I need to creat a vacuum support to analyse my work. i.e. I need hold a large mirror with vacuum against the gravity and analysis is.Does any one know how I can incorporate vacuum support in solidworks simulation?
Thanks in advance.
Hi Pradipta: Assuming static analysis? You can apply a negative pressure to the suction surfaces such that
Weight = Pressure x (sum of) areas. Then you'll need to turn-on the soft spring option in the Properties of the study since there's no rigid fixtures. The soft-spring option will help stabilize the model. Does that help? -Tony
Thanks. I will try it this week end and then again we can have a chat .
