I've been using the static stress simulation (computed locally) which, until recently, has been free with the Personal licence of Fusion 360. Is there a reasonable alternative?
The cost that Autodesk charges for cloud credits works out to be much greater than is generally the cost to print a part and perform a real world test. I'd rather not landfill the PETG/PLA; but I'm willing to if that's what it takes to avoid the hundred's of dollars cost to simulate. The cost to add locally computed simulation back to Fusion 360 is prohibitive even if it was a one-time-cost; but, worse, it's a subscription.
Is there any free for personal use static stress simulation software? Is there some way to restore locally computed simulation to fusion 360? Is there some other viable solution?
