Copy Tabular Simulation Results to the Clipboard in SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2021

Article by Julian Wolf, CSWP updated March 9, 2021


SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2021 has added another option to export data from your study results. Besides generating a report, you can copy tabular data from several sources to the clipboard, and then paste this data into another document, such as a spreadsheet.

This data can be pulled from any tabular source in a PropertyManager, including reaction forces, free body forces, contact/friction forces and connector forces. In the study below, the connector forces have been listed for the four bolted connections (right-click Results Folder > List Connector Force).

Under Report Options, there is a button (highlighted by the red arrow above) to Copy to Clipboard. After clicking this button, the data is saved to the clipboard. It can then be pasted into a new document (see the raw data entered into a spreadsheet below).
