SOLIDWORKS Simulation Design Insight Plot

The SOLIDWORKS Simulation Design Insight Plot, also known as “load path”, is a plot that shows the regions of the model that carry the loads most efficiently. It can be useful in part modification in the post-processing of your design. How will a Design Insight Plot help reduce cost? If we think about this from…

SOLIDWORKS Simulation: Three Incremental Control Techniques

Arc length control

Nonlinear analysis is often decided to be used out of necessity, however there are other benefits to using nonlinear analysis. Incremental control techniques are a massive piece of the puzzle in how nonlinear studies are run and give some awesome benefits that linear static analysis can’t offer. Today we are going to talk about the…

How to save time creating SOLIDWORKS Simulation by copying a Study

Copy SOLIDWORKS Simulation Study

Want to save time when using SOLIDWORKS Simulation? Here we show you how to duplicate a study and copy features from one study to another. This makes it easy to run several iterations of a simulation. Because, let’s face it, we never run just one simulation. It’s a process, made up of many iterations of a…
