SOLIDWORKS 2011: 2D Planar Analysis


Many a times a complex problem can be simplified by testing the parts in 2D. In Simulation 2011 users can select a plane and apply loads and restraints to 2D model. Once the test is run, results can be interpolated to a 3D model. Since only planar sections are solved, there is little overhead, reducing run time significantly.
