Richard M. Grant, Founder and President, Grantec Engineering Consultants Inc.
SOLIDWORKS Simulation is a very robust, well-established code that provides more bang for the buck than other analysis systems. Using SOLIDWORKS as the front end to SOLIDWORKS Simulation is a more efficient approach because we can handle more complex geometries. This allows us to conduct advanced analyses faster and more cost-effectively.
