SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2017 has improved the workflow on how SOLIDWORKS Simulation beam joints get updated. In previous versions, modifying a model would cause a joint group in an existing studies to go out of date. The Joint Group feature would need to be edited and recalculated to update the joints.
SOLIDWORKS Simulation Beam Joints Option
SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2017 now has an option under Simulation > Options > System Options > General to select ‘Automatically update beam joints when study is activated‘. The joints are recalculated when the Simulation study is opened, saving you time by avoiding this manual step. The joints are only recalculated when there is a change to the model from the last time the study was active.
Activating the Simulation study after modifying the model will automatically update the joints.
