I can't run a simulation because "External Loads Advisor" is grayed-out.
My Solidworks screen is attached which shows my assembly and gray-out of "External Loads Advisor".
You need to create your simulation study first and then you can have access to everything you need to set up your loads, fixtures, contacts and so on.
Your answer is correct and I thank you. I had done what you suggested. However, I missed one step at the end. I was not clicking the large check mark, √ in the upper right of the screen. I know this is a novice error. However, I am a Solidworks novice but I'm getting better.
Thanks for your input.
This is John DeBaise and I realized what was wrong. I simply did not click the large green check mark in the upper right of the screen.
I've learned that you need to click the large green check mark to update the sketch.
