SOLIDWORKS Simulation or 3DEXPERIENCE Works Simulation SIMULIA?

Structural Mechanics Engineer

Which one do you choose, SOLIDWORKS Simulation or 3DEXPERIENCE Works Simulation SIMULIA? This is quite a common question when solutions overlap with each other a little bit. But a true answer to this question arises not only from the kind of studies we are able to perform but also from what happens upstream and downstream…

Resolving Mesh Failures and Errors in SOLIDWORKS Simulation

SOLIDWORKS Mesh Failure

Meshing is a crucial step for SOLIDWORKS Simulation. When working with assemblies or complex parts you may experience SOLIDWORKS mesh failures or errors with messages like “mesh terminated” or “failure to mesh part” for certain features, or components. The first step in debugging SOLIDWORKS mesh failures is looking at your geometry. Based on your analysis…

Stop Stressing over Product Validation with SOLIDWORKS Simulation

Product Validation Simulation

If your product design doesn’t work in the real world, it’s a failure – a basic principle that every good designer understands. It’s also the primary reason physical prototyping has traditionally played an important role in the product validation process for manufacturers. Prototyping allows manufacturers to physically test a new design to failure, gain insight…

SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation Remote Solver (Network Solving)

SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation software provides the ability to share the calculations of a project over a network connection to a SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation Remote Solver. Resources are then freed up on the local computer to continue other work without reduced performance as the solver is running.  You can open a new SOLIDWORKS window to continue…

What is the SOLIDWORKS Simulation Trend Tracker?

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Trend Tracker

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…
