Why so long setups...?

Question asked by Damir Galic on Jul 9, 2020

So ... Why do I need to setup connections for 5 to 10 hours... and simulate in 10 minutes?

 

So please add automatic dectection for contact sets:

- beam - solid

- joint - solid

 

Funny thing solidworks automatically detects and creates solid-solid bonded contact for beam-solid...

 

And what does that mean for me? Applying 500 contact sets while solidworks being so slow working with this many. So instead of adding 1 contact set per 3 seconds it takes me 1 contact set per minute.

 

What's even weirder is that after simulation solidworks is refreshing model 10 times longer than simulation.
