With OnScale Solve, set up finite element models using our web-based modeler then run your simulations on our infinitely scalable High Performance Computing platform.

Get simulation results many times faster than is possible with legacy Computer Aided Engineering tools.

What you can do

In this initial release we support 3D implicit static mechanical analyses only. Don’t worry, we will regularly be updating and improving our capabilities and functionality.

Any device

Use OnScale Solve on your desktop, tablet, or smartphone. OnScale Solve is available to you wherever you are, on any device.

For this initial beta release, we recommend using a desktop or laptop.

The Modeler, where you design your FEA models, is not yet available on mobile devices, and it is not yet fully functional on tablets.


We offer three types of account:

  • Free
  • Team
  • Enterprise

You can use OnScale Solve for free with 10 core-hours included each month. If you’ve not already, why not sign up for an account and check it out for yourself?

Some features of OnScale Solve are restricted to Team and Enterprise accounts, while other features are only available with an Enterprise account. For full details on what you get with a Team or Enterprise account, see Pricing.


In OnScale Solve simulations cost core-hours. In addition, exploring simulation results consumes core-hours at a rate of 3 core-hours per hour.

A core-hour is a measurement of computational time by a processor core. Running one CPU core for one hour costs one core-hour.

Each of our account types includes a different number of core-hours per month: see Pricing for details.

We also offer Overage. This lets you pay per core-hour should you ever need to go over your usual subscription level in a particular month.

OnScale Solve vs The Portal

OnScale Solve is where you create FEA models and run simulations. In addition, there is the Portal, which is where you can manage your account, billing details, and settings.
