Cloud-Based Simulation for Sustainable Design
The importance of simulation has long been well understood to designers, but largely out of reach because of the bottleneck to the computing power required. As a result, too often design simulation doesn’t happen, “it’s not part of the equation,” says Grant Rochelle, Senior Director of Industry Marketing for Autodesk. “This is done… by building in very large safety factors. So that increases material costs and all kinds of other things because you’re way over-engineering and you don’t need to.” The solution, from Autodesk’s point of view, is in the cloud – specifically access to the cloud for the many, instead of just the few.
