Simulation Advisor is a set of tools that guide you though the analysis process. By answering a series of questions, these tools collect the necessary data to help you perform your analysis. Simulation Advisor includes:
Study Advisor. Recommends study types and outputs to expect. Helps you define sensors and creates studies automatically.
Bodies and Materials Advisor. Lets you specify how to treat bodies within a part or an assembly and apply materials to components.
Interactions Advisor. Defines internal interactions between bodies in the model as well as external interactions between the model and the environment. Interactions can include loads, fixtures, connectors, and contacts.
Mesh and Run Advisor. Helps you specify the mesh and run the study.
Results Advisor. Provides tips for interpreting and viewing the output of the simulation. Also, helps determine if frequency or buckling might be areas of concern.
Simulation Advisor works with the SolidWorks Simulation interface by starting the appropriate PropertyManagers and linking to online help topics for additional information. Simulation Advisor leads you through the analysis workflow from determining the study type through analyzing the simulation output. By following the workflow, you use, depending on your requirements, each of the individual Advisors.
