I have a two part assembly I am doing a simulation on. I have three versions of one of those parts. How can I sent up a single assembly/ simulation and use configuration to swap which version I want to run the sim on and then repeat this three times. Thank you in advance!
Can't find how to change the precision of results in my design study. Mass is only reported as .xx when I want .xxx. I am getting only 1 significant digit for the mass results, but I am getting 5 sig figs for displacement and 6 for stress. I can't find anywhere to force it to report a certain precision, or at least show in scientific notation.
Hi guys, I'm working on simulating a large assembly. The assembly has a mix of solids and shells. As you can see in the pictures I shared, the shell parts extend to the mid point of the solid piece. I used split lines on all parts to allow compatible mesh. I'm seeing inconsistency with the overlap; the top flat piece seems perfectly…(Show moreShow less)
What is the value for N/m/m^2 for 85 durometer polyurethane to enter in static simulation for elastic supports? What are the units N/m/m^2 in elastic support anyways? I can't find any information to pull values for this anywhere.
Units of (N/m)/m^2 are stiffness per unit area. This corresponds to the 'Distributed' option in an Elastic Support. I suggest taking a look at the following Help topic as a starting point: 2019 SOLIDWORKS Help - Connector - Elastic Support Here's an excerpt from the Help: Distributed The value of the stiffness per unit area. The…
Please refer to the following SOLIDWORKS Knowledge Base (KB) solution which addresses this behavior: S-074814: "When I run a SOLIDWORKS® Simulation study, why does the solver status dialog box not appear?" Here's one of the images from the KB solution just in case you have trouble accessing the KB solution:
Hi - I keep getting this error when I right click on my static study. But... all of my shells have a thickness. How do I eliminate this error? Similarly, I keep getting an error that the model may have updated. But... the model hasn't changed, and I've already clicked "Update All Components" multiple times. Thank you! Jon
It sounds like this calls for some investigation - the symptoms you describe could be specific to your files, user settings, workflow, or other software environment factors. Please report this to your VAR if you haven't already. If the software is indeed misbehaving here, reporting it to your VAR is the best way to both find a workaround that lets…
I am interested in purchasing a professional workstation laptop, which is used in engineering simulation not for gaming. What are the required specifications in this laptop so that it will be used in FE simulation works.
I'm running a transient thermal study over a period of time, and I want to export a table or graph of time vs temperature rather than defining the plot for each individual time step and recording that into my own spreadsheet.
Dear Solidworks Simulation users I'm trying to create a bunch of sensors of similar type, and I would typically like to copy one or several sensors or create a macro to create sensors, so that I will not have to make all those mouseclicks to select stress component, units etc. I tried to create a macro to do this, but the macro doesn't seem…(Show moreShow less)
