James asked for it so here it is........
I will go first:
2. The ability to locate a 'remote load' using one coordinate system yet be able to define the force(s) directions by another coordinate system without having to 'make' a new point/CS.
(Thanks Bill McEachern)
Same applies for this idea, I created an ER.
Since this will be a lonely endeavor here is another one:
3) Make engineering notation available in all plots and plot options - you know everything by 10^3. then you don't care so much about MPa vs. Pa or ksi or psi or thou vs inches.....mm vs meters and the list goes on.
This ER is already present:
SPR 541216 - Allow engineering notation in simulation results
I can guess who created it
why don't you submit your ideas here:
SOLIDWORKS World 2017 Top Ten List
Andreas Klumpp that is why and I can find no way to change it via my profile.
Can you help James out, please?
I would rather do it here. I am subscribed and I don't want to sort through all the other enhancements that have nothing to do with simulation nor deal with all the other comments that might arise. Here, other simulation users can discuss in depth if required the pros and cons of a given request or provide guidance on how one achieves the function should it already exists. It is far more convenient for me at any rate to do it here. And at least here they likely won't get drowned out by the sheer volume of things that will likely occur in a general setting. Others should chime in if they disagree.
4) this is a SWX enhancement for shell modeling. It would be nice if the offset surface command if edge end and mid points were available to position surface offset distances. It would make constructing shells from solids much easier.
For Flow Simulation:
5) In a time dependent tracer study it would be really handy to allow for a "goal" to be set up that will track the tracer concentration over the requested time of the study at say the outlet. This would allow for easy compilation of the RTD (residence time distribution) curve for the tracer element. Very handy in disinfection work. Further on this subject would be automatic computation of "turnover times" likely easily obtained from the LMA calc when it is enabled - local mean age. Of interest here would be the time required for some specifiable percent of the fluid in the volume to change. Having predefined tracer elements typically used in liquids would also be a nice touch.
Simulation: how about being able to select areas to include/exclude when doing an h or p-adaptive study? If there is a way to do this, I haven't found it.
That would be handy. Were you thinking on a part level or body level? I suppose it could go to a face level of specificity. It would be nice if you could have an option to use incompatible mesh on mesh failure or use incompatible as a default for mesh refinement studies......I would rather have it run that fail.
I was initially thinking face level for use with split lines, and/or sections of a body, mainly to exclude known singularities when trying to focus on one specific area of the model. It would save lots of time and be more efficient having the software do the mesh refinement automatically while excluding the singularities on other parts of the model, rather than having to use split lines and run repeated studies with manual mesh controls.
Bill, iso plotting has never been asked by anyone as an enhancement request.
I even participate in Dassault Systèmes surveys for what concerns simulation ideas but I've never seen it in their list.
That's very strange because this is a very important feature.
I've created for you an ER so that an SPR will be generated for this and we'll be able to track it.
Another thing that might be useful is being able to view normal and shear stresses in user selected directions, as opposed to just the global x, y, z planes. Simple example: sectioning a curved beam/rod at a specified angle and viewing the normal/shear stresses to that cut plane.
