How to Refresh SOLIDWORKS Simulation Plots [VIDEO]

When you are viewing a SOLIDWORKS Simulation plot and a graphical change has made to the model (like exploded views, hide/show, isolate), the original plot remains visible.  This is because the result data was loaded based on the original view state.  In order to update the…
