SOLIDWORKS Functions Useful for Simulation

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

SOLIDWORKS functionality can be used to make life easier when working with Simulations. The following functions can help speed things along for you: Simulation-specific configurations Interference detection check for simulation-ready geometry Split lines for boundary condition application Configurations Most analysis projects require you to edit the geometry in some way before setting up the simulation. If you set up a new configuration for the analysis, you can make changes to the geometry without affecting the original design. This allows for […]

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Report Generation Need to quickly organize and publish results from SOLIDWORKS Simulation? Make use of the program’s report generation functionality, which publishes the information directly to Microsoft Word. First, set up the template to be used for all subsequent reports via the Simulation Options window, accessed via the Simulation pull down menu. Setup Sections are selected and edited during the report setup. Note that there are formats for each study type and you can uncheck the boxes typically […]

SOLIDWORKS Simulation-Using Symmetry

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Geometric and Loading Symmetry Some geometric shapes possess the property of symmetry. If a body, or an assembly of components, is able to be cut such that mirroring or patterning the remaining portion can be used to represent the entire body, then the body or assembly is said to be symmetric. Symmetry in the loading application is also present if the loading can be cut such that mirroring or patterning of the remaining portion can be used to represent the […]
