SOLIDWORKS Simulation Trend Tracker provides a way to track Simulation results as changes are made.
A Baseline is defined based on initial results. When modifications are made, either geometry or study setup, re-running the study will add iteration results. Tracking graphs provide a way to view changing values and a Trend Journal provides a Word document with tracked data over iterations.
This model has some changes to the physical geometry where the cutouts will be reduced in size (until fully suppressed) to see the change in stress and displacement. First run the study, start Trend Tracker and add Baseline results.
By default the Mass, maximum Von Mises stress and maximum Resultant Displacement will be added as tracked data graphs. These are added as Sensors in the SOLIDWORKS Design Tree.
If additional Stress and Displacement plots were available prior to starting the Trend Tracker, these will also be added as tracked data. Additional sensors can be created and then be added as a Tracked Data Graph.
Now any changes to the geometry, fixtures, loads, materials, etc can be made and the study re-run. This will be added as a new iteration.
As additional changes are made and the study solved, the tracked data graph can be viewed. Double-click on each plot feature to view.
Delete or revert back to any other iteration to view the full results.
Double-click on Trend Journal to view a Word document of the results of each iteration for the tracked data.
There are saved screenshots of each plot and iteration under <Simulation Results folder>\<Partname-Studyname>\Gallery.
As previous iterations can be restored, even with modified geometry, a copy of the model for each iteration is saved under <Simulation Results folder>\<Partname-Studyname>\Trend Files.
