5 Reasons to Upgrade to SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional

5 Reasons to Upgrade to SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional

When it comes to engineering, there are many factors that contribute to creating your best designs. Not using the right software, for example, can result in a more time consuming and costly design process – especially when it comes to analysis. Just like how having the right tools in your tool bag can save time and money with repairs around the house, upgrading to a more advanced version of SOLIDWORKS Simulation can help you make better design decisions.

SOLIDWORK Simulation: Managing Contacts

SOLIDWORK Simulation: Managing Contacts

Managing contacts is something that comes up constantly when working on customer projects in Simulation. I recently had a project that involved a large and complex assembly with numerous contacts to be defined. There were three tools and plots in SOLIDWORKS and SOLIDWORKS Simulation that I used to visualize and check the contacts in my analysis: Interference Detection, Contact Visualization Plot, and Contact Pressure Plots.

There’s More Than One Way to Perform a Thermal Stress Analysis

There’s More Than One Way to Perform a Thermal Stress Analysis

Did you know that there are up to 15 ways to setup and run a thermal stress analysis using the tools in SOLIDWORKS Simulation and SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation? While the goals for a thermal stress analysis are the same, the assumptions you make and what you want to consider in your analysis all play a role in choosing a method and the final results you obtain.
