Was it really last year that Vik wrote about Two Neat Additions  to Simulation in 2013?  How time flies!  For all its power, the addition of Submodeling studies for Simulation 2013 has seemingly gone unnoticed by our Simulation user base. In most cases, we are usually interested in the performance of a small portion of the model, maybe a part or two of the whole design.  In order to get to that area of interest, we need to analyze a […]

Since it is the Christmas season, why don’t we look at one of the great presents we were given in SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2013!  While there were many great enhancements this year, and it is very difficult to pick a favorite new Simulation toy, here is one that I personally rank towards the top of my list.  The ability to use SOLIDWORKS Materials in Design Studies was a great gift, also known as an enhancement, to Simulation!   Prior to this release, […]

Troubleshooting a Common Transient Thermal Study Error

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

A great feature of Thermal studies with SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional is the ability to utilize other thermal study results as an input for transient analysis.  This allows us, for instance, to analyze the response of a heating or cooling process on our components and assemblies.  This is done by editing the properties of the study, changing the study type to Transient, checking the box for ‘Initial temperatures from thermal study’ and choosing the appropriate study as an input.  (It is […]
