SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2020 Mixed Draft and High Quality Mesh

Draft and High Quality Mesh colour

Draft Quality elements provide faster solve times as each tetrahedral element only contain 4 nodes, one at each vertex.  Switching over to High Quality mesh elements is required for accurate stress results, which adds midpoint nodes putting the node count for a tetrahedral element up…

Distributed Coupling for Bolts and Pins in SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2020

The rigid connection type (top) produces artificial stress concentrations in the bolt head region. The distributed option (bottom) produces a more realistic stress field.

Getting simulation results quickly, while maintaining accuracy, is always a top priority for any analyst. Replacing modeled fasteners with bolt or pin connectors in SOLIDWORKS Simulation is a great way to simplify your model, thus significantly reducing your solution time, without compromising on accuracy. The…

Get peace of mind with the SOLIDWORKS 2020 Simulation Evaluator

Access the Simulation Evaluator directly from the Simulation Tree

Few things grind an analyst’s gears like setting up a long study to run overnight, and then returning the following morning only to find that the study failed after 25 minutes due to storage limitations in the results folder. Luckily, this will be another one…

SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2020 Collapse Tree Folders

SOLIDWORKS Simulation study trees can become long and harder to navigate when you start into more complex studies.  While adding new contacts/loads/fixtures and defining materials/shells/etc, the folders and sub-folders are expanded. In previous versions, collapsing the tree required clicking the arrows beside each sub-folder. New…
