SIMULIA for SOLIDWORKS- Import via SOLIDWORKS Connector

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Lately, many of my blogs have talked about the power that SIMULIA for SOLIDWORKS adds to the SOLIDWORKS Simulation suite. Whether it’s advanced FEA, plastic injection simulation, or fluid dynamics, there is almost certainly a role on the platform that can help any engineer with complex simulations. I haven’t written a lot about the link that exists between the geometry in SOLIDWORKS, and the new 3D Experience environment. So today, I’d like to discuss the first of two methods for […]

What is the Next “Step” in 3DEXPERIENCE Simulation?

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

As a SOLIDWORKS Simulation user for many years, the transition to the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform has been quite the adventure so far. The integration of the Abaqus technology has yielded a lot of new bells and whistles into our simulation portfolio. When it comes to simulation, great power comes with- well, steep learning curves. Today, I would like to demystify the elusive “Step” in a 3DEXPERIENCE SIMULIA for SOLIDWORKS simulation. In Abaqus (the parent technology behind SIMULIA for SOLIDWORKS), a step […]

SIMULIA for SOLIDWORKS- So Excited I Dropped my phone!

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I really enjoyed 3D Experience World 2021 a couple weeks ago (by time of posting). There were so many great presentations from SOLIDWORKS and 3D Experience users and VARs from all over the world. I for one was most excited when I learned that many of the 3D Experience apps can be opened and viewed directly via your smartphone! That’s all I needed, another reason to be on my phone all […]

What Does Effective FEA Look Like in 2021?

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

If you’ve been successfully doing FEA for years or decades, you have no doubt developed an effective process for getting the job done.  But imagine you’re a smart, new innovator just starting out today — do you think you’re going to settle on that same old process, proven as it may be?  The reality is: What once took a day now takes an hour. What once required human decision-making doesn’t anymore. What was once cost-prohibitive to use isn’t anymore. These […]

The Global SIMULIA & CATIA Conference Is Coming, and We’re Presenting!

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Join us virtually for the 3DEXPERIENCE Modeling and Simulation Conference, November 17-18!  We’ll be having two fascinating presentations for you to enjoy: Effective Methods for User-Defined Meshing in CST Microwave Studio A key benefit of CST Microwave Studio is the broad selection of high-frequency solvers. This includes two general-purpose base solvers, Time Domain and Frequency Domain, and two special-purpose solvers, Integral and Asymptotic. We will review user-defined meshing methods, best practices, and solver settings that affect mesh quality and solution […]

What VALUE Does a VAR Bring to Your Business?

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Working with a value-added reseller when purchasing CAE simulation software ensures your business gets the most out of its investment. If you’ve ever spent any time researching simulation software options for your organization, you’ve probably come across the term “VAR,” which stands for “value-added reseller.” VARs emerge in industries where high levels of technical knowledge are required to work with a product, especially when the product developers don’t have the resources required to manage complex and industry-specific support questions on […]

Simulia’s SSE changes to SPE. So, What’s in a Name?

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Mid-2018 Dassault Systems and SOLIDWORKS launched a joint project that offers advanced Nonlinear capabilities powered by Simulia, to the SOLIDWORKS Simulation community. Simulia’s Structural Stress Engineer, SSE for short, picks up high strain applications where SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium stops. The SOLIDWORKS Simulation tool set has been a standard in the FEA world since the late 1980’s Formerly called COSMOS, SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium has advanced Nonlinear capabilities that help solve advanced engineering problems including geometric nonlinearities, nonlinear materials, and transient problems.
