Hi, I'm currently designing a support frame on wheels for boat transport. I can't run stress simulations in assem mode. Can anyone help with this? We,ve only just started so nothing to show. Any suggestions would be a great help. Thanks
What is your SW or Simulation licence level (std, pro, pre)?
Do you have SW Sim add-ins activation option?
Thanks for the reply. I'm working in Professional so I can only simulate in part mode. This is fine for individual components but not for the whole assem. I was thinking along the idea that when I have the concept up together sending it to someone to do the simulation and analysis. Then we can make the necessary adjustments to the design.
I assume by Professional you meant SW Professional, wherein you do not have SW Simulation Standard package included in it. Having said that, I am also guessing that you are using SimXpress tool which doesn't allow you to perform analysis on assembly. As a side note here, the SimXpress tool is 'very' limited and you do not have access to many options.
On the other note about what you mentioned, it may worth to outsource the simulation if there is only one project, but having the tool and expertise in -house could be very beneficial.
Hope it helps.
Thanks for your comments, at the moment this would be a one off job, so out sourcing would be my ideal solution. If I keep getting jobs like this then you're right it would be of benefit to have the facility in house.
