SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2015 – Self Contact

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

There were a number of new features added in SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2015 to help improve our analysis work.  One of those cool features is the ‘Self Contact’ option, available in Simulation Professional and Simulation Premium.  In Simulation, a contact describes the interaction between components that occur, either as an initial condition or a result of the applied loading.  Failure to properly define contact conditions between components may result in a number of outcomes, normally incorrect results or the Finite Element […]

SOLIDWORKS 2015 What’s New – Drawing Zones #SW2015

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

The enhancements of SOLIDWORKS 2015 keep coming. Engineering drawings have always had drawing zones around the outside of the title block to communicate what areas of the drawings are being referenced in documentation. SOLIDWORKS 2015 allows you to define the zones on a sheet format for providing locations of drawing views and annotations. Right click on the sheet and select properties. There is a new tab for Zone Parameters. The visibility of the zones can be controlled under the View […]

SOLIDWORKS 2015 What’s New – Simulation: Load Case Manager #sw2015

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

When running simulations a Design Study can save a lot of time to find the best design.  In SOLIDWORKS 2015 we now have the Load Case Manager.  This tool allows us to create and test different primary load cases and linear combinations of the primary load cases in static studies.  This tool can be started by right-clicking on the study name in the Simulation study tree. In this example, the primary load cases are “Twisting” and “Twisting with Downward Force.”  […]
