I noticed water and air are in the materials you can make parts out of. Are those just meant to test buoyancy by comparing the water/air weight to other materials?
Would there be a reason to model a container and add water to it in solidworks?
I imagine it could be useful for multiple reasons. For water at least it could be used for weight calculations and photo view renderings. I haven't messed with simulation other than flow simulation but I imagine thermal studies would require a material to be defined for the solid.
I've only seen it used for flow sims. I imagine it would be good in photo rendering as well but have only done that in Blender.
We had a custom project with stacked water tanks.
Modelling the water allowed us to readily locate the assembly's CG and the loaded weight.
