    Can I get Stiffness Matrix from SW??

    Gopal Koya

      Hello all,

       

      Is it possible to obtain the exact stiffness matrix for a beam structure with non circular cross section?

       

      For example, I modelled a drill-bit in solidworks and now I want the exact stiffness matrix when the loading and boundary conditions are specified. This is a bit different from general beam element of circular cross section as the cross section of drillbit contains warping effects. Hence, I need this through solidworks. Please help me.
