Bonded, Bolted, or Pinned – Why You Should Simplify Your Analysis

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Simplify, simplify, simplify!  I cannot count how many times I’ve had this discussion with customers when reviewing their CAD models and listening to what they want to analyze with SOLIDWORKS Simulation.  I know how easy it is to start a new SOLIDWORKS Simulation study and begin setting up an analysis on fully-featured CAD models – click a button and you’re on your way.  Let’s look at an example of starting simple and working towards the complex with SOLIDWORKS Simulation that […]

With each new release there are always a few additions to SOLIDWORKS Simulation that catch my eye.  This year’s 2014 release is no different. I’ll write about several of the enhancements over the coming months but I’m going to start with the conversion of Toolbox fasteners into Simulation connectors. Using connectors in Simulation allows us to replace physical components with virtual ones which will reduce the time required to solve the analysis.  In Simulation 2013 and prior, there are a […]
