Subscriptions and Usage Management
Orbital Stack manages usage via a credit (or token) system. There are two types of credits: AI Credits and CFD Credits. AI simulations use one AI-Credit per wind direction (e.g. 8 credits for a typical 8 wind direction simulation). CFD simulations use 7 CFD-Credits for a Wind Only Analysis and 10 CFD-Credits for Full Analysis which includes wind, solar and thermal comfort.
The following options are available for purchase:
Bundles are typically purchased for the testing of new design ideas, supporting project competitions, and for larger projects with multiple design iterations and stages.
- Starter: 120 AI Credits
- Professional: 200 AI Credits + 10 CFD Credits
- Elite: 320 AI Credits + 30 CFD Credits
- Basic: 120 AI Credits + 10 CFD Credits
- Standard: 240 AI Credits + 20 CFD Credits + 1 hour of RWDI consulting on results
- Premium: 560 AI Credits + 60 CFD Credits
Subscription plans will refill every month until the plan has expired. The “Monthly” column shows the list of active subscriptions you currently have, as well as the usage to date during the month, and the day of the month when credits are refilled (monthly roll over).
Your CFD credits are visible in the Pay-Per-Use column.
For full pricing details for bundles and subscriptions please visit https://orbitalstack.com/pricing/.
You may also purchase credits on a Pay-per-Use basis.
