Structural Performance Engineer and Structural Mechanics Engineer are two of the 3DEXPERIENCE Finite Element Analysis Roles. Both Roles are part of SIMULIA for SOLIDWORKS, and offer advanced SIMULIA Solvers, Contacts, and Meshing capabilities. This article has been created to help document the most direct way of importing a SOLIDWORKS model into Structural Performance Engineer, or Structural Mechanics Engineer. Step 1: Open Structural Mechanics Engineer or Structural Performance Engineer Role. Choose Structural Scenario Creation, or Mechanical Scenario Creation App. Note Structural […]

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 […]

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 […]
