Creating User Groups on your 3DEXPERIENCE Platform is something you can do to save a lot of time when making assignments. First let’s take a look at creating a User Group. If you are a platform administrator, you will have access to an app from the compass called User Groups.  The easiest way to find it (or any role/app) is to search for it. Once you have launched the app you can hit the new group button to create a […]

Step By Step, Multiple Sequential Loads in SIMULIA for SOLIDWORKS

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium has always been able to apply multiple loads in sequence if the model does not move position. This means cold forming operations generally could not be simulated using multiple dies. With the introduction of SIMULIA for SOLIDWORKS now we can. Let us look at the setup for the model and the desired output. In this model we have a metal tube, and a die set (Stations 1 & 2). The intention is to press the tube into […]

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 […]
