SOLIDWORKS Simulation Mesh Controls

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…

Adding Mesh Controls to Beam Elements in SOLIDWORKS Simulation

Beam elements in SOLIDWORKS Simulation are simplified elements that don’t require any size settings when meshing.  The SOLIDWORKS Simulation Beam Elements are meshed with a default size that’s required for the calculations. However in situations where you have bonded contacts between a solid or shell…
