an hour, could have been longer. I cannot do that in a classroom setting. Sorry. I'll stick with Creo for now.

    hi,
    i am trying to use intact on the most simple onshape model. it does not work for me.
