Utilizing SOLIDWORKS Simulation Drop Test Tool

Have you ever wanted to throw an old printer out the window? With SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional’s Drop Test tool you can now experience what that would be like, in a safe digital environment.

TriMech Solutions Consultant, Alain Bucio, elaborates on simulation packages available in SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional. Drop Test is a specific type of dynamic analysis used to model the impact force of a short time duration event and can prove useful in obtaining a benchmark simulation. Alain walks you through how to setup simulation workflow specific sensors to test out different scenarios.
