Simulation Advisor is a set of tools that guide you though the analysis process. By answering a series of questions, these tools collect the necessary data to help you perform your analysis. Simulation Advisor includes: Study Advisor. Recommends study types and outputs to expect. Helps you define sensors and creates studies automatically. Bodies and Materials Advisor. Lets you specify how to treat bodies within a part or an assembly and apply materials to components. Interactions Advisor. Defines internal interactions between […]
A connector is a mechanism that defines how an entity (vertex, edge, face) is connected to another entity or to the ground. Using connectors simplifies modeling because, in many cases, you can simulate the desired behavior without having to create the detailed geometry or define contact conditions.A Bolt can connect two components, multiple components, or a component and the ground. You can define bolts through a mixed stack of solids, shells and sheet metal bodies. There are three commonly […]
Using SOLIDWORKS Motion Analysis users can model motion of an assembly that incorporates event-based motion control. For example, in a manufacturing procress that includes components moving along a conveyor belt, motors turn on or change according to compoonent position along the belt. However, since you do not know the exact time at which a component reaches a position before calculating the motion, you cannot determine the time to change the motor value. Without knowing the exavt times to turn on […]
"The World is Non Linear" is the topic of my presentation at this years SOLIDWORKS World User Conference " SOLIDWORKS World 2011". The conference is held from Jan 23 – 26 in the Henry B Gonzalez Convention Center at San Antonio TX. I will be exploring Non Linear Simulation techniques, the need, approch to solve non linear engineering issures. This is a hands-on session, so attendees will practice concepts learned. It is a great opportunity to bring your engineering concerns […]
I found this article on desktop engineering. It charts the importance of simulation in todays development environment. A great article emphazing how computer aided engineering is revolutionizing the industry. What better way to kick start the new year than to adapt efficient design techniques saving time and money for your organization.
