Discover Powerful Electromagnetic Design inside SOLIDWORKS at a Live Seminar in Oakville, ON

Antenna and Transformer

Join us at Javelin’s Oakville HQ on January 16, 2018 for a free one-day seminar to learn how EMWorks’ flagship products, EMS and HFWorks can make your electromagnetic designs easy. See how you can compute and visualize the electromagnetic fields generated by electromagnets, permanent magnets, coils, high-speed digital circuits, antennas, microwave components, etc. Features & Capabilities of The Magnetic and Electric Field Modeling and Simulation Otherwise known as EMS, this…

SOLIDWORKS PDM Failed to create temporary file for SOLIDWORKS Simulation

If your SOLIDWORKS Simulation results folder is associated with PDM, you may receive the error message ‘Failed to create temporary file‘. This can happen when PDM attempts to create a preview of the Simulation results. This will typically occur when you try to create a new mesh, or show a result plot. To avoid this error, you can add Simulation .cwr file to the Exclusion list located from…

Designing a Metal Detector with SOLIDWORKS and EMS Simulation software

Metal Detector in use

Electromagnetics and its impact It is amazing how many applications the theory of Electromagnetics has in today’s world. If Faraday and Maxwell have a chance to view the number of devices that makes use of their discovery, they will be simply blown away. Simply by the impact of their discovery in today’s world, many scientist believe that these two men were probably the most important…

The best choice for Global Contact in SOLIDWORKS Simulation

This is one of the most frequently asked questions in SOLIDWORKS Simulation: Is there any better choice for Global Contact in SOLIDWORKS Simulation? There are three different types of Global Contact in SOLIDWORKS Simulation as shown in the figure below: No Penetration, Bonded and Allow Penetration In general, you should avoid using No Penetration as Global Contact; since SOLIDWORKS Simulation is constantly looking to check if No Penetration contact condition…

How to reduce SOLIDWORKS load time for models containing Simulation data

Is it taking too long to load SOLIDWORKS models that contain simulation data? If so, then you should reduce SOLIDWORKS load time by utilizing a performance enhancement introduced to SOLIDWORKS Simulation in the 2014 release. Using a simulation system option, you can control when simulation results are loaded. So if you are opening a large SOLIDWORKS file, you can exclude simulation results from being loaded until SOLIDWORKS requires the study data. This means that you can run…

SOLIDWORKS Simulation did not recognize my Sheet Metal part? [VIDEO]

If  SOLIDWORKS Simulation did not recognize sheet metal part when you created a simulation study then watch the video below to learn how to solve the issue. In the figure below, the created part seems to be sheet metal since a ‘sheet metal’ folder exist in the FeatureManager Design Tree. However there is no Sheet Metal Feature that fully defines the extruded feature as a Sheet Metal part….

How to add materials to the SOLIDWORKS Material Database [VIDEO]

Since the SOLIDWORKS 2014 release you are able to download additional materials for your SOLIDWORKS Simulation Material Database from the Matereality website which has a much broader range of advanced material properties that have been physically tested. As shown in Figure 1, you can access additional materials using the SOLIDWORKS Materials Web Portal (Matereality) on the bottom-left of the SOLIDWORKS Material Database properties panel. Click on ‘here’, then a message will pop…
