Stop Getting Lost with the Improved Interface of SolidWorks Simulation 2014 [VIDEO]

Article by Irfan Zardadkhan, PhD, CSWE updated September 27, 2013


When working with results plots in SolidWorks Simulation, the plot settings are stored under three groups, “Edit Definition”, “Settings” and “Chart Options”. After using SolidWorks Simulation for a considerable amount of time, I still forget what goes under what and I have to cycle through all the options before finding what I am looking for. Not anymore, in SolidWorks 2014, although you will still see all the three menu items when you right-click on a results plot, all three options are available as tabs in the same PropertyManager, so you can cycle through all the settings just by clicking on the appropriate tab.

The Color Chart is also “alive” now. You can double-click it and right-click it to get to various options like changing the results quantity, the min/max on the color chart, turning on/off the min/max annotations and some other settings. These are some of the enhancements to the User-Interface in SolidWorks 2014. See the attached video to see the new user interface and stay tuned for more enhancements in SolidWorks/Simulation 2014.
