SOLIDWORKS Tech Tip – Simulation Productivity Tools: LIBRARY FEATURES

Have you ever wondered if there was a way to save a simulation feature such as a load, fixture, or a connector as a library feature, just like SOLIDWORKS? Simulation library features could serve as templates and help accelerate the design iteration process. Especially when multiple users across design teams are tasked with using simulation, […]

Solving Beamy Part 2 – Three-Point Bending Test with Structural Professional Engineer

In the previous blog post, we discussed solving a 3-point bending test for a bracket for a new portable projector. Figure 1 shows a typical 3-point bending test, but please read the previous blog for a review of how we solved the problem using SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium. Figure 1 – Typical Three-Point Bending Test   […]

Solving Beamy – Three-Point Bending Test with SOLIDWORKS Simulation

Three-point bending tests are a common way to evaluate the structural integrity of mechanical components and ensure they meet required displacement/force criteria. A typical test setup for this type of test is shown in Figure 1 below. Figure 1 – Typical Three-Point Bending Test   Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is often used to mimic these […]

SOLIDWORKS SIMULATION – Quick & Easy… and Accurate Design Validation for ALL

I remember back 18 years ago when Dassault Systèmes acquired SRAC and the concept of Design Validation began. The idea that Designers & Engineers could use FEA software as an integral – almost daily part of the design process was in it’s infancy. This is where SOLIDWORKS has always been a leader, making difficult activities […]

 

Handling Interferences for Meshing in SOLIDWORKS Simulation

If you’ve ever run into the case where you get the following message, seen below in Image 1: “At least two bodies are interfering. Do you want to check interference?” Image 1: Detected bodies that are interfering.  Agghhh! And I’m pretty sure that you have, so as you know it can be really frustrating.  So […]
