Hello, I built a cart in solidworks and i want to find out how can i fined the stress on the cart? the point is that i built it via assembly.
1. If you have SolidWorks Premium,
2. just activate your Simulation Add-in and
3. take an FEA course.
Once all three conditions are fulfilled, you will be able to create and run a Simulation study for your assembly.
If you don't have SolidWorks Premium, your cart is, or can be approximated as, a single part, like a weldment, and you don't need very sophisticated results, then you may be able to get something useful without going through Alin's 3 steps. Save the assembly as a part. Combine the bodies. Run SimulationXpress.
Alin's soggestion is a much better approach to take. SimulationXpress is very limited in its boundary conditions, analyses and results. People who don't have a fairly good understanding of how FEA works can come up with very bad conclusions.
thx, but it's written here that
"simulationXpress it's not supported for assembly"
That's why Jerry said to save the assembly as a part and combine the bodies.
thx !!!!!!! :))))))
hey, i tryed to save the file by changing his ending
but it failed.
how can i save the assembly as a part?
thx again !
1. Open your Assembly
2. Select File, Save As
3. In the "Save as type:" drop down list, select Part
4. Select your options for Geometry
5. Click Save.
Apperently in my student solid i don't have this option
can i send the assembly to you by email, and you will save it as a part?
You can also insert an empty part in your assembly, edit it and use the Join command to bring all the other components inside it.
