Hi   I got a pipe with a coupler on it. It's shrink fit between each other. As comparing with the length of pipe , the wall of it is quite thin, so I would like to make pipe a shell. Then I always get error messages when I try to apply shrink fit between coupler and pipe. So I suppose shrink fit doesn't work on shell, is it right?   Thank you… (Show more)

Hello Everyone,   I am new to Simulation and I am trying to create a full assembly to do some simulation on.  When I added a part I meshed it and when I run it I get the following error message "Stiffness matric diagonal coeficient is zero at equation: 20407.  If I remove the part everything is fine.  I don't see why I am getting this error.   … (Show more)

Hey all, I'm trying to do a motion analysis of a sub assembly, when I first ran the analysis, it 'crashed' and prompted me to put components into a rigid group (which is exactly what I want). However, I don't get how creating the group helps the analysis, reading through the SolidWorks help it didn't mention anything about how to use it. The… (Show more)

Click to view contentHello everyone, I am trying to simulate the process of a tip approaching, contacting and retracting from a sample from a lateral direction. I use a non-linear static study of SolidWorks Premium. The tip is attached to one end of a triangular cantilever, the other end of which is fixed by fixed geometry. The fixture of the sample is defined by… (Show more)

Hi all,   I´ve been doing some trials with simulation drop test, got some weird results and here I am, trying to understand it.   The drop test is of a product within it´s packaging (molded pulp tray). When the assembly hits the floor, instead of crushing the packaging and stop, the product crushes the packaging a bit, then passes through the… (Show more)

Hi -   I have an object that is made of many pieces of sheet metal (about 30 individual pieces), welded together.  Each individual metal piece tends to be pretty simple, so that it can be cut on a laser from flat plate stock.  But welded together, the pieces form a pretty complex 3D shape.    In Solidworks, I've modeled each metal piece as… (Show more)

Hi, I have a part attached , I just want to do an analysis of putting a load (just for example 600.0kg total on 2 surfaces on the beam.) and get  FOS. I have the 2 surfaces shown in red here, beam fixed at both ends. The simulation doesn't seem to run, wondering if someone could take a look its probably very basic , but I don't use simulation… (Show more)

Hello,   I am trying to simulate an electronic device (can't post too much info about it) and I have an aluminum thin plate (about .060" thick) that is being attached to an aluminum housing. The thin plate is secured in place by screws, there are 3 sections of this plate that are in direct contact with the housing (the rest of the plate is not in… (Show more)

Click to view contentHi people   I have modeled a steel construction, and I now have to run some simulation on it. I find this task is very difficult with my level of knowledge in simulation, and since it can take years before I need to simulate something like this again I need someone to do this for me. Is there anyone on this forum that can do this for me (I want… (Show more)

Hello;         We are doing a series of studies, some being done when we're not present. How do you determine how long a study took after it's done etc.?   Thanks in advance for any input. Rob_D 2017 sp5.
