Self-equilibrated Models

How to Use Symmetry in SOLIDWORKS Simulation to Reduce the number of Fixtures?

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Symmetry

Did you know you can use symmetry in SOLIDWORKS Simulation to reduce the number of fixtures required to stabilize your model? Using symmetry in simulation will not only simplify your model (and therefore drastically improve run time), but it eliminates the need to apply additional…

Stabilize SOLIDWORKS Simulation Studies with Soft Spring and Inertial Relief

SOLIDWORKS Simulation offers two techniques for stabilizing self-equilibrated models: Soft Springs or Inertial Relief. In a self-equiblibrated model, all of the applied loads are inherently balanced which means that we don’t expect the model to be unstable in any direction (or move away in any…
