3DEXPERIENCE Works is the Sound of SOLIDWORKS Getting Better

Many of us understand why people are so passionate about Apple products or why people line up at Starbucks. Neither company invented mobile communication or coffee shops, but both serve their customers in a way that consistently provides exceptional quality. At SOLIDWORKS, we have put many years of development and effort into creating an exceptional […]

Validate Designs for Life with 3DEXPERIENCE Works Simulation

Why is durability important? Usually, when companies think about using simulation, they think about increasing product strength and stiffness while reducing weight. However, this approach neglects a pervasive failure mode that is readily calculated: metal fatigue.  Up to 90% of all in-service mechanical failures are due to fatigue when repeated loading and unloading weakens the […]

Breaking Simulation Barriers for All (Part Two)

In part one of this simulation article, we discussed finite element analysis (FEA) tools. Not only are FEA tools often difficult to learn and use, but in some cases they also require expanded computing resources. However, SOLIDWORKS® delivers a scalable simulation portfolio accessible to everyone, including students, designers, engineers, and high-level FEA specialists. The 3DEXPERIENCE® […]

Breaking Simulation Barriers

Simulation can be a key differentiator for companies who develop innovative products. Unfortunately, many finite element analysis (FEA) software products are too difficult to use, unless you are a highly trained expert. Plus, limitations in functionality and computing power have also crippled FEA adoption into mainstream design and engineering departments. A survey done by Tech […]

Better, faster, stronger (but not harder)

This entry is not about the song by French duo Daft Punk, even though I admit to being a fan. This is about an important enhancement in SolidWorks Simulation 2014: Performance. Virtual simulation is now used as a 3D concurrent engineering tool by product engineers during each phase of the Product development cycle. To make […]
