Smashing studs is fun!!!

I need to used solidworks simulation to figure out how many tons of pressure it would take to smash a copper stud.  Can solidworks even do this?  We just need to get in the ballpark range so that we can figure out what machine we need to buy.  The stud is 1.689" in diameter and we need to smash it to a thickness of 1" on one of the ends.  Also, if you just happen to know of another way to figure this out without using solidworks, that would be just as good.  Thank you in advance for your responses.
