SOLIDWORKS 2018 What’s New – Simulation Topology Study – #SW2018 One of the new features in SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2018 is Topology Study.  Topology is essentially the space and shape that an object occupies.  When we are designing new products, if individual components are too large and occupy too much space it can limit our creativity.  Also, the larger the component becomes the more we are cost-penalized due to added material needs.  In SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2018, the Topology Study allows you […]

SOLIDWORKS Design Insight Plot: Locations of Max Loading

When running Static Studies, there are many useful plots that can give a wide variety of information.  One of these plots is the Design Intent plot and sometimes known as a “load path” plot.  This plot is designed to show the areas with higher loading.  Using this plot, it can be determined what areas could potentially be reduced to save on material or weight.  It can also be used to identify what areas might need to be “beefed up,” but […]
