In the world of finite element analysis, or FEA, many problems require nonlinear simulations to be accurate. Nonlinear stress analysis in advanced tools like SIMULIA Abaqus can account for extreme deformation and complex contact on large models, but these studies can also take a long time to solve. How can users perform these advanced simulations without sacrificing a huge increase in solve time?

In March, SOLIDWORKS started offering a new product called SIMULIA Structural Simulation Engineer. There’s a lot of marketing information out there, but not much information about how this new tool fits in with the other simulation offerings from SOLIDWORKS and SIMULIA. So let’s take a look at what SSE is and what’s different about it.
There’s a lot that goes into creating SOLIDWORKS drawing templates – sheet formats, linked custom properties, document properties, and more. With all of this, one topic that often gets overlooked is how to keep your title blocks neat and organized. Here are some tips to help.
Get the latest news on SOLIDWORKS CAM. With the release of SOLIDWORKS 2018, CAM is now fully integrated with SOLIDWORKS. Join Hawk Ridge Systems CAM Specialist, Daniel Lyon, as he demonstrates the process of milling and turning sample parts. You'll learn about high-speed material removal, fixture avoidance in assembly machining and many more of the integrated capabilities in SOLIDWORKS CAM.
SOLIDWORKS gets used in a lot of fabrication shops and a question that often comes up is how to create a model and generate a flat pattern for a sheet metal square to round.
