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.
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.
Validate product performance and safety factors using finite element analysis (FEA) to perform structural simulation.
Predict component fatigue failures by examining repeated or random load cycles.
Predict mechanical or free-body motion and determine structural loads.
Parametric or topology optimization automatically finds the best design from dozens of possibilities.
Simulate aerodynamics or the delivery of liquids to improve product performance.
Examine how vibration or shock load can shorten equipment life.
Check heating, ventilating, and air conditioning systems for comfort and efficiency.
Optimize heat dissipation and the selection of electronic components.
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.
