SimScale, a Munich, Germany-based web-based simulation company, closed a Series A funding round.
The round, whose amount was not disclosed, was led by Union Square Ventures with participation from seed funding investor Earlybird Venture Capital and angel investor Axel Bichara.
The company intends to use the funds to bring high-performance 3D simulation technology to designers and engineers globally.
Founded in 2012 by David Heiny, Vincenz Dölle, Alexander Fischer, Johannes Probst, and Anatol Dammer, SimScale provides web-based 3D simulation technology for engineers, designers and students to virtually test their designs in-browser, improving their product development process.
