I have a big symmetric assembly. I try to do static analysis of it, by creating a sketch above one half and using Extruded Cut to get rid of that half. Unfortunately, Solidworks also makes a mesh for parts from that deleted half. How i can fix this problem? Do I need to delete that half in some other way or maybe first use suppress option for… (Show more)

I am trying to simulate the motion of a prosthetic hand grasping onto an object using motion analysis contact bodies. However, when i set the contact between the fingers and the object the fingers penetrate the object as there is no contact. What could be the problem? I have attached a zip file that contains the assembly with the motion study.

Can beam elements be built from just points in space? Every example of Simulation beams I've seen includes a solid weldment.   I just want to build beams as line elements between points in space without any solid geometry, then define the cross section via a pull down menu that allows section definition by number entry, say a hollow tube defined… (Show more)

Click to view contentHi   I am trying to simualte a quite simple weldment simualtion to understand how Solidworks (v:2018) simualtes this kind of joints, but the weldment check plot it's not available. i am using a shell shs post welded to a solid baseplate with 8mm one side fillet  but when i right click in the results folder to check the weldment plot is not… (Show more)

I'm running a simulation pushing a screw into a wooden block to test how deep the helices penetrate the block. There is a constant 150 N force in the direction of the block and the screw helices have a no penetration contact with friction. Ultimately the simulation is failing and watching the resulting animation shows the screw bouncing back and… (Show more)

Click to view contentHow do you calculate the bolt preload for Bolt connectors in SW Simulation? I'm going  to try to make this super easy for you all.  Here is a link to two PDF  files, one for USA bolts and the other for Metric bolts, where the values of Ats (Tensile Stress Area, length^2) and Sp (Proof Load Strength, force/length^2) are  provided in one… (Show more)

Hi   I'm completely new to SW so I may word this question incorrectly. I would like to find some software so that I can perform some dynamic simulation on a prototype, I believe in SW it is referred to as motion analysis. I also understand that the output of motion analysis can be used in simulation. But in my prototype I want to be able to… (Show more)

Dear. As it is my graduation project, the 1st using  Solidworks. I constructed the attached blade, since I am looking to run some tests on it. My Goal is to measure deformation and displacement and in further stages vibration generated by this Blade due to force f ( axial, transversal). The force will be applied to the tip of the Blade, The Force… (Show more)

Doing a motion analysis in Simulation Standard - using a model with a vertically opening door and springs to assist opening (not enough force to open), and modeled with mates that limit the distance (using gas springs which have a stroke length), if the door material is set to steel, the motion study is correct - the door does not move.  But when… (Show more)
