How to Use Symmetry in SOLIDWORKS Simulation to Reduce the number of Fixtures?

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Symmetry

Did you know you can use symmetry in SOLIDWORKS Simulation to reduce the number of fixtures required to stabilize your model? Using symmetry in simulation will not only simplify your model (and therefore drastically improve run time), but it eliminates the need to apply additional fixtures and this will result in even more accurate results.…

Don’t Settle for Anything Less with Mirrored Results about Planes of Symmetry in SolidWorks Simulation 2014 [VIDEO]

We have all used symmetry to boost our simulation times, whether it be planar or cyclic and were happy to have achieved the results in a short time, only to be told by the manager to run the simulation for the full model so it makes more sense to him and to the customers. Here…

SolidWorks Simulation – Use of Symmetry in Shell Elements [VIDEO]

For large problems, solid elements can often take a long time to mesh and solve. For thin bodies with constant thickness, we can replace the solid elements with shell elements which will significantly speed up the process of both meshing and solution. For bodies which are geometrically symmetric and are loaded symmetrically about a plane,…
