3D DESIGN SIMULATION SUITE

From the first concept to the final prototype, our 3D Design Simulation Suite of products allows engineers to predict the impact of stress, heat, vibration, and much more - without physical testing. Whether the goal is to speed up a design process or prevent costly retrofits, Hawk Ridge Systems has solutions from both SOLIDWORKS and SIMULIA to help get it right the first time.

 

SIMULATION TOOLS FOR THE SOLIDWORKS DESIGN ENVIRONMENT

Innovation starts with someone asking, “What if?” or “Why not?” Answering these questions is often impractical with physical prototypes or hand calculations, not to mention the necessary time and cost.

Hawk Ridge Systems knows that simulation provides the most value in guiding design decisions before metal is cut or wires are installed. That's why we offer complete, CAD-integrated solutions for testing a concept, optimizing a design, or correcting a real-world failure.

SOLIDWORKS SIMULATION

With SOLIDWORKS Simulation analysis, Finite Element Analysis (FEA) can employ real-world conditions, explore design changes, predict failures, and reduce prototyping costs.

SOLIDWORKS PLASTICS

SOLIDWORKS Plastics injection molding simulation predicts how melted plastic flows during the injection molding process. Reduce manufacturing defects while saving time, energy and money.

SOLIDWORKS FLOW SIMULATION

The intuitive Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) allows designers and analysts to test real-world environments.

SIMULIA

SIMULIA is the industry-leading FEA solver for advanced multi-physics analysis. SIMULIA Abaqus is the go-to-choice for multifluid structure interaction.

SIMULATION SERVICES

The professional services team at Hawk Ridge Systems can help you solve complex structural, thermal, fluid flow- just about any analysis functionality you need.

3D DESIGN SIMULATION SUITE FEATURES

Engineers from any industry can improve their designs with CAD-integrated simulation tools. From a first-pass design check to forensic analysis, SOLIDWORKS and SIMULIA tools can test for almost any performance requirement.

  • STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS

    Validate product performance and safety factors using finite element analysis (FEA) to perform structural simulation.

  • FATIGUE ANALYSIS

    Predict component fatigue failures by examining repeated or random load cycles.

  • MOTION ANALYSIS

    Predict mechanical or free-body motion and determine structural loads.

  • DESIGN OPTIMIZATION

    Parametric or topology optimization automatically finds the best design from dozens of possibilities.

  • FLUID FLOW ANALYSIS

    Simulate aerodynamics or the delivery of liquids to improve product performance.

  • VIBRATION ANALYSIS

    Examine how vibration or shock load can shorten equipment life.

  • HVAC ANALYSIS

    Check heating, ventilating, and air conditioning systems for comfort and efficiency.

  • ELECTRONIC COOLING

    Optimize heat dissipation and the selection of electronic components.

WHY 3D DESIGN SIMULATION TOOLS?

Simulation and analysis tools deliver actionable results for both the casual designer or engineer as well as the dedicated analyst. They provide a completely integrated design-and analysis strategy, without ever having to leave the familiar SOLIDWORKS environment. Other benefits include:

  • Evaluates the performance of multiple variables at a rapid pace.
  • Reduces time-to-market by quickly determining optimal design solutions.
  • Predicts product performance, Factor of Safety (FOS), and fatigue capabilities early-on in the process.
  • Reduces materials cost. Enables design teams to safely remove unnecessary material.
  • By virtually testing and refining your designs first, the costly testing and certification process is streamlined reducing your time-to-market.

WHO USES SIMULATION & ANALYSIS TOOLS?

See how Markforged used SOLIDWORKS Simulation to become one of the most well respected, innovative and rapidly growing 3D printing companies in the world.

To quickly develop its breakthrough technology, efficiently design new products, and successfully grow the company, Markforged needed a robust 3D development platform. The company chose SOLIDWORKS, acquiring SOLIDWORKS Simulation and SOLIDWORKS Premium, and more recently implementing the SOLIDWORKS PDM product data management (PDM) system.
