SimScale: Importing geometry

In this video, Dr. Ico Broekhuizen explains how to import your model into SimScale and generate a virtual wind tunnel for simulation.

SimScale allows you to import models that you have previously created in 3D modelling programs such as Revit or Sketchup. The CAD mode in SimScale then allows you to convert a model of buildings to a model of the wind volume around the buildings, which needs to be sufficiently large to get accurate simulation results.
