Reduce Costs with Optimization Studies in SOLIDWORKS Simulation

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Optimization

When completing structural designs, it is common practice to “over-design” our materials. That is, use a size or thickness of material that we know works despite the potential for additional weight. This practice can have a hidden cost though. Why are we designing with heavier,…
