SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2017 now gives you the ability to display the results of a Simulation plot in the SOLIDWORKS graphics area. This is useful for demonstration purposes if the Simulation study has been simplified by excluding components. Viewing plots in the Simulation study itself will only show components being analyzed. Excluded components are hidden. Now you can show stress or displacement results within the active model view so all components are visible.
To display SOLIDWORKS Simulation Results
To display SOLIDWORKS Simulation results in the graphics window, either choose Simulation Display from View Settings (in the Heads-up Display) or View > Display > Simulation Display.
- You must have the Simulation add-in enabled
- An existing Simulation study of the same configuration must be available with results
Then the PropertyManager provides you with options on what plot to view and different display options.
This pop-up is given when first enabling Simulation Display indicating its functionality. You can also overlay the Simulation results in Photoview 360 renderings.
