What is SOLIDWORKS Simulation and how can it help me?

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Software

If you are an existing SOLIDWORKS user then you need to take a look at the Simulation suite of products that are built right into SOLIDWORKS. Simulation software is a powerful, intuitive and accurate 3D engineering solution designed to help improve product performance and quality by indicating how your design will behave before it is built. Discover SOLIDWORKS Simulation To…

How to show stress on specific components in SOLIDWORKS Simulation [VIDEO]

If you ran a Simulation study on an assembly, you may need to narrow in on one particular component to review its results.  Here are two methods that can be used to show stress on specific components and the benefits in different situations: Method #1: Isolate Command for Quick Review of Specific Components After selecting one or…

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 plot information to match the graphical change, the plot must…

How to Troubleshoot “Model is Unstable” Errors in SOLIDWORKS Simulation [VIDEO]

If you are a new user to Simulation or you just have a complicated assembly, you will probably see the error message “Model is unstable. Check that you have applied adequate fixtures to stabilize the model” at some point.  This just indicates that there is a component(s) that is free to wander where it likes and…

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Accuracy (?)

A common concern I hear when presenting SOLIDWORKS Simulation is whether or not the results are accurate. This is a difficult – if not impossible – thing to prove without empirical data to back up the results. To reassure those concerned, I usually rely upon the ‘Validation Examples’ included in SOLIDWORKS and verified by NAFEMS, which may…
