SOLIDWORKS 2022 was officially launched in late November.  Like many of the recent major software releases, there has been an emphasis on solver performance.  We designers and Engineers want to get more work accomplished in the short amount of time we often have for product design and analysis work, so the potential for faster solve times is always a welcomed enhancement!  My colleague, Robert Warren, wrote about SOLIDWORKS Plastics 2022 solver enhancements as part of the SOLIDWORKS 2022 What’s New […]

A few years ago I wrote an article regarding Solver Selection for SOLIDWORKS Simulation.  At that time we had two solver choices – FFEPlus and Direct Sparse.  Last year, SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2014 introduced the Large Problem Direct Sparse Solver.  Now with the introduction of SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2015 there are improvements to the FFEPlus solver as well as a new solver, the Intel Direct Sparse Solver. Per the SOLIDWORKS 2015 What’s New documentation, the FFEPlus solver has improvements to connector formulation […]
