1. Create Project

To be able to upload cases to KaleidoSim create a project.


2. Define Project

After adding a project, you will be requested to give that project a name and select the OpenFoam® version which you’d like to use to solve your cases in the cloud. You will be able to specify the solver per case.


3. Create Case

From within the created project click on “create case” to upload your case(s).


4. Case setup

During Case setup you will be able to define your case parameters before running your cases in the cloud.


5. Folder structure

Zip your whole case folder before uploading it to the platform.

Make sure your file is in zip file format, e.g. ( and others are not supported!)

Important: we run 64Bit installations. If you need 32Bit compatibility, make sure your case is set up in ascii format and NOT binary.


6. Case upload

During upload you can also select multiple .zip files to upload to the platform. All of the uploaded cases will be solved in the cloud at the same time.


7. Run case

After uploading all your cases, you will see them listed under “Project Cases”. From this view you can select which cases you want to run by using the checkbox and hitting “Run selected Cases”.


8. Get results

Once the case has completed it’s status will change from “Running” to “Completed” and you will be able to download the “output” file from the “Simulation Files”-section.
