6 Steps to your first SOLIDWORKS Simulation

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

SOLIDWORKS Simulation has been around for years tracing its roots back to 1982 and the Structural Research and Analysis Corporation (SRAC). SOLIDWORKS Simulation used to be called COSMOS Works, and since its early days, the Finite Element Analysis program has strived to be powerful, accurate, and EASY to use. Part of SOLIDWORKS Simulation’s ease of use are the simple Six Steps that every Simulation Study shares. Step 1: Define your Study. Static, Thermal, Frequency, etc. Step 2: Assign your Materials […]

Holes In Your Model? No Worries with SOLIDWORKS Plastics

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

When dealing with different customers or vendors you will inevitably run into a situation where you need to import a model from another CAD software. With advancements in import technology, models open better than ever. But there are times when you get a hole in your model. This can be troublesome as SOLIDWORKS Plastics requires the Mold Cavity to be watertight. This can be fixed by using the SOLIDWORKS modeling tools but may require some surfacing techniques. Fortunately, SOLIDWORKS Plastics […]

Verification that the software you use is doing what it is supposed to do is nothing new. We just may not know how to access this information. Like my colleague Kurt Kurtin who discussed the SOLIDWORKS Simulation Verification documents in his blog Simulation Verification – How Accurate are My Results, I wanted to make sure you knew where these verification documents are located for SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation. The Flow Simulation verification documents are a little more hidden than the one […]

Make Your Mark on Injection Locations in SOLIDWORKS Plastics Simulation

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Over time we learn new ways to do things. For example, I recently learned SOLIDWORKS’ preferred way of creating an injection location in SOLIDWORKS Plastics Simulation. Let’s take a look at SOLIDWORKS’ preferred method to create injection locations, the benefits of split lines, and the role split lines play in the process. An injection location is where the cavity is filled from the runner system. Gates are the portion of the runner system that attaches to the injection location. Typically, […]
