SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2018: Designer to Analyst

When I first started using analysis tools it was the domain of the expert, the engineer with the PhD. Virtual testing was used sparingly and only for high value applications. But today? Today, simulation has become a tool used throughout the product development process. So what changed? Well, simulation became accessible to those without PhDs […]

My Highlights of SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2018: the New Topology Study

SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2018 introduces a new study type, the Topology Study, which enables designers and engineers to develop innovative minimum mass components. Based upon linear static loads and restraints, the topology study will ‘remove’ elements from the finite element mesh until the target mass or best stiffness-to-weight ratio shape is reached. This iterative process of […]
