Natural Frequency in Solidworks and ABAQUS

Hello Everybody,


All your suggestions are golden. I have started venturing into Solidworks simulation and have created a Simulation study to determine natural frequency of an assembly. The first five modes from solidworks are 7.3, 11.5, 20.59, 26.58, 55.11. A similar study was done in ABAQUS and the results are 10.59, 41.71, 57.57, 67.3, 330.76. The mesh elements, constraints, material properties and COM are similar in both studies. What are the other details to be considered to evaluate both the studies? ( I have no idea which results are correct)
