Powerful, Accurate Simulation Modeling
Do more simulation in-house—validate and optimize your designs before releasing them to the shop floor. It doesn't take a simulation expert to take advantage of the easy-to-use, tightly integrated simulation technology in the Autodesk® solution for Digital Prototyping. And when you digitally simulate the real-world performance of your product, you can:

  • Reduce reliance on costly physical prototypes to test designs
  • Get more innovative products to market faster
  • Make the best design decisions and avoid costly mistakes

Making Design Simulation Accessible
Don't wait for an outside specialist to test your designs. Use the simulation capabilities in the Autodesk solution for Digital Prototyping to analyze designs throughout the design process—and rapidly iterate and improve designs to meet customer needs. The bi-directional data flow between Autodesk simulation software and mechanical engineering tools makes it easy to validate and update digital prototypes based on design simulation results.

Relying heavily on the simulation capabilities in its Autodesk solution for Digital Prototyping, Valiant Machine & Tool developed a groundbreaking portable cargo loader for Boeing.

"Thanks to the interoperability between Inventor® and Algor® (now called Autodesk® Simulation® software), we could make incremental changes and quickly assess whether the design would still hold up. In general, conducting analysis in-house with Algor Simulation software helps us reduce errors and design time. We don't have to wait for an expensive third party to test our designs for us."
—Tom Stein, mechanical and simulation research and development engineer, Valiant Machine & Tool
