See how to determine where a specific volume of fluid will lie inside a container and use a modeling technique to create a level marker in SOLIDWORKS.

In this blog, we’ll walk you through how to conduct linear static stress analyses on part designs within SOLIDWORKS simulation and explain why the right assumptions will help you get better results faster.
Discretizing your CAD model into a simulation mesh is one of the most important concepts of finite element analysis (FEA) in SOLIDWORKS Simulation.
In this blog, I am going to talk about some techniques to get your mesh exactly how you want it — refined in areas of interest and coarser in areas where the stress is not of interest.
Sensors are useful tools in simulation. They can give you results in the same location across different studies, so you can compare mesh quality, geometry changes, or effects of boundary conditions.
In transient (time-based) studies, you can use sensors to plot the results at a location over time. In this example, I am going to show you how to create a sensor for a node inside a body and plot the results in that location over time in SOLDWORKS Simulation.
In this blog, I will show you an easy and straightforward process to convert scan data into usable surfaces inside of SOLIDWORKS. As an example, I will be using an STL file which is a scan of a leg with the objective of making a custom connection interface along the back of the leg in the calf region. This interface region will be used to model a custom leg brace that will later be 3D printed.
