The full integration creates a short learning curve and eliminates the redundant tasks required with traditional analysis tools. Component materials, connections, and relationships defined during design development are fully understood for simulation. Products can be tested for strength and safety, and the kinematics fully analyzed. Further, a wide variety of geometry types are supported so you can simulate the real world performance of solid, thin-walled, and structural features.
|Compare Alternatives. Determine the best design option by comparing strengths, life, cost, and weight. Perform all comparisons and design modifications within the SOLIDWORKS environment.|
Failure Prediction: Save the time and prototyping costs while creating safer, more durable products. Simulation predicts structural failure thresholds due to yielding, overheating, buckling, and fatigue.
|Simulate Repeated Loading: Simulate, evaluate, and improve a part or assembly that has to stand up to daily use. Evaluate responses to varying speeds or frequencies, and estimate the design life of your entire product.|
